Tyler Murphy joins the transfer parade out of Gainesville

The program announced in a tweet posted to its Twitter account Sunday afternoon that Tyler Murphy “will look for an opportunity to play somewhere else next year.”  Murphy graduated from the school Saturday.

Because he will have his degree in hand, Murphy will be permitted to play immediately at any school to which he decides to transfer, including one at the FBS level.

After starter Jeff Driskel suffered a season-ending injury in the third game of the year, Murphy went on to start the next six games.  Murphy’s own injury issuesforced him out of the last three games of the season.

Agent designs contact with Manziel

A report recently surfaced that Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel will sign with Select Sports Group, a Houston-based sports agency. Doing so would result in a forfeiture of Manziel’s remaining eligibility to play college football. Reached for confirmation of the report, agent Erik Burkhardt of Select Sports Group denied not only that Manziel plans to sign with the firm but that the firm has talked to Manziel. Having contact with Manziel would not constitute a violation of NFLPA rules. “It’s simply false,” Burkhardt told PFT regarding the report. “Nobody in our firm has ever spoken to Johnny. But if you can up to him, tell him I think he’s a hell of a player and should win the Heisman.”

6 business lessons from an SEC coach

4.  A good system is no substitute for a locker room full of self-starters

Behind any winning coach is the motivation to recruit, to sell his team to the nation’s top players. Sure, your systems are in place. You’ve measured every detail and key performance indicator, but if you don’t have self-starters or a roster full of playmakers, you’re not wining games and in turn losing recruits. It’s a vicious cycle.

At the end of the day, the people in your organization make all the difference. You look to recruit players that are the strongest, fastest or quickest in their respective positions. Finding and developing self-starters into elite players is the key to success in any organization or team.

5. Excuses and success are incompatible

A big part of having a successful attitude is eliminating excuses from your life. “We change the attitudes of players so that they’re positive, they’re encouraging, and they function well and have a big impact on their life,” says Pinkel. Excuses and success are simply incompatible.

However valid they may be, excuses for non-performance soften your character and sedate your own conscience. When players take responsibility and accept their mistakes, they correct their issues and find more accountable ways to handle adversities and challenges. For Pinkel, it’s an incredible feeling to see the boost of self-esteem in players who have gotten rid of the excuse habit.

The world measures success in terms of performance. Nothing else.
