    Good luck to him, he knew he was not going to get the opportunity to be the "shutdown" corner at Florida with players like Hargreaves, and now Tabor. He made a good decision, and now playing at Notre Dame will get him exposure, and he can dominate that competition, by showing what playing in the SEC is all about. I loved his fearless style of play.

    I can't blame him to be honest, it's a business decision on his part. Good luck Cody.

    He gave the team a lot while he was here. The point of college is to prepare yourself for the future. If UF wasn't going to let him play corner, that was going to hurt his prospects as an NFL corner. If anything, it makes room for someone else to get early playing time.

    Riggs was and aways will be a Gator to me.

    UF is ranked well behind ND for their MBA program, but ND is way behind a handful of other great business schools on campuses with strong football programs, most notably Michigan, but also Cal, Texas, UCLA. Northwestern has made some noise recently and Kellogg probably has more specialties than almost anyone else.

    There's actually not a big difference between the two schools as I stated previously. I actually considered ND until deciding to stay home at UF.

    Honestly, I completely understand his motive here. But I gotta admit. It's going to suck if he lights it up next season. Watch him get 5 picks and a ton of return yards. Good luck, Cody! You'll always be a gator.
