Strickland not returning

Just to update a post from last week, reserve offensive lineman Tanner Strickland has confirmed that he will not be returning to the football team next year.

The news was not out of the blue. Strickland, a redshirt junior, had battled shoulder injuries, sitting out the entire 2009 season after surgery.

He did play in all 13 games this year, including three starts at guard. But he's graduated, so he's going to move on with his life.

“I’ve had troubles with my shoulder, and this past couple of years have been tough,” Strickland said. “And I just decided to move on from football.”

Now that Cordy Glenn has announced his return, Georgia is better prepared to handle Strickland's absence.

So this wasn't even an "I'm not getting any playing time" issue. Unless he had a major injury setback, he's basically saying that playing between the hedges is a chore to him. This is exactly the kind of person we don't need on our team anymore. Let's hope it was our new workout routine that scared him off. DBD!
