Still nothing on A.J. Green

I’ll preface this by saying there is still little sign that A.J. Green’s eligibility is in question. And no one at Georgia is acting like the star receiver won’t be able to play in the opener, or beyond.

But three days before the start of the season, head coach Mark Richt was still unable to answer directly that Green was set to play.

After Wednesday’s practice, Richt was asked directly if he expected Green to play.

“Who, A.J. Harmon?” Richt said, referring to a Bulldog offensive lineman.

“You know I can’t talk about that. It’s a good try though,” Richt said, laughing. “I just can’t talk. I don’t know the answer to anything, other than I’m not supposed to talk about the situation. And I really don’t know.”

The NCAA has still issued no ruling on the agent probe. But two players known to be interviewed – North Carolina’s Marvin Austin and South Carolina’s Weslye Saunders – have been ruled out of their respective opening games. Each player’s school said it was not related to the agent probe.

For what it’s worth, when offensive coordinator Mike Bobo was asked earlier to list the receiver rotation, he mentioned Green first. a

Until the ruling comes out about the other players, the NCAA won't let AJ Green or anyone else talk about it...that simple. BUT.. they will have to come down with a judgement before the first game.

I suspect this comes down to AJ Green just simply providing information about a certain agent's actions... and how it may have pertained to that agents actions with other players at other schools.

I don't believe AJ was ever in any trouble. May have been offered something... but no wrongdoing, unlike other players at UNC, BAMA, etc

Wouldn't this be Sturdivant's 4th year and not his 5th? I thought he was a true frosh in 2007?
