    Well, anytime a starter transfers his senior year, its an oddity. I don't recall that ever happening before. And Bama 'places' kids that aren't good enough to play for them... that's totally different than the way we are losing actual contributors, much less starters.

    We really haven't lost any contributors yet except Tyler Murphy and he poss. Would have been a back up again. No one else who transferred contributed, that was most of their reasons for transferring, to get on the field.

    ^^^ Silberman was a contributor. Not a great player, but he played quite a bit and would have done so this upcoming season as well.

    Touché but to what affect did he have and would it be able to be replaced by 2nd year guys like rod Johnson or Octavius Jackson? Or even in coming guys like sharpe, JUCO drew Sarvory , E.E Nolan Kelleher or prince if we get him.

    Again, its abnormal to have ONE contributor transfer their senior season... we've had 4 that I can think of off the top of my head... Patchan, Silberman, Murphy, & now Riggs. That's just not normal.

    I'm not insinuating it's Muschamp's fault or anything else, I'm just saying its very irregular.

    I won't blame Muschamp for Patchan or Murphy. Both are understandable in many respects--Patchan was snakebit with injuries when he was here and was taking up a scholarship that could be used by someone else. Many programs would have "cut" him awhile ago--but I'm glad things worked out for him with a change of scenery. Murphy was likely going to be second-string when Driskel got back and, considering he'd shown the ability to compete in this past season, it's understandable he'd want to play in his senior year.

    Silberman and Riggs are questionable. As you said, it's irregular for it to happen once--but twice in the same offseason is wandering into the ridiculous. Both were regular contributors, if not starters, when they were here--and both were in-line for serious minutes this fall, particularly Riggs. I understand that both players had their limitations and likely would have seen their minutes eaten into by incoming talent at their respective positions...but all the more reason for Muschamp to step in and articulate exactly why they are needed here: for their leadership and experience.

    Maybe he did, maybe he didn't. He was very likely direct and honest with them--saying that all positions are open and it was likely that the incoming guys would get minutes and heavy looks this spring/summer. Which is all fine and dandy--but when you're losing guys that were being counted on for next year; it begs the question of why this is occurring.

    Agree on Patchan and Murphy. Although if our QB competition had been open as far back as 2011, I think we could have seen a different outcome for Murphy. Will be interesting to see how he does at BC.

    IDK what's up with Riggs. He was going to play a lot this fall I would think.

    Silberman OTOH, probably wasn't going to unless we had another massive injury problem. As far as I could tell, anyway.

    Somewhere somebody on this forum is blaming Cody Riggs' transfer on Urban Meyer.
