If there is some sort of documentation through Facebook that Hawkins misrepresented himself to Green, that is different. That is proof that Green didn't know what he was doing -- beyond, of course, the original issue of selling the jersey in the first place. If there were ever an extenuating circumstance, you would think that would meet the definition. In that case, the NCAA should consider reducing Green's suspension to the two games he will miss.
