If true, here's more evidence of the incompetence of this staff. Aside from the obvious loss of talent in Bonner himself, punishing a kid who opted out because he suffers from asthma is not going to help with other recruits and other players on the current squad who might be considering their options. I came into this season thinking Lovie had made some progress, but I've since realized I was very very wrong and there's really nothing going right with this program.
On top of the asthma he also had a couple of very close family members pasd away just before the season that really made it hit home.. Ra'von is just a good dude that you should want to have around your program. Hes currently working on getting a masters in social work which isn't one of those joke degrees like recreation sports and tourism....(I know because I'm in the same classes )
IDK, I can’t see Lovie forcing guys out because of a COVID sit out. He may have told him realistically where he’s at on the depth chart which is likely pretty far down. I could be wrong, but it looks like he would have had a pretty limited role. I don’t blame him for looking to transfer, but I’m not sure bashing the staff is the best route to go.
Mississippi State has had 5-8 guys transfer out mid-season this year. Granted, Leach is new there and installing a completely new offense. Not a great sign for our program if that many scholarship players in Year 4.5 are choosing to leave before the season even ends.Not doubting you, but it seem early yet for guys to be planning an exit.
