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.

So exactly what time are we supposed to hear about the results of the hearing? It's going on 7 now.
Well AJs suspension has been upheld by NCAA. Story here:
Stupid ruling by NCAA
This part pisses me off the most:
Alabama end Marcell Dareus, the defensive MVP of last season's national title game, received a two-game suspension for receiving preferential treatment and agent benefits, including airfare, lodging, meals and transportation during a pair of Miami trips.
Such bullshit. I GAURANTEE that this dudes airfare, lodging, meals and transportation was WELL over $1,000 and he only gets two games? What kind of bullshit is that?! I hate favoritism with a passion.
