    Not making excuses for Thompson, but I have serious concerns about our S&T coaches given the number of players who have had lengthy if not career ending injuries over the last three or four seasons. Now it seems that a few of them are emerging as starters at other programs. Matt Patchan comes to mind. The kid was a beast the moment he stepped on the field as a freshman and barely stepped on the field after that only to transfer to Boston College as a starter four years later.

    Yeah, but we've had different S&T coaches during that time frame. Patchan was constantly injured with both Marotti and Dillman as the S&T coaches. Yet neither of those guys seemed to be cursed with the slew of injured players before and in Marotti's case after, coaching here.

    I think Patchan was just a fluke. He tore his acl once I think, but that was before Dillman I'm can't remember all his other injuries but 2 of them were getting shot and a scooter crash, which certainly weren't coaching related. Now if you want to discuss our players ever being allowed to ride a scooter...

    Agree on Patchan.

    And not sure how Thompson's recurring foot problems are S&C related, unless they're just not giving it enough time to heal.

    Scooters are minions of Vince Dooley.

    Well, even if he did fully recover from the foot injury, I doubt he would have played much this season. McGee is the starter and the coaches are looking to groom Lewis as his eventual replacement

    What sort of foot injury does he have that ends his career? Seems bizarre for someone that young to have a career ending foot injury.

    Probably not career ending, but could be serious enough to change the way he plays the position. Maybe the injury prevents him from pivoting on that foot. He may be able to still block on the line and go out for some short throws, but its possible the foot injury keeps him from developing into a serious receiving threat.

    They should be MD, PT and ATC related. In that order.

    Now he appears to be transferring to Penn State? So...he's too injured to play here, but can play at PSU?

    Too bad he was never healthy enough to take advantage of a wide open opportunity here.

    I wish him luck, though.

    Goolsby is going to make a lot of Gator fans happy imo.

    McGee will be a huge player for us in 2014.
