The freshmen are unproven, but i think some of you are gonna be surprised when they get on the field.

I think we've got a lot of talent at receiver. We just haven't seen any of it yet. I guess we'll see how fast they can get up to game speed.

Pound the rock and play action. I hate losing Jackie but dang we are still pretty talented. Swap MH for Jackie. We can still put two guys that can blaze and a possession guy out there along with a TE that may be playing on Sundays.

What the Heck!!!
I know it's none of our business, but what the heck?!?! Just out of the blue is crazy.
And someone mentioned the reaction of the other players on twitter. So what have they been saying or tweeting. Since you brought it up, whats the word?[/align]

I haven't seen any badmouthing from the players, but everyone is in shock and posting their support for Jackie in a "keep your head up" way.

Losing a pre-season all-conference player is a big deal.

IDK anything but I think the "swap" as u put it already happened and may have played a part. I am pretty upset. I love Jackie. He has been a major contributor and to have such a seemingly sudden development like this is really upsetting. What could have put McGee in such a position to have to do this? IDK.

We aren't lacking in offensive playmakers. Jackie Williams is talented and I hate it happened but UAB will be fine on offense.

Whether or not we improve defensively this season will determine whether this season is a bowl season or not.

That's not the point to me at all. This kid played a lot and was preseason all conference. What could have been so bad as to just kick him off the team? For those of us that have spent time around Jackie, this seems strange.

It really sucks to lose a guy like this, especially just a month away from the start of the season. I think this is a huge loss, maybe big enough to cost us a game.

RE: Jackie Williams is gone
I know nothing about the Williams situation, but I recall something Gary Parrish said once on his radio show. He said that when a player is dismissed for undisclosed reason or for breaking team rules, often it means a failed drug test. They usually aren't dismissed after the first failed drug test either.

Again, I am not implying anything about Williams. Just what Parrish said is usually what is meant by "undisclosed reasons"

Unless you play for Memphis, that is usually not what "dismissal from the team" means.

RE: Jackie Williams is gone
We kind of expected defenses to load the box and force Brown/Perry beat them. This pretty much solidifies that.

It ain't like we don't have a lot of talented receivers. We just don't know exactly what we have.

Not saying it is this, but in the past his twitter account could be quite vulgar.

I haven't seen it in a while, but maybe McGee decided to clean up some stuff & the rules were laid out & not followed.

+1.

And MB, I don't think for a second that it has anything to do with drugs. It is completely unfair to even imply that.
Daniel white was let back on the team and he did fail multiple tests. Others have too. I really don't think that's why. Ill admit I was wrong if I turn out to be but meanwhile I'll give Jackie the benefit of the doubt.

RE: Jackie Williams is gone
Rather than speculate about what happened to cause his dismissal, I'm wondering about what we do now. Quarterbacks tend to have a security blanket receiver, a guy they go to when they NEED a play. That guy has been Jackie. Who's going to be the guy now?

Smith, Vinson, Humphrey, and Reaves the younger are all at least a year removed from high school ball, but none of them has played a down in at least a year. Nelson's crazy fast, but he's too tiny to take that kind of beating. Backman is built like an NFL tight end. Maybe this is the year he pulls it together.
