Green appeal set for Friday

A.J. Green's appeal to the NCAA to have his four-game suspension reduced will now be on Friday, Georgia is saying.

Claude Felton, UGA's associate athletics director, said Georgia hopes to get a ruling on Friday, but there's no guarantee.

Meanwhile, we wait to find out the status Green's appeal, there's more news about the man who purchased Green's jersey.

Chris Hawkins is facing trial on felony cocaine trafficking charges, as well as a misdemeanor charge for marijuana possession. Hawkins, who lives in the Raleigh, N.C., area, was stopped in Madison, a half-hour drive from Athens.

This is according to ESPN's Mark Schlabach, who also reports:

1) North Carolina defensive end Robert Quinn introduced Green to Hawkins (via Facebook). Green and Hawkins never met face-to-face, something Hawkins told me last week.
2) Hawkins, when stopped by police in Madison, was driving a U-Haul rented by NFL running back Willie Parker, a former teammate at North Carolina.

I'm not sure any of this has a direct bearing on Green's case, but it's interesting nonetheless.

Just wondering out loud, but what are the chances that the district attorney and judge involved with the case have UGA ties?

If you were to follow the bouncing ball of logic on this, it does not stack up well for AJ or the Dawgs. 1)Hawkins/Parker purchases furniture from the same hotel at the center of all this agent mess (The Fontainebleau). 2)Hawkins arrested for drug trafficing 30 miles from Athens. 3)AJ sells his jersey to Hawkins. I am not saying AJ is connected to the hip with Hawkins, but this sure does not look good for AJ or the Dawgs! At the very least, AJ had a very, very STUPID moment. Let's hope it was just ONE moment!
