Coffee: The sad case of Goose Creek

Thursday, November 15

One of the top commitments to Georgia's 2013 class had his high school career ended not on the football field but in a meeting room.

Tramel Terry's Goose Creek (S.C.) High School team, undefeated, top-ranked in the state and considered one of the best prep teams in the country, was abruptly disqualified from the playoffs this week when it was learned the team had played an ineligible player, according to the Charleston Post & Courier and numerous other media outlets in the state of South Carolina.

An appeal Wednesday evening was unsuccessful, ending Goose Creek's season after one playoff victory.

Details of this still being fleshed out in South Carolina. But per this story and others, it is being reported the ineligible player transferred from another school and had used up his eligibility as a senior and that the error reportedly was discovered this week.

While this decision technically was following the rules, the timing and cruelty of this -- from a distance -- seems extreme. If nothing else, it was heartbreaking to follow Terry's Twitter feed Wednesday in the hours before and after the appeal was denied ...
