Nothing to worry about? NCAA investigating Georgia over A.J. Green.

ESPN.com reports that the NCAA will conduct an inquiry at Georgia over whether or not star receiver A.J. Green was sharing a chips and salsa bowl with Alabama defensive lineman Marcel Dareus at an agent’s party in South Beach earlier this summer.

But chances are, its not going to find anything.

Green says he wasn’t at the party. In fact, he says he’s never even been to Miami and given his outstanding character, it isn’t hard to believe him.

But when probed on the subject at the SEC Media Day on Wednesday, UGA head coach Mark Richt took a more wait-and-see approach.

“I don’t know if it is [bad news] or not, quite frankly,” Richt said. “By the way you posed the question, you’re saying it’s never good news [when the NCAA investigates]. Then you’re saying it’s bad news. I don’t necessarily think it is bad news.

“I’m sure they’re gathering information, but we’ll see what they gather.”

Generally speaking, it’s never good when the NCAA is investigating a program but as Richt points out, just because they’re doing so it doesn’t mean that they’ll uncover something.

And given Green’s reputation for being a low-key kid, I’m willing to bet they won’t.
