      Don't you think it's a little early to call him a failed QB?

      I don't think anyone expects him to sniff UF - UGA almost certainly wouldn't allow the transfer here anyway. This is more about laughing at UGA, something you used to enjoy before you took a **** on absolutely every topic.

        I’m pretty sure they can’t restrict where he transfers to. I believe that was part of a recent ncaa rule change

        All Dwags are failures.

          NCAA approves rule that ends coaches' ability to block transfers

          yes, but it appears that intraconference transfers can be blocked, depending on conference rules.

            You know all these Dual Threat QB's think they are passers who can run, instead of runners who can occasionally pass. I think Fields thought he was better than what he was. He is supposed to be accurate, but that doesn't mean he can make the reads.

              Why would a conference enforce a rule that forces a talented player to leave the conference?

                Because they don't want intra-conference transfers. If there weren't a rule, no one would need waivers. I think he will go to Penn State or something like that.

                He does have to sit out a year still.

                I don't even understand the fascination with these guys like Fields and Solomon. what are you really want someone who quits the team whenever their playing time decrease is somewhat? I get it if it's a player who really to go to UF but butters didn't offer.

                Obviously Kirby Bangschump is promising all these kids playing time in order to land them. Saban has never had to do that.

                That and I wonder what kind of ride he has now. Fields should have never went to Georgia knowing their situation if he wanted to start right away. He should have came to UF.

                I really feel for the kid. He picked the absolute worst place for him when you combine the depth chart, and
                how to utilize his skills. What makes it even worse is the kid could have gone literally anywhere in the country, and
                would be better off today for it. Not one member of the leghumper staff has experience with the development of
                a true dual threat QB. The Fields family was sold a bill of goods by bozo Smart and his 800 pound OC.

                  Plumlee is local. Good athlete. Not sure UGA ever intended for him to play QB. Thought he would have been a good second QB for us.

                    Always love it when local media holds negative stuff until it won’t affect their relationship with the team. Then it is perfectly acceptable to dump on him and release it.

                      Latest word is he is leaning towards Ohio State.
                      In unrelated news Urban is magically feeling better lol.

                        Not pining for another transfer but I’d happily accept him. Kid is legit and we’d go from a sh*tty qb room to an unbelievable one in just two years.

                          I blame this on the coach.

                          I think they promised to get him ready for the NFL by making him a pro style QB then of course turned around and used him as DT QB. Dan was straight up with him. I will teach you how to throw and make reads but you have to be a willing runner...and that was that.
