Per the AJC, Reggie “Dog” Ball is academically ineligible to play in the Gator Bowl. If that’s not the perfect capper to his illustrious college career, I don’t know what is.
It’s only fair to let the head coach that stayed in his corner through thick and thin have the last word. So here’s what Chan had to say about losing Reggie and starting defensive back Kenny Scott for the bowl game:
… Although this is a very, very bad ending to the careers of these two young men, we can’t forget the contributions they have made to the Georgia Tech program the last four years.
I never will, Chan. I promise.
He will be missed.
