Richt hopes NCAA will hear Green appeal on Tuesday
Sunday, September 12, 2010
ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia coach Mark Richt says he hopes the NCAA will hear the school's appeal to shorten A.J. Green's four-game suspension on Tuesday.
The NCAA ruled last week Green must sit out four games to regain his eligibility after selling a game jersey for $1,000. Green, the team's top receiver, sold his jersey from last season's Independence Bowl.
Green already has been held out of two games, including Saturday's 17-6 loss at South Carolina. Georgia (1-1 overall, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) dropped out of the Top 25 on Sunday.
Richt said Sunday he must prepare a plan without Green in this week's game against No. 12 Arkansas.
