Original post:

Georgia coach Mark Richt announced on Wednesday that Ken Malcome and Derek Owens are leaving Georgia's football program. Richt said after practice...

"(Malcome) walked in my office just prior to practice and felt like he'd gotten so far behind in the competition at his position, he felt like he needed to go to another school and get a fresh start and maybe get a better opportunity to play," "If Ken (Malcome) came to me tomorrow and said, 'Coach I lost my mind. I'm sorry and I'd love to come back and compete here at Georgia,' "..."I'd hug his neck and say, 'Come on.'"
Both players have not decided on where they are transferring. However, the departures mean Georgia will have the ability to sign the maximum 25 scholarship players when signing day arrives in February if it chooses.
