I’m sorry, I know how the game is played, but I still can’t help being amused by the staff’s diligence in getting Demetris Robertson eligible to contribute this season in light of Kirby’s hand wringing over player transfers.
Such coaches as Georgia’s Kirby Smart and Florida’s Dan Mullen worry the new rules could move the league closer to free agency if more freedoms to players are granted. They cringe at the idea players could be eventually empowered to seek transfers as soon as they drop on the depth chart or are asked to run extra laps.
“I’ve expressed my belief in a guy who graduates from college being able to go where he wants to go,” Smart said Tuesday at SEC Media Days. “I feel very strongly about that, but when you start talking about every year … I’ve got to be honest with you, it’s hard.”
Makes you wonder if he’s reflected on Robertson’s nature the way he did Stetson Bennett’s.
