Georgia Bulldogs running back Todd Gurley could miss the remainder of the 2014 season after new information has leaked regarding his alleged NCAA violation.

Todd Gurley Could Miss Remainder Of Season

|

Just a few days after running back Todd Gurley was suspended indefinitely, news has broken- according to The Atlanta Journal Constitution – that the star tailback could miss the remainder of the season due to the violation of NCAA rules.  Reports stated that Gurley had been charging people anywhere between $8 and $25 per autograph, an obvious no-no for collegiate athletes.  The estimated total earned by Gurley was approximately $400 for the 80 autographs according to several media reports.

Chip Towers, the author of the aforementioned report, explained in his article that if a player receives between $100 and $400 they will only miss about ten percent of the team’s games, if the player earns between $400 and $700 they will be withheld from about 20 percent of the team’s games, and finally if the player receives any more than $700 they will be suspended for thirty percent of the games.

You may be thinking how Gurley would miss the remainder of the season, but there is a catch.  If there is a “significant” case built up against Gurley that is when further punishment would be laid down.  A person familiar with the investigation said there is being a “significant” case built up due to a substantial amount of evidence leaking from the Athens campus. Still, the amount of games to be missed remains a mystery and could range from just a few days to the remainder of the 2014 season..

Georgia will be without their star player tomorrow when the Bulldogs take on the Missouri Tigers in a huge game in regards to the SEC East.
