    We need to remember that these are kids and they make mistakes. Imho the only unforgivable mistakes are abusing women and severe violence.

    He was not kicked off the team according to UGA insiders and a direct quote from the HC.

    What did you expect UGA to report? If they admit he was kicked off, he is a great candidate to get a waiver this season and play. No way UGA admits he got the boot.

    Tim Smith is a take no matter what and maybe Harris also.

    Dan Mullen said the Gators will definitely apply for a waiver for Brenton Cox and "feel good" about the possibility of him being able to play immediately. Won't provide specifics.

    Mullens says he recruited Cox while at Mississippi State but he didn’t give them much of a look; but they had some background. Says Cox felt it was a good fit for him here after he talked with players about system.

    This is a cheap shot article if I have ever read one. Obviously written by a UGA frat boy.

    Hey if UGA was such a great fit he would have stayed.

    Arrogant bunch up there in Athens.

    Legitimate points were made. He will shape up and do well or CDM has to handle it. This does not appear to be a kid that after a couple of clean and hard working seasons decided to transfer. I hope he bellies up and acts like a young man and not a distraction to the program. Hope his characterization of CDM are inaccurate.

    You might want to take that article with a GIANT grain of salt.

    You mean you hope it turns out I should have taken it with a GIANT grain of salt. Me too.

    Nah, I meant what I said. It’s usually a good idea to consider the source of an article, unless you were already predisposed to a negative take on the situation which seems to be a common thread around here.

    Was he having discipline problems? You have to hope it turns out like Gerals Willis, once a Gator now a cane. Sometimes people get it together.

    Dont really get all the drama about this.
    He left UGAy and he is here now .
    Dawgs need to move on.
    All the negative social/media surrounding one guy is a waste of time.

    No... we kicked out all the bad seeds on our team. And Dan Mullen has NOT lost control or failed to gain control of our team from the time that McElwain left our football team... in shambles.

    UGA sounds bitter. Cox wasn’t dismissed from the team and likely will be granted a waiver by the way CDM talks about it. This is the new normal in college football as the NCAA navigates this issue of not paying “student athletes.”
