No waiver for you!

I guess the NCAA has too much on its plate to fight with coaches right now.  Here’s the blah, blah, blah version of its Division I Council’s decision to table the proposal for a one-time transfer waiver until January of next year.

Here’s the tl;dr version.

So, what does that mean, in practical terms?  To start with, bad news for — you guessed it — the Portal Master™.

Barring some last minute fancy lawyering, that gap’s gonna have to wait another year to close.

I assume that means Cade Mays will have to sit a year in Knoxville, too.  Anything that weakens Florida and Tennessee is good news for Georgia.

  1. Cade Mays made a huge mistake by leaving Athens. He would have been penciled in as a starter and likely been looked at as one of the top guards in the draft if he had come out in 2021.

      Agreed and I’m hoping this is a blessing in disguise. He set an example that will hopefully discourage this in the future. Riding the bench in Knoxville is a sure way to be invisible to the NFL draft.

      Exactly. Really bad decision. I can only speculate that this is the Mays family’s way of giving Georgia the finger about what happened to his dad….wait……

    My heart breaks for Cade Mays and his dad’s severed pinky and his mother’s lack of consortium (aka the shocker).

    • Anytime I hear Cade Mays mentioned I cant help but think of poor Mrs. Mays and the sexual pinky. Well, that and Cade’s feet are too slow to play left tackle which should result in bad things happening to ut’s QB, and that’s OK.
      BTW, you handled yourself well yesterday even if you came off a little like an ex-marine…

        Hah, thanks! And that’s because there ain’t no thing as an ex-Marine. 😉

    Maybe the Portal Master should focus on graduate transfers. Also, how about that Gator rushing attack without Lingard. No manball in Hogtown. One dimensional thy name is Florida.

      Or, you know, maybe The Portal Master ™ should, you know, simply recruit better?🤷🏻‍♂️

      They are in really bad shape at RB, nobody committed in the last two cycles and nobody in this one. You hate to see it!

    In discussions of transfer waivers, it seems unfair to point out Cade Mays will have to sit this year. I can’t put my finger on exactly why, though.

    Now let’s not pick on the Mays’s. Why, they have more talent in their little fingers than the rest of us have in our whole… Oh wait, bad comparison.

    Cade gave us two good years, played hard and mean, and I thank him for it. I don’t blame him for wanting to go home and play with his brother. I am saddened that I won’t get to see him go against our DL this fall.

    Here’s praying Ben Cleveland excels in an online learning environment.

    The cynic in me is thinking they may foresee a mass exodus from PAC 12 schools, or at least the California schools, if they opt not to play this fall and everyone else does.

    Why would Mays sit out a year? His family got into a personal injury lawsuit with Georgia. He transferred to his home state U. That sure looks more compelling than some asshole standing up during a game and shouting “Put the n****r in” when Fields didn’t even hear it. Did the NCAA already rule on Mays and I just didn’t hear it?

      Because he should. He didnt graduate and doesnt have a reason worthy of it. Daddy suing UGA isnt 1/100 as compelling as a racist comment.
