    I guess this is an “if you can’t beat ‘em, take their players” move on the part of Bama. 🤣

    The portal and NIL are going to bring havoc to college football.

    I think JT left because he needs to go somewhere he is guaranteed to start next year… and that ain’t Georgia with a Natty winning QB1 and a QB room full of potential elite talent.

    Have to wonder was Burton angry at Kirby or UGA for some reason ? I mean I Know he has a right to go where he feels best for him. That’s not even a question. But Bama ??!!?? That’s like Wow, what’d the Dawgs do to you type thing ?? I don’t even vaguely get this move.Oh well it is what it is.

    College football as we once knew it is gone.

    Going forward this will be standard operating procedure.

    Years ago this would have been considered treason.

    Still, Jermaine might not want to come back to Georgia looking for employment when his playing days are over.

    That is, if he even has an NFL career.

    Someone will step up and replace him

    He might not even start there. He should not get a Natty ring.

    Kid can’t stay healthy.

    Can’t make the club if you’re in the tub.

    That's easy. Just look at the talent in the WR room and the new talent coming in. With Delp and Gilbert coming in, there's a real good chance you just witnessed his best season at UGA. I think he's reached the plateau of his potential and he knew it.

  • KudzuKudzu Posts: 100 ✭✭✭ Junior

    Wellllll, it’s still kinda treason 🤣 Any other program, best wishes. Not so much ‘Bama.

    What's done is done. A possible side benefit? I don’t think there will be ANY concern that those who remain at UGA from the 2021 team will have anything but massive further motivation when they next meet!

    It’s all about trying to go pro. Jameson Williams got beat by bama at Osu and transferred there. The tide lost Williams metchie and bolden to the draft. He can make there three deep and play in a pass first offense with a heisman trophy qb. This is just a business decision for kids these days

    This portal mess has to have stipulations put on it and very soon. One stipulation I would propose is if they transfer, they have to pay back the school they leave the number of years of scholarships they used up, or the school they transfer has to pay it.

  • SteelerDawgSteelerDawg Posts: 56 ✭✭✭ Junior

    He was never going to get enough touches in our offense. Too many playmakers in front of him and we still value a running game.

    Some of these comments are downright ridiculous. "adults" talking about these kids like they are criminals for doing what they think is best...
