07:14 AM ET 05.14 | Set to leave, DeVon Walker is walking right back -- changing his mind after being granted a release from his scholarship with the intention to transfer from Florida. The 6-foot-6, 191-pound averaged 23 points and 10 rebounds during his senior year at Winter Haven High School (Fla.) where he led his team to the Florida High School Athletic Association Class 6A state semifinals before choosing the Gators over offers from Alabama, where he took an official visit, Georgia, Miami, Clemson, Kansas State and Central Florida. However, he had an unproductive freshman campaign in 2012-2013. ... "Florida is such a great place, and the more I thought about it, I just realized this is where I want to be," Walker said in a release.

Maybe a scooter. The only freshman worth a car was Frazier II.

He did not expect Billy D to call his bluff.

Scooters are all the rage these days

Easier to steal for the average D-1 fooseball player

Well, yeah, but Billy actually DID leave -- for 3 days or so. But your point is well taken.

And for all of you without a copy of "The SEC Cheater's Handbook and Disgruntled Talented Player Retention Guide", here is proof that the techniques contained in that bad boy work for bballers, and not just the football types.

I stand corrected. Did some research and it appears Billy was gone a total of 6 days. My bad.
