Georgia Vs. Florida: Two Gators Transferring Out Due To Playing Time

The University of Florida announced on Tuesday that tight end Gerald Christian and wide receiver Robert Clark were transferring from the program. Both players expressed a desire for more playing time as their reason for the move in written statements released by the school. 

Both players are true sophomores and will have to sit out the 2012 season if they transfer to another Division 1 program. Christian has four catches for 72 yards and a touchdown this season while Clark has not touched the ball this season other than a muffed punt at the end of the Gators' 17-6 loss to Auburn. 

Alligator Army writer Andy Hutchins sums up what the departures mean for the Gators:

The translation, here: Christian, a tight end, and Clark, a wide receiver, likely said something like "I want more playing time" to Muschamp, who said something like "Uh, that's not happening." And so Florida's anemic passing game loses two more little-used options, Florida's "You can play from Day One" pitch to recruits gets a little more potent, and the beat-up, depleted Gators lose more of the precious little depth they have.
