Todd Gurley’s status for Georgia game at Arkansas to be known by Friday


You can stop speculating about when Todd Gurley will know when (or if) his suspension is done. According to Georgia head coach Mark Richt, the disposition of Gurley’s case will be made known by the time the Bulldogs board the plane to Arkansas on Friday.

  • “By” Friday…

    That could mean tonight, tomorrow…anytime by Friday.

    “We’ll definitely know in plenty of time before we get on the plane,” Richt told reporters after Wednesday’s practice via “If we know he’s able to play, he’ll travel. If he’s not able, he won’t. He has been practicing and getting some reps.”

    Yes, Gurley has been practicing, which means that if he’s eligible to play against the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday, he’ll have had plenty of rest, but will not have become rusty.

    Georgia officials took a private plane to Indianapolis today to appear before the NCAA’s infractions committee on Thursday morning, regarding the case involving swimming and diving coach Jack Bauerle. It’s possible they could review Gurley’s case while there, but that isn’t known at this time.

    If Gurley is able to play this weekend against the Razorbacks, he still could resume what had been a season leading him to a possible Heisman Trophy, although having missed a week will damage his changes to an extent.

    More importantly, it would give Georgia a huge moral and physical boost against an opponent that will text the boundaries of both.

    UPDATE: Coach Richt has cleared up his original statement. The decision looks to still be known by Friday, but apparently Richt doesn’t expect Gurley to be eligible to play on Saturday.
