Georgia Bulldogs OUT

Postby ScreamingWeasel » Tue Mar 11, 2003 6:43 am

Georgia suspended coach Jim Harrick with pay and withdrew from the SEC and NCAA tournaments Monday after an internal investigation showed three players took a phony class taught by his son.

University president Michael Adams said Monday it isn't clear whether Harrick eventually will be fired. However, sources told ESPN.com's Andy Katz that Harrick Sr. expects to be fired, but that it won't happen until the investigation is complete.

Georgia (No. 22 ESPN/USA Today, No. 21 AP) was a lock to receive a third straight invitation to the NCAA tourney, which would have been the longest such streak in school history.

It is a shame! I don't think they had much of a chance to win the NCAA, but it is a good team, that won't be back.

There is going to be more repurcussions than just missing this year's NCAA tournament. I have a feeling there is going to be scholarships cut, and no post season of any kind for at least a couple of years. It really does a lot of damage to a program. I know because Minnesota is just now getting out of hot water due to the whole Clem Haskins fiasco.

I have to agree with da rook...there will be more reprocussions comin for Geogia...This whole year has been rocked with scandals in the NCAA bball realm. I still can't get over Nova or the Bonnies...what were they thinking? and what are they teachin these kids?? they just let them up and quit? i always thought we were supposed to stand up and be tough when faced with adversity...not just take our ball and go home. that is just downright embarrassing for a school... :-t
