Sad for Nadab. Opens another spot for a grad transfer.

Hit the books if you want to qualify. Just saying.

    Shucks. I thought he was undervalued.

    Word on the street is that Cook lacks a course to enroll. If we're lucky, we might get him qualified late this month or in July.

    Irresponsible comment at best. Read the article. The young man was homeschooled and transferred during HS. A lot of his credits likely didn’t qualify or transfer over to his last school.

    What? No, it's easier to read a headline and assume you know everything about the subject of said headline.

    Had nothing to do with studying. He was home schooled and then transferred high school a few times. It's course credit issues, not grades. Congratulations on making an ass of yourself.

    Really. If he applies himself in summer school, he will get the course he needs and will be eligible by July. If he doesn't, who knows? Might be JUCO for him, too. I hope for the best.

    There's a thread on Nadab over on SECRANT. It's on the UGA page. The situation with Cook is also discussed.

    Grades are grades. Test scores are test scores. Dude didn't do the work to qualify. Sentell said he'd be at Alabama if he did. UGA took a shot and missed. All those thumbs down seemed uninformed to me.

  • bmauldinbmauldin Posts: 2,876 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    I hope we can get him back after juco. Was as excited about him as I was Campbell.

    If that is the case then once he enrolled in HS the staff there and coaches let this kid down. They would have immediately known whether he would be able to qualify or not if he lacked that many classes from home schooling. If he didn't and didn't take care of his business at the new school, then that is on him. But either way either the adults at the new school or he himself dropped the ball. Plus if he didn't have the home schooling credits he wouldn't have actually been academically eligible to play in the new high school, so that really holds no water of classes not transferring.

    Its not being irresponsible when those are the facts. Quit making excuses for people that don't get the job done one way or another.

    It’s quite possible the coaches didn’t know. It’s quite possible that Nadab didn’t handle his business in the books. The point is we don’t know. What we do know, if you can read between the lines, is that Nadab had a lot of variability and potential instability in his life. Hence “the guardian”...rarely an ideal situation when a kid is raised by a guardian instead of their parents.

    When you don’t know facts, and generalizations are made like “hit the books”, it’s irresponsible.

    This really STINKS (I wanted to use another word here!) for all of the parties involved. I certainly hope that our beloved Bulldogs can bounce back from this (& other) roster management / scholarship challenges. Love the DAWGS!, FOR LIFE!!!

    There's no way the HS coaches didn't know his academic situation. Again once we moves around to schools in order to be eligible to play, they have to know his credit situation. There's no getting around that.

    Joseph was in Saban's pocket since last Summer until he finally went public on Dec 4. Then he flipped without any of the analysts having a scent of a clue that he was having 2nd thoughts? I would say this situation was not only well known, but that it probably was the reason he was available.
