Christophe Varidel has left the team for medical reasons

I wish him the best of luck.  Frankly, I think people's expectations for him were inflated based on one fluke game against BYU.  He averaged 6-9 ppg at FGCU, which despite their tournament run is not the highest level of competition, and then he went to Division 2 Chaminade where he averaged 19 ppg.  Expecting him to be an impact player in the SEC was probably a stretch.

That said, losing him does hurt our depth, but with Devin Mitchell, Riley Norris, and Justin Coleman coming in, plus Shannon and Levi returning, we have plenty of guys who should be able to make the 3.
