That other site is talking about an awful lot of our guys not playing in this game (academics, injuries and draft). Anybody hear about this? And the details?

Line went from 2 to 6 immediately after the news came out.

Okay, so to be transparent with y'all:

This morning we started to hear rumblings of grades being an issue for multiple players. As a team, we decided not to post anything about it until we got confirmation.

Our biggest concerns were 1) Putting a player down publicly for not making grades, and running the risk of the news not being true. And 2) Giving our opponents a leg up on prep, similar to our decision with Azeez Al-Shaair's injury leading up to the Marshall game last year.

It sucks. These aren't those fun stories to share with y'all. We don't like to break or post stories that put our student athletes down. Like all of you, we're fans first. So we were really hoping to get confirmation that these rumors weren't true.

Well this at least gives some other guys a chance to play and step up.  We knew that Bryant wasn't going to play.  I feel like we have enough depth at RB.  My biggest concern is at WR.

Was Kiffin a stickler on academics and being a good student or didn't he care? Especially at this point where a good season would get him a job offer with a P5.

Bonnerís been banged up, Davidsonís potential absence is not tied to academics from what Iíve heard. And Bryantís been sick. Not sure about Tisdale yet. The others are academics.†

So of the 7 only 3  academic. Somewhat embarassing but not a media scandal.
