Austin Golson leaving the team...

62 posts in this topic

Word is that he's going to Auburn, Freeze is not blocking the transfer so we'll see him in one year, and it's because he's homesick...homesick.

This lanekiffin.gif wouldn't know what homesick is, dude is a starter too.

I mean he just blew our O-line all to hell.

Selfish ass reason to leave his teammates hanging.

There's got to be more to it than that. I have a guess but I'll just leave my assumptions to myself

If there is, I apologize, but y'all needed him pretty badly, didn't you?

In simplest terms, we are lanekiffin.gifed

Not anymore so than we would be in this situation. Freeze had a patchwork offensive line in 2012, and y'all did pretty well. And I have heard that it isn't a done deal he's gone.

But if he is leaving because he's homesick, that's a weak move. It's college. You and everyone else is homesick, man, at some point. There are people on that team--your friends and brothers--that depend on you.

I've heard a couple things: There's butthurt because of Tunsil, he has ailing grandparents, who apparently raised him; in which I case I get it, and/or he's homesick.

Okay then you can go play at Troy, imo.

It's just really bad timing. He takes every snap at rt through spring ball and as soon as it ends he wants out? If it really is his grandparents being sick, grow up and get a set of balls. That's what happens to old people.

Maybe freeze can work something out with him scheduling wise. Or whatever. Part of me just wants to say screw you and don't come back.

I know right? What is he going to do for them? Take over as caregiver? Well then I guess he can't go to school since that's a full time job taking care of someone.

I just don't understand the timing on this, the fact that he's a starter, no loyalty to your lineman. Dude cowboy the lanekiffin.gif up, there are guys your age getting fragged in Afghanistan right now and you're homesick??? gtfo of my office.

This is how I would put it to the kid, If I were Freeze (I am not sure if Freeze can have contact with the players in the summer, can he?) or his position coach:

I would sit him down across from me in my office, and I would just lay it before him.

Look, son, I have got umpteen young men out there who want to be Ole Miss Rebels, who want to a part of this family and team and want to win for this school and each other. It is a disservice to them to have to spend so much time coddling you and talking you back to the program. It's not fair to guys giving it their all, busting their ass in 2 a days in 90 degree weather wanting to get better while you sit over here with your lip pooched out pouting because you want to go home. I'll just ask you this: Do you want to be here? Do you want to be a member of this family? Do you want to be a student at the university of Mississippi? If you do, grab your gear and shag ass out there with the rest of the boys. If not, hit the door like your hair's on fire.

I don't have time for this. The team doesn't have time for this. The fans? The coaching staff, nobody has time for this, son. We all love ya, we all want you here. If we didn't, we wouldn't have recruited you. Take a few days, think over what you want, and get back to me. If you want to stay, we'll be ecstatic. If you don't, best of luck, son.

Stands up and walks out of office.

Bingo. If Freeze lets this kid transfer anywhere else in the SEC West, he's a moron. Send him to Troy or UAB, South Alabama, not a rival school in the same division, dude.

This is why I respect Dak so much. He got on a bus with his team mates and rode to SC when he knew his mom was in her final hours. He didn't do great that game, but the team needed him, and TR couldn't go that day. Mullen told him he didn't have to, told him we could play Williams, who wasn't redshirted anyway. Dak went because he knew his boys needed him.

But, I have a wild guess on what's going on. I just won't say it in this thread because this isn't a trash talk thread, and I know that's what would happen if I popped this out there.
