Hampton apparently had a draft party. I am sure it got awkward quickly.

Well only one CB was drafted from that UF secondary that was one of the best in the country. I believe Vic will get signed though

what was awful about his combine. He ran 5.03 with 27 reps.....he seems to have a good personality, so I doubt it would have been his interviews. Wasn't he an All American.....he got a 2nd - 3rd round grade.......he isn't a good fit for a 3-4.......I really think it was the New York incident. What is surprising is that he never got into any trouble that I'm aware of, other than that. Remember NY lingered for a couple of weeks before they didn't charge him.

Unless you're going to get picked in the 1st 2 rounds, I think you should stay and get the free degeee. Then, if you don't make it, you can go get a good job and obtain experience. If you leave early and you don't make it, you've got no degree and you have to pay to come back and get it and you might not be motivated to do so, and you lose money farther up the road due to losing experience at your job.

I wish them both well. Thanks for all you did while you were here and really wish both of you had returned. Football isn't over so work hard and make the teams you sign with in whatever they need you to do.

When I think of kids staying for their senior year I think of the kid we had several years ago that played catcher for the baseball team and fullback. He turned down pretty good money in baseball to return for his senior year in football and disappered off the face of the earth. I think Quarles should have stayed. It would have been nice for Vic to stay but I think he just has too many issues. Its tough when the entire world is against you.

Which stirs up more questions....
-How many of that 44% were projected 1-2 rd guys?
-How many of them copped an attitude and thought "I need to go get me some of dat money?"
-How many of them that played in front of 80k + fans on Saturdays, and in turn got picked over for guys who played in front of 25k fans or less on Sats? (How many guys from Coastal got drafted?)

Sorry for the kid because he didnt get picked up and that is his dream, but the signs were all there. Not sure who told him he would go high, but it was obviously wrong. But he did get three free years and I am hoping an education.

I understand when you grow up dirt poor that the NFL money is very tempting to these young men. It's just sad that people who could have the most influence on them (family and friends) can't talk more sense into them. If they were sure first, second, or even third round picks than sure go get the money but anything after that is not worth another year of college and potentially moving up to those rounds. I hope nothing but the best for these young men and they will always be Gamecocks, hopefully they can make a roster somewhere.

Yea - I thought it was a pretty corny headline to begin with. Then, when you put it in perspective in relation to Hampton and Quarles, it makes it that much worse.
