No NCAA inquiries at Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech is not being investigated by the NCAA.

With many other schools in the ACC and SEC, including Georgia, receivingrecent taps on the shoulder from college sports’ governing body, Tech was all clear Wednesday night.

On Wednesday, Georgia became the latest school to be notified that the NCAA wants to take a look around. The Bulldogs join North Carolina, Alabama, South Carolina and Florida for alleged improper relationships between players and agents.

Even the NCAA knows the best way to screw up a perfectly good party is to invite Nerds.

I have been told by more than one person that several Dawgs were there but they have all graduated and are in the NFL. AJ Green? I don’t know. He says he was in SC at home. Hopefully, someone can verify it and we can all move on.

Go jackets,

you want to talk about Mooney slugging a girl in the face?
you want to discuss Joey Hamilton?
you want to discuss Reuben houston?
you want to discuss the most recent deal with your DE?

Pot meet kettle. It’s best to leave it alone because everyone has college kids that get into trouble.

DawginLex, recent deal with our DE ???

It’s true that everyone has college kids that get into trouble, but even you must admit that UGAG has had way more than its share lately. And don’t expect the Tech fans to be quiet about it. You wouldn’t be if the shoe were on the other foot.

BTW, DawginLex, if your former players were still in school at the time when they were there, then the school will still be held accountable. And yes, I know, you didn’t say that they were.

OMG.. One game two years ago you barely win by three points out of the last, what, eight or nine now? That is all you got? Wow, we are really scared of the dreaded ACC Champs now, woooooo! HAHAHAAHHA

How is it an NCAA violation for a former player who has been drafted to attend the party?

If they are still students then good for them. That means they want to finish college. But they have been drafted. They are no longer under the NCAA’s rules.

Spike, if you look at all those wins you mutts had over Tech in the past 10 years, you will see that you just “barely won” some of those too. A three point win was good enough for the mutts in some of those wins, so it for damn sure was good enough for Tech 2 years ago too. And if you had been in the stadium in Atlanta last year (which you obviously weren’t), you would know that the majority of the mutt fans there just knew that Tech was going to score at the end and win it. It’s only by sheer bad luck that Tech did not pull it out, even though, to be fair, we didn’t really deserve it.

DawginLex, if they had returned to school after having already played in the NFL, you are correct. But if that was their senior year, and they were still in school, even if already drafted, I THINK the NCAA will hold the school accountable. That’s the NCAA for you; I’m not trying to rile you up or anything

No way. I live in Lexington KY. Heard of John Wall? He is still planning on graduating from college. There is no way he is accountable to the NCAA now for anything other than if he pays current student athletes.

Gotta go back to work. I just hope AJ is telling the truth and this goes away.

Easy to explain. All the GT people are too busy at Comic-Con to talk to agents….Wait — for a GT player, maybe Comic-Con participation is like talking to an agent.

We need an investigation! Where’s Terrence Moore? Call him up!

The NCAA never investigates unless something is there…they always find something. They must have some hard evidence…and there is no telling who the player is….the NCAA will find something. Just hope its nothing serious.

Is anyone surprised? There’s nobody playing for Georgia Tech that an agent would want to deal with. After all, remember that in Florida, for an agent to make this kind of contact with college athletes is a *crime*. Name one player on Tech’s roster that you would risk jail time just for the right to represent him in his NFL negotiations. I’ll wait.

Supersize, Yea, riiiigghhtt!!. Remember the 51-7 debacle.

yes, Spike, I do remember that one, but all the remainding games were close, 3 points, 6 points, 7 points, 12 points, and 14 points. I guess since you think Tech’s 3 point victory over the mutts 2 years ago was a fluke, then at least two of those were flukes too. And since you like living in the past, you might also be interested in knowing that the four of the five largest victory margins in the series are both owned by Tech, and that fifth one is a tie (44 points)..

sorry, that should have been “remaining” games, not “remainding.”

It’s ironic there are jokes about “no talent” = no cheating investigations. Seems to me one school in this state won a conference and had 2 first round picks.
And one school’s AD is mad drunk driving downtown with hookers in the car. Class. Not to mention the 40+ arrests over 3 years….THAT deserves USC style discipline.

UGA leads the NCAA in football player arrests over the last 5 years. I think that FACT alone is enough to demonstrate the Classiness of the mutt crowd.
Mark Richt spent too long with Bowden — he learned to single out and recruit the biggest thugs he could find. Ethics, morals, and class be damned!!

You know it’s bad when the UT fans are classier than the UGA fans (and that isn’t easy to do being dressed in orange!!).

And for the record, I truly hope that Green WAS in Charleston and isn’t guilty of any violations — I don’t want to listen to the in-breeders use that as an excuse after November. I want them at full strength, and hopefully undefeated when we stomp a hole in them in front of their own crowd!!!

@ Doug Roberson: Did you really delete my last comment? If so, you need to look at the comments of others on this blog that have posted similar if not worse comments. I actually thought you might take offense to my first comment but you let it go…
