One of the biggest transfer moves in the SEC this past offseason was Georgia landing Florida running back Trevor Etienne in December.

Etienne recently talked with Tate Ratledge on Real Talk about his decision to join the Bulldogs and didn't hold back on his comments, calling the Gators a "losing team" that is still rebuilding. Per On3:

“For me, it was like, does the good outweigh the bad?” Etienne said. “I’ve been with Florida for two years. I went through that whole process of rebuilding, it’s kind of still rebuilding. I felt like there was a lot of uncertainty, so like, a lot of questions were unanswered. There’s a lot of unknown going on. I felt like, I can stay here and do what I’ve been doing for another year or two, or bet on myself and take a chance somewhere else.

“Pretty much to sum it up, it was like, I can either be Running Back 2 on a losing team, or go somewhere – I wanted to play in December, too. That also played a big part in me transferring. So I said, I can stay Running Back 2 on a losing team or go somewhere and possibly be Running Back 1 and win a natty.”
This probably won't sit well with Florida fans.

so, he is happy going from #2 at UF to #2 or 3 at UG? NIL money was probably better. Good move for him I guess, he still needs to learn how to pass block to get more playing time with any team.

So....he thinks he'll go from RB2 on a losing team, to RB2 on a good, or rather great team??? Makes sense...

Yes. The UF program has been in a constant state of weirdness since Meyer’s chest pains.

Thanks grammar police. Unfortunately there isn’t a way to edit posts. I pulled a Larry Leo and didn't proof read before posting.

Did he say something wrong??? Sound like he had legit and honest answers to why he transferred.

No but just say, hey, I enjoyed my time at Florida but it was time for a change. I'm gonna go to UGA and be the best I can be and hopefully contribute. I also want to thank Florida for the opportunity they gave me. Honesty doesn't always equal class.
