I agree he shouldn't be like that to Ahmad.
But isn't he from Jacksonville, FL? (Or did he move?)

If that's the case Cola is closer


Good luck to the young man.

Cola is closer to Jacksonville than Conway is.

No he is not transferring to Coastal according to him he has decided to move somewhere closer to home to be closer to his ailing mother, do not think the destination has been determined at this point according to the report I read this morning and the talking heads on the radio.

I was more disturbed about Clowney stunting instead of his signature fly around the corner and force the qb to step up into Quarles waiting arms. Clowney didn't do squat on the stunts this year.

Good to luck to Ahmad handling what he's got to handle. Dealing with ailing family members is rough.

Default Re: Ahmad Christian is Transferring

If it's true Ahmad's got a sick mom to look after then that's completely understandable and way to make me feel like a reactionary asshole. But I'm not losing anybody's money over calling how I see it. This ain't Wall Street.

However, basically saying "Imma flex $240 mil in the Bigs - peace football teammates coaches and fans!" isn't something a committed Gamecock would drop on you, especially via twitter. That comes across as just waving big numbers around on the internet to get his followers' (see: girls) attention while throwing Carolina on the backburner.

I stand by my opinion that his body of work was subpar if not detrimental at times. He was good for the UT season-derailer, 2 UGA touchdowns, including the one to Scott-Wesley that put them up 41 to 30 IIRC. I understand he's a young player, but those are the raw painful facts. Bottom line is they made the plays and he didn't. The dreadful offense is what cost us most in Knoxville though, so it's not all on Christian.

Also, if he isn't transferring to Coastal, why bail before the bowl game? Again it comes off as uncommitted.

I hope you can understand my anger when news breaks that a player who had big plays dropped on his side in both our two losses has decided to quit the team before the last game of the season. I am emotionally reserved in almost every aspect of my life except for Carolina football, and by God I could have kicked a hole through a Guantanamo wall on that Tennessee afternoon.

I still blame conservative, predictable offensive play-calling for that loss. We only need 1 stinking first down to win that game, so we try to run for it twice when they defense knows we are likely to do that to eat up clock. So then, we get in third and long obvious passing down that they were ready for and not convert. Face it, was a complete team loss.

this would have been a perfect time to throw to a TE....the only problem I had with this year's passing game is that the TE's didn't get nearly enough catches for my liking not with the talent we had at the position.

If this is the reason he is leaving then yes he is doing the right thing however, why the text about baseball? He appears to think he has better shot at big money with it and not football but unfortunately for him our school has the top program in college baseball and this years team is loaded top to bottom with talent.

he was just comment on Robinson Cano's ridiculous contract. Baseball is the way to go if you could make it in both. It is guaranteed contracts not like NFL where you are screwed if you get cut.

Is he planning on going pro? Because, though he is young, he is not looking like a NFL prospect. At least in baseball he has a decent chance at a career in the minors. Spring is coming, might as well start prepping to play while takes care of his mom.

I find this entire transfer strange. If he doesn't want to be a Gamecock, then just say you don't. Stop sugar coating everything.

Has anyone stopped to think that by him leaving now, it's gives the coaches that much more valuable time to find another recruit?

I wish him the best.

No by him leaving now, it gives us no ample time to do anything but realize we lost a player in the bowl game.
