Confirmed: Bates Is In

Daren Bates has been cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse. He is the 21st of 28 signees to enroll. The only one awaiting official clearance is Taikwon Paige who does not appear likely to clear.

  1. Paige, Coleman, Jacobs, Taylor, James, Lanier, and Jackson. Too many to not qualify. This needs to improve in the next class!!

    Gene is continuning the tradition of Tuberville. Non-qualifiers were the CTT special. Coleman, Jacobs and James were not Gene's. Paige should have amde it, but he came up one credit short.

  3. CTT Special indeed. I agree with Anon 4:09, and it will improve in 2010.

  6. Glad to hear Bates is in... I have a feeling this staff will put more of an emphasis on qualifying. We need guys that will contribute!!!

  7. Bates will be a sleeper.....AKA Jr Rosegreen headbusta. Jr was my fav AU player ever. He was fearless and would hit you just to kill you. Welcome Bates!

  8. i would hardly say he is continuing the CTT tradition, considering most of the guys that didn't qualify are Tubs' guys.

  9. I agree philly, Rosegreen didn't shy away from the receiver coming across the middle. Just ask Reggie Brown.

  10. Hell yeah Armchair....one of the greatest football hits of all time was JR "bring the pain" Rosegreen on Reggie Brown. Rosegreen laid some real football hit anesthesia in that UGA game. WDE to all y'all.
