Still love OU and every single player on the team. Gonna miss the fam
I'm hell when I'm well.. And, I am never sick!
Hope his situation gets better!
It's a grind and it ain't for everyone. He needs to think it through because he could just be in a down spot temporarily. If he truly don't want to do it anymore then he has his reasons.
Seems to me if you're pitched into the abyss by some personal heartbreak the last thing you should do is throw over something that's been an anchor of your identity for much of your life. It's worse than quitting your job. The loss or end of something important in your life isn't a good time to go over the side of the ship.
But it's easy to be rational about someone else's life.
If this arises out of a tragic event, the rest of his daily life will help him see it through. If the problem is a brain event, there are pills for it that can be adjusted to leave him his anger intact. I know; I adjust my anger as needed - and I've been known to whistle at a funeral.
I started 17 college football games. All teams lose players. It is a tough physical thing to do. Injuries can just destroy a youngster's dreams. Throw family problems on top of everything else, and it can be very discouraging. But all programs go through players. Everyone of these guys were elite players on their high school teams. They come to OU and every player here was the same. Only the elite of the elite get to play. That is a hard pill to swallow. Look at the roster of Central Oklahoma, Northeastern, or Southeastern some time. A majority of the players started at one of the big schools and transferred.

Geez....man up. Quiters never win and winners never quit.
He just needs to go then. If they talk him out of it he may just up a quit latter?
We don't want another Akim Millington.
But then there's always ^ this guy....
I take my cue from the way the coaches are treating the situation. If they're trying to talk him off the ledge, I'm still on his side.
Man, that's cold. We often never know the full reason behind these decisions. I thank him for his effort and wish him the best of luck whatever he decides.
