Cody Riggs will play for Notre Dame next year.........
So why did he leave Florida?
He graduated UF and wanted to play cornerback for a shot at the NFL....he would not be playing corner at UF. It is a good move for him and ND will give him the exposure he needs. Smart business decision for him, I wish him well.
Would seem to make his grad school comment hold more water than some wanted to believe. I love UF, but that is probably an upgrade in those regards (of course, this depends entirely on the program).
Best of luck to him!
i prefer riggs' explanation over rogo's.
(i'm not saying there's no truth in the NFL CB theory, i just don't think it boils down that simply)
Good luck Cody!
Thanks! Nice find. I hadn't read Cody's side of the story until just now.
At least he still gets to play the clowns next season!
Not a huge difference but there is one. ND is ranked 27th and UF is ranked 36th. However getting degrees from two good universities does help his network like he mentioned.
Thanks for the link. No one would've guessed that was the reason. Good for Cody.
What a class act.
If you haven't, read the link.
Best of luck, Cody. Thanks for your efforts for the Gators.
Part of the transfer rule for players in his situation to be able to transfer is that the receiving school offers a Masters degree program not offered by the school the player is transferring from. Last I checked UF offered an MBA.
I was wondering how that was going to apply in this situation as well.
UF has five MBA concentrations. Maybe UF doesn't offer an MBA in his area of interest.
That's what I was thinking. I'm sure they just enroll into a concentration not offered and then take whatever classes they want after the season ends and eligibility is exhausted.
From the article--that is, from the article linked by Haddon, above (post #7).

As far as departures go, this is about as honorable a way to handle it as I can think of--and for about as honorable a reason, too.
All the best, Mr. Riggs.
I thought that as long as the player graduated and had eligibility left, he was good to go (that is, to play the next year). Am I mistaken here?
Can' say that I blame him, but it shows he's not a team guy. He left us, I wish him nothing.
