Fans and now former Georgia receiver Mecole Hardman do not like the decision to move to the same school that Georgia just beat in the national championship just two weeks ago.

Hardman took to his Instagram story while reposting the Instagram post from Jermaine Burton.

"How you go to the team we just beat? And leave a team you won the Natty with?"

Hardman spent three seasons at Georgia (2016-19) at one point, even experimenting at defensive back for Georgia. Hardman would go on to be the second-round selection of the Chiefs.
