Some interesting comments from Rusty on his podcast... (it was recorded before Newman opted out)



Any way to link this?

That has to be an old screenshot. I just looked and he's not in any part of the directory.

Or a brilliant plan

Show fake picture
Get the idea in Fields' head about going back
B1G somehow fricks up again
Fields' requests transfer
The NCAA spins the wheel and it lands on accepted
Fields comes back leads Georgia to a 13-0 natty

Sitting out a year can not help his draft prospects.

Odd situation, no question about that.

I mean, if he starts training strictly for the combine now, he’ll be okay...still QB4 most likely.

Also, pretty sure with the recent sit outs over the past couple years and now the “excuse” of COVID, we will likely see a massive shift in players sitting out their junior years regardless of COVID moving forward

I agree with this. I think there have been guys who have wanted to do this for years but didn't want the backlash that came with it.

Maybe so but it all depends on tape. Take Salyer for example. I really feel like he’s about to have a break out year and go high in the draft. But he has very little tape so far because he’s been a back up so despite the fact he’s poised for a blow up year, sitting it out isn’t really an option if he wants a good draft grade/pick

Uhm....you are talking about a guy that's not even in most mock drafts for next year. We are talking about rising juniors that are first 3 round type players...especially ones that don't feel like dealing with their underwater basket weaving class.

I was referring to the Trevor Lawrence types. He could have declared after they mashed Alabama in the national title game that he's never playing another down of college football, sit out for two years, and would still be the #1 pick in the draft next year.

Clowney could have done the same after his freshman season at South Carolina. These are the kinds of things I think we will start seeing more often.

You’re right. I guess the point I was trying to make is there are very few rising juniors or redshirt sophomores that couldn’t benefit from more experience and good tape. Chase from LSU feels like an exception more than a rule. Rice and davis are good, but they’ll benefit greatly from another good year.

So far, Newman is the only UGA player who has opted out. That fact leads me to believe that the Dawgs don't have a significant COVID problem. I hope that we can keep our coaches and players healthy and available.

Newman got horrifically awful advice from someone. Epic.

Funny that kirby's, These players think they are better than they really are" quote was prior to him coming here.

Zero chance at nfl now with playing

I think of Burrow saying he would be currently looking for a regular job if he didn't get to play last year.

Of course they don't and I would bet almost every draft eligible player doing this has an agent in his ear giving him shitty advice.

Wonder why we're not seeing many non draft
eligible guys opting out? Strange...

Newman came to only get the G on his chest. UGA sounds a hell of a lot better than Wake. Projected at best the 6th QB? Look at who’s ahead if him. Good riddance.

The only thing that annoys me is he took a scholarship and even more importantly reps away from another guy with this being an even shorter offseason than normal. Even worse given that we are installing a new offense.

Is it bad advice? Seems the pundits were pretty high on Newman at the next level....is there any real upside to playing a 10 game SEC schedule and possibly a playoff run against teams with missing pieces, with a team with missing pieces, in a season where we will most likely see numerous games cancelled? Playing a 10 game schedule against SEC defenses could be DISASTROUS even without the misfortune of getting injured doing so. Newman is pretty in the eyes of pundits right now....he may have been prettier after 2021 but he may have also been uglier going against SEC defenses instead of ACC defenses...and maybe he knew this even if no one else did. Who knows. If I were in his position I would've made the same decision given the circumstances which have evolved...I just do not see an upside in this case.

His entering the portal may have swayed someone else's decision to do so also. We will never know. He should be given some benefit of the doubt because he did come to UGA before the schedule changed. Playing 10 SEC defenses instead of 7 is a whole nother animule!
