Thursday evening, Georgia sent out a press release confirming that, after he graduated, Mark Beard would be transferring out of the football program.

A little over 12 hours later? Forget about it. Pretend like it never happened.

In yet another release sent out Friday morning, UGA confirmed that the offensive lineman has changed his mind and will remain with the Bulldogs. The release stated that, after giving it some thought, Beard asked to return to the Bulldog team.

In a statement confirming Beard will remain in Athens, head coach Mark Richt said he could relate to what the tackle was going through and welcomed the player back.
