Coach is going to have some work to do to keep the team focused. Downfall of Twitter is that you can see the negative reaction from the other players.

Normally, at least in the SEC, they appear in the news for illegal activity before a dismissal, this is hard to figure out.

I just saw him at Walmart a couple weeks ago decked out in Blazer garb.

RE: Champlin: UAB Player Dismissed
We are suddenly pretty unproven at receiver. I wonder if the move Jay Davis to that side of the ball.

Our second-leading receiver last year was Darrin Reaves. Some guys who didn't catch many passes last year are going to need to catch a lot of passes this year.

RE: Jackie Williams is gone
Jackie seems like a good kid, from reading through his twitter stuff. Doesn't seem like the type that would consistently break rules.

Something seems weird here. I also wasn't fired up by CGM's statement, "Jackie is a good kid and a good player, but what's best for our football program is that we part ways." He could have pinned it on team rules or something like that and no one would have batted an eyelash, but he didn't.

RE: Jackie Williams is gone
I liked McGee's comment. If it had to happen (and clearly he thought it did), then why give anyone fodder to impugn Williams with?

I'm disappointed as hell. I hope he graduates (if he hasn't already) and moves to the next phase of his life, whatever that entails. I thought pro ball was an option, and I suppose it still is.

We had a couple of guys sitting out last year that are pretty good in DJ and Nolen. I know Nolen is listed as a TE but he has been playing receiver.

i think we become more physical if the freshmen get more playing time anyways. The freshmen have a lot of size.

True. I like them both, but the last time either was on the field was in a Kim Helton offense.

Yeah, I guess you're right. Something just feels off about the whole thing. Never heard about problems from the kid before...seems weird to boot a kid off the team for a first offense.

I wonder w/ so little being said if it was failed drug tests & he was given chances to get back on track but didn't. WAG on my part
