Not trying to preach here, but there is no "waiver" for UGA to sign. Kirby has nothing to do with this. The portal was designed to keep the coaches out of it.
The Compliance office from UGA has 48 hours to put the student athlete (SA) in the Transfer portal once they request it, which allows other institutions to make contact with the SA. They SA does not have to inform the old coach to do this. From there, it's all on the compliance office of the new school to do the paperwork for the NCAA to approve or reject. The old school can also submit paperwork, through the compliance office, to add details.
I hope you're right. But bear in mind two things. Folks seem to be dead set on screwing Tennessee however they can. And remember what ole Jim Harbaugh did to us with Aubrey. Plus Arizona State with Uros Plavsic. I so hope you're right.
Trey Smith is a one of a kind individual. I absolutely love his attitude and work ethic. I never thought he would play again. I am glad I was wrong. I really hope Morris, Wright and the other OL learn all they can from big Trey.
This Vol OL has the opportunity to be absolutely nasty this year. Good to see some hometown beef anchoring the OL this year.
