Georgia receiver A.J. Green may have thought it would solve a few financial issues at the time.
He’s regretting it now.
“I want to apologize to my coaches, teammates and the Georgia fans for the mistake in judgment,” he said. “I very much regret all that has taken place and the distraction that’s been caused. I’ve learned a valuable lesson and hope others can learn from my mistake. I can only focus my attention now on practicing and looking ahead to getting back with my teammates as quickly as possible.”
Ironically, it was the sale of SEC Championship rings by members of the 2002 Bulldogs’ squad that caused the NCAA to institute its regulation against players selling such items.
