    That's how it's done. Punch in the back and kick ' em while their down....... and then get the hell out of there before their pimp shows up.

    Oh! And don't forget the damn money.:)

    I know you may not be allowed to comment, but is there a reason he's transferring in his senior year, especially since he'd be a starter?

    I find it odd that no "official" news organization has mentioned this yet. Has anyone seen this from a credible source yet?

    Just a guess, but Cody probably wants to finish out current class work and get his degree first, before confirming, so he can transfer without sitting a year.

    To be honest, I wasn't told why, but I didn't ask either. I figured I'd let Cody tell his side of it.

    Losing 4 very good defensive backs is not ideal. Watkins, Riggs, Purifoy, and Roberson brought a lot to our secondary. Poole and Hargreaves have a lot on their plate in terms of leadership

    Jason Higdon is about as credible a source as you're going to get with something "unofficially announced" like this.

    I wish I wasn't too. There aren't many upper classmen on D. A leader needs to emerge.

    Fowler is poised to take easley ' s role a leader but something tells me that Jarrad davis may emerge as a leader on D too kind of like Bostic even though he's only a sophmore. He looked outstanding when he was in there.

    I'm hoping Ball, Orr, or M Taylor will step up and be a vocal leader.

    While it does kind of stink if indeed true, it actually makes sense if you think about it. He doesn't really project to be a safety at the next level, and while he's about two-three inches short of being a guaranteed top-50 pick at corner, that's likely where he'll play as a pro. I've heard people say that Riggs "doesn't have the hips to play corner", and that's absurd. He can flip his hips and turn and run with anybody. The problem is that Muschamp prefers bigger corners, and Riggs is pretty much stuck at a position he likely won't play as a pro...if he wants to get on the field next fall.

    So, we'll see how this ends up. I've always liked Cody Riggs. Very aggressive, surprisingly physical, and he's a pain in the ass to be matched up against. Hope he sticks it out.

    Zach Alboverdi (from the Gainesville Sun) said that there seems to be a transfer coming up that the coaching staff knows about and that Muschamp will likely announce it during his Signing Day Introducition press conference. Where there's smoke there's fire....

    I like bigger corners too. Big, fast. And athletic corners are trendy right now because of monsters like Calvin Johnson. Richard Sherman is kind of paving the way for big corners.

    ^^^^ Which is why I think Adoree ends up on the other side of the ball if he becomes a part of this class. He's listed at 5'10, but he looks at least an inch short of that listing.

    Riggs can run with any receiver in football, but he just doesn't have the length that this staff looks for to give them confidence in one-on-one situations on the outside. They like guys who go at least 6'0, although obviously Hargreaves is slightly shorter than that. But VH3 is possibly the most gifted corner returning in college football, so I'm sure they couldn't care less if he's "only" 5'11.

    With as much man coverage as we roll with defensively, bigger guys help on the outside. I definitely don't disagree with that concept.

    Something tells me quincy wilson is hugely being underrated. He 6'2 200 pounds and runs sub 4.5 40. He's a coaches son and most importantly he's ALL gator. Think he shows up big in the coming years.

    We know he shutdown lane every time they played and has played against some of the best players from south fla. Since most of the best try out for SFE 7 on 7 team that quincy dad coaches on.
