    With all these 5 star transfers we should be challenging for the SEC. Oh, yeah, we are!
    I wonder if this Will affect Gamble, Zip and the other TEs(transfer wise)?

    Good question since we have him for two years. But he may take away snaps from both WR and TE, so maybe the other TEs get enough snaps to make it worth sticking around.

    Will probably affect Gamble more than Zip. Gamble laid a huge egg during the bowl game.

    I don’t think he’ll be eligible until 2022:

    A couple folks have told them previously in the thread but there seems to be an insistence that it’s not correct.

    I’m not sure boss. It’s looks like it’s heading that way for sure but what the time frame is I couldn’t say. This coming year is for sure though. They need to go ahead and decide on a rule and implement it so there’s not so much confusion

    I am not sure about that, the transfer rule was waived for this year, 2020-2021, I do not believe it has been waived for next year, 2021-2022.

    Also, from another thread:

    LSU football loses Arik Gilbert to Florida

    The SEC apparently still has its own intra-conference transfer rule that has not been waived for 2021-2022.

    Sorry but next year as in this fall or next year as in 2022? Not trying to be an ass just too much conflicting information.

    And why is that? Some folks are just determined to prove that Gilbert and Bowman are not eligible to play this year. I don't think they played in 2020, so why would they need to sitout this year?

    Yep...the original Gambler Kenny Rogers caught one less pass than our Gambler....and he is 6 feet down. Plus he dropped a bunch less.

    Gilbert played 8 games and bow played 1 but I agree I think it’s all moot because of the Covid blanket waiver unless I’ve misunderstood what I’ve read in other places

    Gilbert played. Bowman didn't.
