You have your opinion I have mine. I can tell you the Staff was not happy the way this was handled. If your cool with it good for you.

No telling how long the coaches have known it was going to happen. If he left two days before the bowl, then yes, that would suck. But the coaches will have had three weeks to coach up the next guy and right now is a very important time on the recruiting trail.

The coaches didn't know anything until he announced it.....they deserved better than that.

lol posters on here knew before it was announced.

Hopefully the coaches were at least a little bit more aware than that?

Christian was drafted out of high school and how do you know when the coaches knew he might be or would be transferring?

It has been reported the coaches didn't know anything until it was announced.

If he was drafted out of high school, why couldn't he make our team.

So should you if you did not know he was drafted out of high school, amazing you know when the coaches knew he might or would transfer but did not know he was drafted by the Brewers out of high school... Not one article or site that I have visited concerning his transfer mentioned the coaches knowledge except to say the school has not publicly addressed his situation with the team.

You also do not know that he did make our team, unless another Ahmad Christian had 6 at bats last year.

Sophomore cornerback who gained valuable experience last fall... listed with the second-team unit entering the fall...
did not participate in the spring as he is also a member of the South Carolina baseball team...
selected in the 46th round of the MLB Draft by the Milwaukee Brewers... may play both football and baseball at SC...

You can google it yourself and read the articles or continue to be classless and show us proof the coaches did not know until he tweeted it or continue to post out your a$$...

Yeah, well he probably wasn't happy with the coaches either otherwise he'd probably not be trying something else. So it goes. It's the nature of the beast. You just can't please everyone. Let it go.

Ok great, he was drafted out of high school and he made the team. There have also been reports about Holbrook saying it was not likely that he would see considerable playing time on the baseball team this year. Everyone was pushing him to spend most of his time on football. He is a terrific athlete and had a bright future playing CB for us, probably including starting in 2014. What I took issue with your statement was that he, according to numerous sources, did not give the football coaches notice that he intended on leaving. I am not questioning his statements about taking care of his Mother.....that is very admirable of him. But if that's the case, why not tell the coaches about his desire to leave a month ago to allow them to prepare for the final part of the season. Not one coach would ever criticize him or not encourage him to do what he felt was best for his family. But just to drop this on them the day he announced his intentions to leave showed a serious lack of respect for his coaches and teammates and a lack of maturity. I wish him the best wherever he ends up.

Serious lack of respect and maturity? I don't know about that, seems like minor breach of etiquette to me. When he made the decision he probably got excited about it and wanted to tell people and didn't want to bother the coaches right way. I think some of y'all making a mountain out of a mole hill here.

I'd rather him leave now, than leave after the bowl game. All we need is another player not show up for the bowl by playing less than 100%.

Get the next guy in line and go from there.

You took issue with my statement, what statement? Numerous sources, what sources? If he had told them a month ago and he might have for all I know it would have been nothing but a distraction, it is weeks before the bowl game, what could they have done with another few weeks to prepare? I get your point concerning the timing but without all he facts as it is clear we do not have them all considering the rumors and innuendo floating around about the reason he is leaving and his final destination the same could be said for those jumping to conclusions, putting words in Christians, the coaches and his teammates mouths.

No he didn't tell them a month ago. The Staff member I spoke to very much confirmed they were all caught off guard. Why some of you need to continue to make excuses for a situation that was handled piss poor by the player is beyond me but that seems to be the way of the new generation. Always someone elses fault or always someone else to blame. We will move on and yes its his life and choice but that certainly doesn't mean the situation was handled properly.

Sucks to lose him but smart on his part to focus on one sport, even if it's not at SC.

I still wish the coaches had given him a longer look at punt returner this season. Impressive return skills based on his HS highlights.
