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.
So does the older generation not know how to read then, I wrote, "If he had told them a month ago and he might have for all I know it would have been nothing but a distraction"...if you get he told them a month ago from that then you need to take a reading comprehension class. I have no idea when he told them or if he told them and have asked someone to provide a source and your not a reliable one since you also said he is likely headed to Coastal...I do not assume anything and have only reported what has been reported from journalists, I have blamed no one, made no excuses and only said the kid is moving closer to home to be close to his ailing mother according to numerous news outlets and the school has yet to publicly address the situation I assume out of respect for Christian, but you go ahead and tell us how smart you are and how much you know as I have said I only know what has been reported!

I'm hardly the younger generation as I use to sit and eat dinner with Coach Felton as a kid and play ball with Brent Price, Troy McCoy, Joe Rhett, Barry Manning, Terry Dozier, Sterling Sharpe, Robert Brooks, Ryan Bethea and my favorites Jo Jo English and Norman Floyd. As I type this I'm looking at an autograph picture of the Coach and the 87-88 team from the Gamecock room in the old Peddler Steak House in Five Points as well as an autographed picture from Coach Felton out of the old Five Points Café and an autograph football from Crazy Zac's, but you the man!

That came straight from someone who played collegiate baseball.. Pitchers don't do shit.. That's why half of them are over weight. They might jog here and there at the most.

As for the bolded part I agree. were talking about someone whos going from football to baseball and prefers his ganja rolled in swisher sweets.

Though we only have a few returning CB's I feel confident with the knowledge that we cross train our secondary and we have quite a few members of the secondary with experience returning as well as LB's to ease the transition for the new CB's whomever steps up...we learned first hand the last 2 years every game is important and the SR class is going to be very hungry next year, it starts with the preparation to beat some Badgers....

I really hate to be disrespectful of this upstanding gentleman, but did I miss the game where this guy looked like a competent cornerback?

Regardless of whether he handled this well or not, I really just fail to see how any other John Doe we plug into that position could be much worse.

I agree wholeheartedly. Not bashing this guy, but if we can't find someone to replace him then we have some real depth issues.

I think it's safe to say that Mark Richt has lost control of the fallout from Marquis North's catch over Ahmed Christian to put UT in position to pull off the upset.

We all saw this coming after the Baylor game with Texas. Nick Saban certainly knows what it takes to win ball games while wearing socks, so I guess Christian knows too.

When you see something like this happen all you can do is remember what ole unmeaty tole ya that day in the forest: "stop stepping on my feet when you walk".

Confirmed for splinters.

Perhaps, but the coaches played him more than any other non starter at CB.....what exactly does that say. The problem is we only remember the not-so-good plays because all the other ones he had done well.

the georgia play was a blown coverage/bad call that wasnt necessarily his fault. after the game everyone wanted to blame gurley and spurrier made a point afterwards to say it wasnt his fault and ward ended up taking responsibility for them catching us in the wrong defense.

all corners get beat, his coverage was solid last season and he had potential to be a quality player here. thats moot since hes gone, now we gotta hope we can find the quality and depth to offset his loss.

THIS. Seriously. The kid was young and was absolutely improving. He got beat bad a few times, yep. But those weren't all solely on him. It definitely sets us back that he is leaving

You don't hate to be disrespectful or you would not have posted this crap! Christian played in every game this year, so name 3 terrible plays that he showed incompetence at CB. No disrespect to you but if the coaches regarded him as the 3rd best corner on the team then for you to say any John Doe could take his place is idiotic!

Regardless of anyone's opinion on his play this year, the coaches had him as our nickelback and 3rd best CB on the team. And the only returning CB next year that had any significant playing time and he is now leaving.

We're razor thin at CB and his leaving hurts.

Oh, you caught me.

I think people are a little too sensitive about how their comments are perceived on a computer about an arrogant football player who is having his education paid for through playing a game.
