    Dang. That makes our game with them that much harder.

    Glad to see that the BAGgers don't appear to be in the mix to get him.

    So yeah, he could definitely prove it. It happened.

    Do I think this has WAY more to do with Frohm than anything some drunk idiot said in the stands? Absolutely.
    Fields clearly has a right to be upset with Adam Sasser, the baseball player. I’m not so sure he has a case that the school itself has provided a harmful atmosphere. Sasser was released from his scholarship immediately and from the reports I’ve seen the school is either in the process of expulsion or already did so. Obviously nobody should have to endure racial epithets but the offender is apparently gone. It would be different if the school took no action.

    Also, it’s not clear the epithet was spoken directly to him. It was a (likely drunk) idiot in the stands at the stadium. Perhaps Fields heard it, perhaps not. It seems like he was made made aware of it after the fact.

    Thirdly, the Fields family will place his sister on the UGA softball team this academic year and haven’t yet rescinded that (to my knowledge and the incident was months ago). Obviously if the older brother feels unsafe and threatened no father would subject also subject his daughter to that.

    This incident, Tate, Shea, etc unfortunately confirm some of the stereotypes of Gen Z.

    But a team on our schedule next year does appear to be in the mix. A team in which the game could go either way. Thats not much better.

    Thats very interesting and damning for Field's case. I don't think that will matter but it should sink any chance Field's has to get a waiver.

    I was reading a TCU forum and found this

    "I texted him earlier, I’ll let you know when he responds"

    "Considering 3 possibly 4 teams. One intrigues him but the climate is a concern. He has talked to all but is torn. Will announce as soon as he and his family feel comfortable with one. He really isn’t sure when that will be."

    https://forum.killerfrogs.com/index....218013/page-11

    I wonder if Maryland is the team with climate concerns?

    I don't disagree with anything you're seeing, I was merely responding to the question "I suppose that depends on whether or not he was subject to racism. . . ".

    He clearly was, regardless of whether he heard it or not. He certainly heard about it and therefore was subject to racism at the University of Georgia.

    I also agree with you that Georgia did everything right by Fields and that this entire thing is simply an excuse to get around sitting out a season. If Frohm broke his arm, Fields would not be transferring.

    I hope that you don't think that's the only way in which one can experience racism...

    Obviously not. I browsed online for like thirty seconds and read that was what the incident was. I'm assuming you have to prove some kind of descrimination to get the ncaa to approve the transfer.

    I don’t think anyone can totally escape racism, so I legitimately don’t understand the argument for Fields being eligible immediately at Ohio State. Someone needs to spell it out for me.

    I think it basically comes down to the NCAA doesn't have the will to fight it even if they think it's a fake claim.

    I keep reading this but still don’t understand the narrative. What possible negativity would come from telling Fields “no”? Virtually 100% of the people discussing this admit Fields claim of trauma is bonafide bull****. Is the worry the largely ignorant screech owls in the twittersphere will descend on Indianapolis? And say what, exactly? Fields has no argument, or reason to leave UGA.

    Because we live in such a politically charged/politically correct world that the NCAA will worry about an insensitivity backlash. If they do grant the waiver, which I believe they will, they'll make some changes after the fact to prevent such a move going forward. My two cents.

    It's Athens, Ga. The school has a serious headwind regarding atmosphere. I understand that the school itself may have done all it could, but Athens? Students? Fans? I can understand why he wouldn't want to stay. Yes I know that I strayed from the point...

    Carry-on.
