    Bear in mind that the Dead period doesn't end until midnight Thursday/Friday.

    He can have contact with players and recruits though, right?

    To what does an NCAA waiver refer?

  • Denmen185Denmen185 Posts: 6,406 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Yes, in fact to me that's a better sign than visiting coaches. Just enjoying the city and future teammates. Hope it's true - don't have premium service to see article

  • bmauldinbmauldin Posts: 4,777 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I'd say that is a strong sign indeed.

    Athens is a ways away from Kennesaw, why travel that far just to see the fight?

    Your exactly right, why indeed. He must have had a gooooooood reason.

    Snoop talking about these visits around that Fields makes is what made me finally realize Fields is at least a solid UGA lean.

    Schools could apply for a NCAA waiver to have recruits visit as early as August 23. Evidently UGA applied and was granted said waiver.

    Read on another board that You can apply for a waiver on the dead period due to the early signing period.

    Same article says Kirby had dinner with JF and his parents in Athens last night.

    Thanks. If CKS had dinner with Fields of Gold and Parents of Fields of Gold, that HAS to be signicant, right?

    Hope it's planning when he and others are committing NOT last ditch effort to change his mind before the Bama FSU game

    Fields' team loses one their biggest games of the year and the next day he and the family has a late evening dinner with Kirby.

    The news is either good or nerve wrenching; however, I don't think it's bad.

    Fields is either on board with UGA or, at the very least, seriously entertaining the idea of a commitment. Quite the mystery really.

    What does his team losing have to do with it? Not sure why that would affect his decision

    When I played high school football, a big loss was tough to take. I wouldn't want to travel the next day.

    A tough loss, a NCAA waiver and parents making a trip seem to be indicators of a pre-scheduled meeting with Kirby. I am curious as to why that meeting was scheduled.

    In fact, the Fields family met with Kirby at the soonest possible time considering he was preparing for Rome.

    If you find the loss irrelevant, ignore it.

    Note that I don't think the loss impacts his decision in any way.

    It is simply one of many factors as to why a meeting took place at the soonest time a NCAA waiver would allow.

    You may be correct, the loss may be meaningless. The meeting; however, was not.

    I agree it was meaningful. The question is in what context. I think Kirby may not have wanted Justin and/or his family going to the MB Stadium without having personally spoken with him "face to face" for a month.

    Do think JF is still undecided?
