    Class Act by Shariff Floyd After Announcing He's Leaving Florida for the NFL

    Wow! I expected the exact opposite of class when I read the title. That's refreshing to see.

    thats like saying our three year starters that went to play in the NFL dont have class either?
    Lots of kids leave early to pursue an NFL career, and I can understand that... that was a classy way for him to think the fans and university, IMO.

    I said it was ok but i wouldnt call it classy. Was it nice sure it was. Imo to declare that a classy thing to do i think that it dilutes the term and takes away from the real deal classy people like barrett jones. What this player did was ok and nothing beyond that.

    Who says he doesn't have a degree? Who says he doesn't have a need for money in his family?

    You won't win this one. I refused to go along with calling the letter from Missouri after GA beat their brains in classy and was ridiculed endlessly for it. They were humbled by GA and only after that did they decide to be thankful to be in the SEC. Everyone declared that a classy move, but in my opinion it was very much like when my 7 year old is forced to say "I'm sorry" after punching his brother. Society has come to expect so little of people that not farting at the dinner table passes for class now.

    Good move. This doesn't take away from Barrett. It's a different player...on a different team. It's a very nice gesture.
