    The NCAA is weak, inconsistent, and subscribes to political correctness. Don't most of you (who like sports) wish thousands of fans were cheering for you, even yelling to put you in the game? Sounds like he was favored not discriminated against. Ridiculous ruling

    The football players take advantage of Hope (which technically isn't tax money I guess) and Pell grants, which is tax money.

    But your point is well taken. Just like coaches salaries, which are mostly funded by private donations, and Athletic Assoc. contracts like TV.

    Everything you listed is paid for by the Athletic Assoc. as a private corporation.

    Word on the street is that he honestly thought he was going to beat out the QB who came within 15 seconds of winning the National Championship. See above about spoonfeeding.

    Rumor is that his ground for appeal to waive the sit out is that he was "misled" by the Georgia coaches about his playing opportunities.

    "Now that this matter is concluded, I would like to clarify some facts. I have no regrets about my time at UGA and have no hard feelings for the school or football program. My overall experience at UGA was fully consistent with UGA’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. My sister is a softball player at UGA. I am still close friends with many of my UGA teammates. A part of me will always be a Georgia Bulldogs fan."
