    He'll end up at a Div 2 school. I don't see a AD at a name school touching him, although I'm a believer in second chances

    I wonder if you get kicked off of a team and enter the portal if you get an automatic waiver.

    As far as transferring to another SEC school such as the Barn it is my understanding that is not allowed if you are kicked out for domestic violence. But I certainly could be wrong about that.

    I am conflicted to how I feel about how domestic violence issues should be handled with regards to transferring but I lean towards at least a one year suspension from playing in a Power 5 conference and the ability to return to a power 5 after the probationary period. With J J being a senior, obviously this would not apply to him. But, he is probably on the NFL radar anyway and I feel certainly he, or any other senior would be given a shot at the pros with no further incidents. If you can play, the NFL will find you.

    IM BY NO MEANS JUSTIFYING HIS BEHAVIOR.... and fundamentally believe he cannot represent UGA on the field after making the choices he made and striking her, but does anyone else see what I see?

    I see a vicious trend of victims who are allegedly exposed to various forms of abuse reporting their grievances WAY, waaaaaaaaaaaaay after the fact. I mean - I get that it’s private and victims can be shamed in cases of sexual misconduct, but part of me really questions the character/intentions of a person who’d wait a year(or decades in many cases) to go to the police.

    I think if one is abused then it should be reported as soon as possible after it occurs. I believe someone should either choose to report it within a reasonable time frame (although I won’t pretend to know what those timeframes would appropriately be) or choose to deal with it another way.

    However, I don’t believe that victims should have the power to retroactively tarnish another persons reputation when it becomes more advantageous to them to do so. Nor do I believe any human being is perfect and should have mistakes made in the past held over their head indefinitely by a victim.

    All said, I hope that JJ owns his choices, realizes he was in the wrong, and is given a chance to learn from this and move on towards success. Georgia will miss him this year. Best of luck to him and the victim.

    In no way do I condone offensive violence against women, and I have no idea why the alleged victim in this case would wait over a year to file the report while declining to press criminal charges, and I will not speculate. What is known, however, is that this will cost Mr. Holloman dearly. He loses the chance to be the go-to receiver that a championship-contending UGA looks for and the chance to develop further and enhance his reputation and NFL draft position, including the compensation that goes with it. The NFL has shown the willingness to sit down its stars when confronted with evidence of domestic violence, and the owners have shown a willingness to devalue an incoming draftee to the tune of millions by drafting them lower and lower, if at all. It seems to me that this could not be about a payday, because that train has now departed. I feel for all involved, but actions have consequences. UGA will be fine, and I hope both JJ and the alleged victim can find healing and success in future endeavors. Go Dawgs!

    Something I don't understand.. if you're no longer part of a team, why the need to enter the transfer portal? Should be like recruiting a HS player that has no ties to a college team. No longer under a scholarship at a college, should be able to pick any school he chooses. IF, a team is willing to take a chance on someone with an incident as serious as this on their record.. any thoughts or possible answers?
  • rtparkerivrtparkeriv Posts: 82 ✭✭✭ Junior

    He should go to a smaller school where he doesn't have to sit out a year and focus on getting things back on track. That will give him a chance at the NFL in next year's draft.

  • 1SICemDAWGS11SICemDAWGS1 Posts: 1,570 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate
    The only reasoning I can see, by entering the transfer portal, he gets his name out there for other schools to see, that may not know of his dismissal. But, with media, and social media, that's an almost impossible chance they couldn't know of this dismissal.

    Makes me wonder, when the girl waits over a year to file a report, and then doesn't want to press charges?

    Either way, Holloman admitted to doing some of what she said he did. I hope he can find the right environment and everything works out for the best.
