Fox Learned Of Parks & Rec Issue Sunday

As we told you earlier today, a police investigation into the Columbus, Georgia Parks and Recreation Department uncovered money that had been spent on two local AAU stars.  Jarvis Jones is now on Georgia’s football team.  Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is now on Georgia’s basketball team.  And both now are having their amateur status questioned.

Bulldog basketball coach Mark Fox told The Athens Banner-Herald that he just learned of the situation yesterday:

“Obviously, we’ll cooperate with the process.  Really can’t speculate on what penalty there would be if there is one.”

Fox won’t speculate, but we will. 

Best case scenario: The two players are forced to repay the money that went toward airline tickets and a cell phone bill.  Jones would have to cough up $828.40.  Caldwell-Pope would have to give back $280.90.

Worst case scenario: Both players have their amateur status stripped and are banned from playing at UGA.

Our expectation: As long as nothing else is uncovered — and don’t think the NCAA won’t focus in on Jones and Caldwell-Pope going forward — both players will likely be given a multi-game suspension and forced to repay the cash.
