I still have some Hahira beachfront property that I can give you a swell deal on.
Last Friday Chris Hawkins, who purchased A.J. Green’s jersey, leading to the receiver’s four-game suspension, said he never spoke to the NCAA about the case. Hawkins, who paid $1,000 for the jersey, said the NCAA “never really came to me.”
Stacey Osburn, the NCAA’s associate director for public and media relations, responded Monday.
“Actually, the NCAA contacted Chris Hawkins on several occasions to discuss the matter; however, he was not responsive or cooperative,” Osburn said in an e-mail. “He did not return the four different phone calls attempting to gather information. He also canceled a conference call with the NCAA and a member institution, and failed to join the conference call when it was rescheduled.”
That jersey looks killer on the wall, though, I must admit.
