Todd Gurley won’t likely be making any more Heisman poses in 2014 as the Georgia running back was suspended indefinitely Thursday for an alleged violation of NCAA rules.
What did Gurley do? It appears he was making some good money from memorabilia shysters. Here’s a ominous Reddit forum post from 12 days ago.
If you don’t have your reading glasses on, here’s what the poster wrote:
I did an AMA here and I mentioned that there was a high profile player that was a potential Heisman candidate that was going overboard with getting paid. The mods asked me not to mention any names so I kept their name private. They are definitely a Heisman candidate this year, 100%.
I said in there that I wouldn’t be surprised if something comes out on them before they reach the NFL.
Something is going to come out on them. With the way ESPN tears down people for a story, they are going to do the same thing they did with Manziel. He is having a ridiculous season and I have heard from a few people that they have been contacted by writers at ESPN trying to get someone to leak any information. I am almost positive one of the guys did.
If they go with the story, it will be on the front page of ESPN. Guaranteed.
And FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman had the earliest reputable Tweet on the matter:
