    Like getting consistently beaten by superior defensive players at practice.

    Poor kid. He’s lost in life and his Dad can’t put a finger on the problem or point the way.

    Offense is better without him. Move on, Cade…the Dawgs certainly have.

    Eh, I put this on a reporter asking a question (again) and him just giving the rote answer. We whipped him pretty soundly so I’m good with how things have worked out.

    Why/How on earth did he ever come to UGA in the first place? Sam Pittman’s magical recruiting super powers might be the 8th wonder of the world.

      The Butch Jones regime was also in the final stages of melting down when he graduated.

      Apparently, Pittman’s personality and coaching techniques were an important reason for his attending UGA. He’s worn the Red Helmet, represented UGA well when he played, is a UGA letterman and really played hard for us. Pittman left so Mays left. Mays earned the right, while on the team, to be respected and all loyal UGA fans should respect that and stop knocking Cade Mays . He paid the price for UGA. And in the Tennessee game, seldom did he get knocked around, rather he performed quite well, especially in the second half. Go Dawgs!

        I’m not knocking Mays, if you are insinuating that I am. I am truly amazed that a kid with as much Orange DNA in his blood would ever come to UGA in the first place which is my point about how effective Pittman was in getting him to sign with Georgia.

        You might want to go back and watch the tape again. Anderson abused him on a speed rush that led to a strip sack. There were several other second half plays where he whiffed, too.

    In Cade’s defense If we didn’t put in these bullshit restrictions on transfering, kids wouldn’t need to hire some lawyer to concoct some bullshit case of hardship in order to do what any other student or employee in the country can do: leave their school or employer whenever they freaking feel like it, no justification needed.

      Ever heard of a non-compete clause? That’s all the rule has been for these transfers and they do exist in real life. I’m happy we’re getting a rule change moving forward, if for no other reason we won’t have to revisit the subject here any more. I guess until some player wants a freebie on a second transfer.

        Yeah if i leave my job to go to a competitor i get the pleasure of sitting on the sideline for 6 months. I have sympathy for the players who want to transfer but this idea that everyone else in America can do it freely is flawed.

        Actually yes, non competes are fairly common, especially for c suite executives in my line of work and they are HEAVILY negotiated documents with counsel representing the will be employee since they should be getting market value for waiving some right to take their very valuable services elsewhere. It’s definitely not a boiler plate document that completely benefits the employer / firm because all competing firms in said industry banded together to restrict employee negotiation. Since that would be like, illegal, if a for profit firm or industry did that. Which oh btw is why the schools are getting their ass kicked in anti trust court, because they want to benefits of being a monopsony (term for only one buyer in a market place), a tax exempt organization and a very lucrative college branded sports entertainment business all rolled into one

          Not to rain on your parade, but my non compete is a form i had to agree to in order to get paid. I was not able to negotiate a single letter of it. I’m not a c-suite executive but am highly compensated.

            Everything can be negotiated. ( unless you’re a college football player ). You need a better lawyer.

            I’m a well compensated salesperson and I’ve never signed a non-compete when it was presented to me. The simple truth is they are illegal in at-will employment states as a restraint of trade.

            When I got pushback (and I did), I always said I’d be willing to sign one in exchange for an employment agreement spelling out the parameters by which I could be relieved of my position and a buyout clause. Amazingly, the issue of the non-compete magically went away at that point.

    He made a really bad decision transferring to UT, a team that will be lucky to have a winning season this year. His bad play on this bad UT team likely will cost him in the NFL draft—if he gets drafted at all.

  13. I feel like someone (a journalist) is trying to get him to say something to hurt Georgia. Certainly Mays isn’t just offering this up on his own.

      That sounds spot on. I can’t imagine he just randomly opined about that the week after they came off their second straight ass kicking — the second proving that have about as much mental fortitude as their athletic director at a Shoney’s buffet. Someone was trying to get some click bait.
