Good luck to him in Chapel Hill.

Here's to seeing Barrington Edwards in the new Leon commercials.
Travis Daniels: "I play for the name on the side of my helmet, not the one on the back of my jersey"
Barrington Edwards: “[It all came down to] where I’m going to be the ‘man,’"
I would have probably done the same thing. I love my Tigers, but if I am a talented RB like he is, you have to go and do whats best for you. He will probably be a star there instead of buried on the Depth chart here...
Well at least he didn't go to Florida.
Let the guy do what's best for him. Just about everybody in life behaves or should behave in a way that is to his own personal advantage. That's the assumption people make in almost every situation in life. That's why employers expect people to work harder to get paid more, haggle with the salesman to pay less, etc. I've never understood that mindset that expects others to sacrifice their best interest for the best interest of others...there is a give and take that goes on that is natural. I hope Edwards runs all over the "Criminoles" and the Hurricanes in the ACC.
or Georgia. I wish he would have gone to Pitt so I could watch him play
Edwards looked, last year, like he loved special teams. Something I remember JV saying is that he was going to play where ever the coaches put him, be it on special teams or in the defensive backfield. JV was resigned to being a 3rd teamer and a special teams maniac... then injuries happened and look where he is now.
I wish Edwards the best but I would have loved to have seen him stick it out and make a contribution in any way that he could. I can't fault him for going somewhere where he'll be able to start at running back.
How sorry was Nick Saban to see him go? Weren't there some discipline problems at the heart of his transfer?
