Georgia Football: ‘Jovial’ Former Dawg Shaq Wiggins Transferring, Again
Anyone wanna bet he follows Todd Grantham again?
Not really Georgia news at all, but always fun to follow Dawgs who move on to other places. Shaq Wiggins, who transferred to Louisville after getting decent burn as a freshman in 2013.
His quote, if you’ll remember, was a bit of a running joke here for a while:
“I am looking for a team who will embrace my personality, someone who is a jovial, carefree and a bit of a jokester but who knows when to put jokes aside, get focused and become a true competitor, especially when on the field.”
We, of course, took liberties with that quote at the time, as the three most famous people in the Louisville athletic department were Grantham, sex-scandal-ridden Rick Pitino, and…sex-scandal-ridden Bobby Petrino.
“First of all, (the) University of Georgia is a great school but Coach Richt has lost control of what it means to be a college student. When you are new to an organization, it’s extremely important to have the right fit. I love motorcycles and want to reach my highest number of potential job contacts. Therefore, after careful thought and much consideration, I believe that it is in the best interest to transfer to Louisville, as Coach Petrino has worked for 5 different organizations in the past 7 years. Hell, his brother has had 7 jobs in the past decade. That’s how you network, baby.
“I am looking for a team who will embrace my personality, someone who is a jovial, carefree and a bit of a jokester
but who knows when to put jokes aside, get focused and become a true competitor, especially when on the field. After playing for Coach Grantham for an entire year, I know he is that man.
“I want to learn, and I feel as if Rick Pitino is a much better role model for me than Coach Richt, because I LOVE hostesses and Italian restaurants. I want someone who can channel my energy and enthusiasm to take my game to the next level. “
Safe to say that only Grantham embraces his personality. The Dawgs will get a chance to go 2-0 vs. Wiggins when they host Mississippi State in September.
