Guess we'll get to see how good Allison is sooner than expected. Hopefully he sucks or it's just another thing to hate Richt for.

If more and more higher-tier draft prospects start to skip bowl games does this correlate to less bowls? Also, will this possible effect usher in an expansion of the playoff? Grier doesn't skip if there is a playoff game instead of a bowl.

I wonder if he gets the bowl swag? Travel with the team?

I bet Allison will be solid. Even that Howard kid we played in 2016 was good for them at some points. It’s a qb friendly system

I thought the main reason he transferred wasn't necessarily because we thought he sucked but because he and his family got the impression that under rosier and kosi we were going to more of a dual threat attack which doesn't fit him at all. Of course we ended up with a no threat attack, so it doesn't make any sense now but that's how I remember that transfer going down. Maybe I'm wrong.

The moment he didn’t beat out Rosier he was gone.

It looked like a two year sit job at the time and he’d already burned his RS.

Grier and his entire family are colossal douches.

Not a commentary on skipping bowl games or even his play at West Virginia but just me reiterating that they're allllll douches. Both parents and all the siblings.

I really hate this whole skipping a game thing. It makes sense to me if you were like Tua who got injured or something in the last 2-3 games of the season...but to be completely (relative to a whole season of play) healthy through the last couple weeks plus bowl practice is pretty weak to me.

Why you want the KID to fail? The love and admiration some of yall have for these lousy coaches is unparalleled...

Why risk losing millions of dollars for a meaningless bowl game?

Always liked Captain Jack as a prospect. Hopefully he balls out. It's going to hurt if he does but honestly nothing Richt has done with the QB position has worked for us so it's to be expected at this point.
