GT kept it tight lipped due to privacy laws/rules about his health. The NCAA would definitely give him all 4 years back.How? I thought the clock started ticking when he stepped foot on campus. You know the old 5 to play four unless a year of hardship is added.
At this point, all parties should just move along. McCoy hopefully will get his Tech degree and be a productive citizen. If he wants to play football and is good enough, maybe he can be a free agent in the NFL.
Makes sense, I just didn't know if there was something more to the story.To respond to the question above, no I do not know of any issue that would make me not want to add McCoy to the team. I just feel like the young man is now a 22 year old man and needs to take advantage of his Tech degree and become a productive member of society. I have just seen a lot of guys that can not let go of their dreams and end up wasting a lot of their life chasing after something that has already passed them by. Good luck to him. It sounds like he is a making a mature / wise decision.
Congrats to Denzel.
Excellent point. At Bama, guys like this get shipped off to east bumble U and never heard from again. Or worse, finish their degree at Bammer.... and are never heard from again....I would like to see GT play this up: the guy gets hurt, stays on scholly, gets a degree and a first class job straight out of school. Only at GT!
I agree it might not mean much to an invincible 17 year old but maybe it would mean a lot to mom and dad.
