Jerry Howard will graduate this semester and then transfer out. Would not have counted against the 85 next season.

In fairness he is clearly talking about the current regime. Here's to hoping Jalen Camp gets drafted a few rounds ahead of Shi Smith. But what does this quote even mean?

“I wanted to come somewhere to get me to the NFL. I always knew the SEC would be the route for me whether it be coming out of high school or at Georgia Tech,” Brown told reporters Thursday.
Was he always planning to transfer to a SEC school? Looks like he had a couple of SEC offers out of high school including Bama; so it doesn't make sense to me.

This quote looks like a real shot at our staff, probably wasn't intended to be but still:

“Coach Beamer, from the jump, is a genuine guy. Him coming from Oklahoma and the things he has done at Oklahoma. He is an offensive minded coach and the things he can do for me and things I can do for him. It was a great fit.”
I could see him feeling under utilized last year because several of us were wondering what happened to him.

He shows offers from Bama and Kentucky but I highly, highly doubt he was a take for Bama. He had initially committed to Maryland. Meh. If he shows he is as good as he thinks he is over there, more power to him.

He’s butthurt that his production fell off after his first year. As a freshman, he was our top receiver. As a sophomore, not only had we added other serviceable slot receivers, we had a running back who was a better receiver than him. I hope he does well, but I’m not sad he left. He is a small guy that can’t make people miss in space.

And we had an offense and QB that did more than throw deep balls for him to run by people. If he makes us miss him, good for him, but we'll see.

14 touchdown passes, 13 interceptions. :bfd: It was better than FSU or Duke; but nothing to brag about. If we had a WR who could run by people we should have been taking advantage of it.

Agree. His current still set is running a go route and out running a corner. If he makes the NFL, I think it’s going to be on a practice squad.

Still a substantially improved offense by any measure. Maybe teams took that one play away last year. I doubt he was open and we just refused to throw it to him.

Our offensive efficiency index climbed to 92nd up from 100th the year before according to Football Outsiders, so I guess it depends your definition of "substantially improved". I don't see it that hard to believe we would've missed an open receiver last year.

Hold up on blasting AB. Someone from the Swarm caught this. The posted article is fake news.

See true quote in this article.


Read the differences of the quotes between these two articles. The entire meaning of his quote was butchered - on purpose it seems to play up the whole SEC is better nonsense.

It sounds like he’s upset his production fell off and he has a hard on for the SEC. Whatever... I enjoyed him as a freshman when there was little else to be excited about.

He made hay while teams loaded the box against us in 2018. He didn't do a great job getting separation once teams started keying on him. He has elite speed but hasn't matched it with routes or hands and he's very small to be going over the middle. SC wasn't his first choice when he transferred but it's where he landed.

AB is a really good player. Hated to see him go.
I don’t actually think he is. I think he’s a one trick pony and when we asked him to be
complete receiver last season he couldn’t do it. Interested to see howhe develops from here.

You must be worried about Collins ability to identify talent then.
