NCAA: Todd Gurley Has to Sit Two More Games

Oh boy...

If you thought the Georgia natives were restless over the suspension of star RB Todd Gurley before, they are even less thrilled now.

The overlords at the NCAA announced Wednesday morning Gurley will have to sit for two more games, making his suspension a 4-game suspension.

He would be eligible to return November 15th against Auburn.

The NCAA said Gurley, who appeared to have been accepting money for autographs for the past two seasons, has to donate the approximately $3,000 he is said to have received to charity and complete 40 hours of community service.

The school (UGA) also announced immediately after the ruling that they would appeal the decision since Gurley has already sat for 2 games. The NCAA membership committee is supposed to take up the matter by the end of the week.

Which won't help the Dawgs before they play archival Florida....this week.

The NCAA says the suspension is consistent with their rules and it could have been worse had the University and Gurley not been as cooperative as they were.

In the meantime, the Bulldogs will no doubt continue relying on super freshman Nick Chubb who has filled in quite well for Gurley. Chubb has run for 345 yards and 2 TD's in Georgia's last two games.

Coming off a bye week and preparing to play Florida means you will probably see Chubb continue to carry the rock.
