Will they make up a rule that he will have to sit out in the 1st half of one of our biggest games next season???

They already have that rule in place. He had to sit out the first half of the Wake Forest game this year because he was ejected in the second half of the Championship game.

the article headlines says he WILL NOT have to sit out first half against Georgia. i would assume that's because he sat out the second half of the OS game.

Per the rule, miss a half. He missed the second half of the game already. Penitence paid. Fields sux, but it was the right call as defined by the rule. Too bad the rule is a moving target.

I know a lot of y’all are down on him after. The targeting call but he is a leader and CBV’s quarterback. Huge!
Linebacker should be a strength next year. Now we just need Turner to stay on the backend.
Circle those 2 with all of the youngsters and we should be good.

Nope....not down on him at all....

Good point. ETN coming back was great but it may have ultimately cost us Bowman. Not sure how anyone can complain about playing, however if they can't even beat out a guy who will most likely go undrafted. And it was pretty obvious last season that the defense took a huge step back anytime he wasn't on the field

If not, then yeah, I’d prefer to see other guys get those snaps.

There is no doubting his importance to the team, which is why it’s so frustrating that he plays out of control more than he should.

Surely you can see the problem with the fact that he has gotten himself ejected from the playoffs not once, but twice. It’s past time for him to do better.

Skalski is an important player for us. He is a leader on our team, a de facto quarterback of our defense. We need him to play.

When he lets his aggressiveness and emotions get the best of him, and gets ejected from games, he hurts our team. He is considerably less valuable when he’s not playing.

The last two games we’ve lost have been in games when he has been ejected; games when our defense played poorly. I don’t think that’s a coincidence, do you?

objectivity when it comes criticizing an individual's level of performance.

Maybe Skalski should stay for a solid decade to prove his worth to you?

Do you think he is up for that? Would that be enough to time to garner support from your majesty?

But hey, he's just a kid.

Which is why he needs to stop making plays that result in penalties/injections.

So two snaps over the course of what 28 games is someone playing outta control? Yes what a pattern, very concerning. TWO SNAPS, 28 GAMES. You can even go back farther then that 2 snaps over the course of playing 3 seasons of football. He sat out 1 and played 3 years but yes those 2 snaps define him as outta control... ??

What were/are Skalski's NFL possibilities? I have never been very good at guessing defensive talent going to NFL. I thought Spencer Sheuy had a better than decent shot at playing on Sundays, but I don't think anyone even gave him consideration.

This reminds me of when Florida State had that 30 year old quarterback wanker that won the Heisman. I can’t imagine there are too many classes left Skalski hasn’t already taken so how do we keep him eligible? Be pretty funny if he earns a doctorate before the end of next season: “And Dr. Skalski makes another house call on the Gamecock quarterback!”.

Mixed emotions. Great player and leader, but what about the 4 and 5 star studs behind him waiting to get their shot. Bentley is a punishing tackler with great speed. Barely stepped on the field this year! Going to ask him to sit another year? Transfer portal could be in the offing for him and other players.
