Wait, why do we celebrate this guy if his actions caused us to lose a championship, his dropped ball ended the UGA game, and the only credit for him doing well in the NFL goes to UCF?

Transliterate is not the same as transcribe which is what the poster probably meant.

Because he chose to go to GT. He chose to stick it out during the transition even though there were a lot of voices in his ear telling him otherwise. He stayed out of trouble. He kept his grades up. He continues to be the best WR to point to when defending the use of WR's in our offense. And, he played a MAAAAAJOR role in the success of our football team.

Bay Bay is a good guy. I know him personally. And, all of this crap just goes to show how stupid opinions can be when they're informed by the internet. And, I include myself in that last statement.

I appeal to most of the posters in this thread to come to your senses on this.

In reality, however, he made low rent remarks and managed to sound completely illiterate in the process.
How what said any different than you come on here talking about Tevin compared to Vad? Would you be sad if Tevin left? A matter of fact, did anyone even hear the interview like I did? There was absolutely no ill- feelings in his comments. He said a lot of good about Tim in the interview but also stated truth. Since it was the truth about the "Chosen One" it's a problem

Good points all. I'm back to being a DT fan.

The difference is that I'm a random fan chirping on a message board.

I've always been a big DT fan and I still am. I remember going to Tallahassee in '09 and watching DT sign autographs after the game long after every other player was already in the lockerroom. He's a great guy and great player.

This was not his finest moment, for several reasons.
