NCAA rules on Georgia running back
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — The NCAA has ruled that Georgia star running back Todd Gurley must sit out until Nov. 15 for accepting more than $3,000 for autographed memorabilia and other items over a two-year period. The school had applied for Gurley’s reinstatement after he missed the last two games while the school investigated allegations of improper benefits.
The NCAA says Gurley must serve a four-game suspension, or 30 percent of the season, for accepting cash from multiple individuals. He also must repay a portion of the money to a charity of his choice and complete 40 hours of community service in order to be reinstated for the Nov. 15 home game against No. 4 Auburn.
Georgia says it will appeal the ruling.
