Can someone please make me understand something. If UGA is such a racist and threatening institution towards black folk why his baby sister committed too and continuing to play Softball for UGA? Serious question? He ran from competition and a dumb ass racist baseball player gave him the perfect out. Tate had a coaching change. Much better case in my opinion.I'm not sold the NCAA is going to do us any favors. Fields was "directly" the recipient of racist comments. Martells argument will be that he couldn't be a part of the Buckeyes protection of domestic violence abusers. He's indirectly affected. NCAA has plausible cover to justify denying Tate's eligibility even after granting Fields waiver.
It's all about the lawyer.I understand where you’re coming from but I’ve always felt Fields’ claim is weak. Someone yelled a racial slur? In the Deep South? Based on this every player of minority heritage could transfer with immediate eligibility.
The only word Fields has trouble with is ‘backup’.
it's because Justin's waiver wasnt focused on racism at georgia...Can someone please make me understand something.

The knowledge is greatly appreciated.it's because Justin's waiver wasnt focused on racism at georgia...
uga did everything they could do...they dismissed the racist and for the most part showed zero tolerance towards racism at georgia.
justin argued he chose georgia because of the opportunity to play baseball there.(which was documented)
that racist happened to be a popular baseball player..and dismissing him meant justin joining the baseball team would be awkward at best.
the friday PM news drop drove home the point that every side wanted this behind them (reason for quickie-ish waiver...it was not opposed)
considering 70% of waivers are granted..you'd think odds are that Tate would be eligible for 2019 regardless
but because of his own twitter fingers, his attorney's public comments, and "emotions" of whoever advises the kid... i'm not confident at all.
(and if he truly could have become a grad transfer after spring..there better be a darn good reason to give up that option)
imo, the DV accusations route wouldd a dead end.
#1 bc the charges that caused the controversy up there were eventually dropped and nothing became of those accusations(outside urban protected a crappy assistant coach for years)
...and #2 there is no actual documentation/convictions of DV outside (much less how a messy divorce by a WR coach affected tate)
(and 100% chance you'll get OSU opposing you...which will mean a long protracted process )
has Tate's waiver request even been submitted to the NCAA?
The more guys in the running the better. Anybody that disagrees doesn't want what's best for the team, they just want the guy they've already picked to win so they can be right. And that's a btch move.The Jarren fans should absolutely want Tathan to get the waiver. Having the QB competition now is preferable than Jarren simply beating out N'Kushi but then still having any shortcomings this year always being measured against an unknown entity ready to take the job from him next year.
