Former Georgia Tech wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is denying that he received improper benefits that cost the Yellow Jackets their 2009 Atlantic Coast Conference title.
The NCAA also put Tech on four years of probation last Thursday and fined the school $100,000 for violations that included problems in the men’s basketball program.
The NCAA said Tech should have declared the receiver ineligible after he accepted $312 worth of clothing from former Yellow Jackets quarterback Calvin Booker, who was working for a sports agent.
Thomas, now a Denver Broncos wide receiver said that while he was offered money, cars, shoes, clothing and a watch, he never accepted anything. He says he feels bad for what happened to Georgia Tech and his former teammates.
Joshua Nesbitt, the quarterback of the 2009 ACC Champion Yellow Jackets joined Rob and Dean for an exclusive interview to discuss the “Trouble on the Flats”.
