IF IT FEELS GOOD,YOU AIN'T DOING IT RIGHT!
Vince Lombardi was asked how it felt to have the best football team in the world. He replied, I don't know. We haven't played Alabama yet.
Ok, maybe I'm ignorant, or naive, or both, but how does this happen to a player of his significance at a major program like UGA? How does the player's grades get to the point where he is ineligible? How do the coaches not know that his grades are bad enough ahead of time to keep him from being ineligible? If the kid isn't performing in the classroom--getting necessary grades on tests, turning in assignments on time, attendance, etc.--I think the staff is as much to blame as the player. This should never be an issue. Do coaches, academic advisors, tutors, etc. not get weekly/bi-weekly progress reports on the players to know if this could be an issue? Is there no follow up by someone, somewhere? I'd be highly ticked off if this happened to one of our major players. To me, this is completely unacceptable. Am I wrong?

So he flunked out and got owned by a one legged undersized (according to SECCG commentators anyway) Barrett Jones all in the space of a few weeks? That should do loads for his NFL prospects. ;-)
