    Are you saying he can come back here? I'm not sure I want him to. Thats like letting your gf back in after she's blown all of your friends

    I don’t think he has officially left yet so I don’t think he would have to satisfy the academic requirements for admission. I don’t want him back either at this point. We have enough weaponry on offense and I don’t want the headache.

    We aren't letting him out of his suspension. I said it at the time I didn't think he'd play at Florida next year. This is no surprise. Shame. Hope the best for the kid..

    Dwight McGlothern was telling him to come back things are better now on twitter, so that's positive to hear at least that there's optimism with the staff changes.

    Is the suspension why he backed out on Florida?

    Damn, but this kid is getting some horrible advice. I'm really beginning to feel sorry for him.

    Suspect he got some good advice too, he just isnt listening. Such is life. You'd hope it was a teaching moment but kids these days are taught its always someone elses fault.

    I don’t want him back either, but in the end my opinion doesn't count. The opinion of the the rest of the team of him should be #1. If he is not warmly welcomed back by almost everyone in the locker room then screw him. Our team did not play as one last year. There are vibes that they are coming together. The last thing we need is a diva.

    he was a real good player but honestly, it seems i remember us playing better team ball after he left. but i tried to forget the season as a whole, to tell you the truth.

    That's definitely true, but I'm not sure there's causation there. A lot of it can probably be attributed to Max Johnson.
