Eli Ricks mother wants to clear the air: not an opt out, not a transfer
In an Athletic article, but just this bit:

quote:

...For a full year now, people have speculated about the intentions of her son. They wondered if he was leaving this past winter. They wondered about his status every time he missed practice this year.

And now the All-American LSU cornerback is out for the season due to a reaggravated shoulder injury that will require surgery. Again, there is speculation about what this means.

“Elias plays through pain,” Shauna told The Athletic. “This is not an opt-out. This is not, ‘He’s gonna transfer.’ He’s injured.”


Goes on to say Ricks has a history of shoulder issues, tearing his labrum at the end of his junior year in high school, but didn't tell anyone about it so he could still play.





So lesson learned, our fan base can big a small bitter penis at times.

At least we got that out of the way. Next man up? Flott looks like he wants to play.




She's saying it's not a transfer btw, it's an injury. They poorly worded that.

Agree 100%, this article is the exact clarification that was needed. Too much speculation going on with the current climate of things.

Agreed. The kid's got another year before he can go pro. When would you rather him have this surgery? At the beginning of next season? No. In the middle of a clearly lost season is the proper time for him to have this out so he can rehab and be ready to go in the spring.

It's not as if he made this up. Did you dummies not see the shoulder brace he wears?

Thank you mommy.

Not sure why he didn't have surgery last year?

I mean, the quotes around the transfer part should have made it clear she was saying it was NOT that

I would rather him take care of it now so he can get back to work for next year. This season is scuffed regardless.

I understand her frustration, but this fanbase has been burned more than others recently with guys opting out. We just expect it under this regime.

I remember something about Ricks thinking about opting out or transferring a while back and then he didnt.

Even then it was a rumor, dude has pretty much balled out for us.

Ricks has been quiet off the field and a beast on the field.

Hope he gets 100% healthy and comes back for next season.

If he does transfer, how can you blame him? He signed up with the national champs and Ed ran the Ferrari off a cliff.

A few low IQ, scared individuals don't equal a fan base.
