    I don't think being transparent is throwing him under the bus. Makes sense although the kid is only a sophomore and he is or at least was a starter. Not sure what he feels is a better situation for him but as a coach, you don't want guys like that in your program anyhow if they are willing to leave after the second game of the season when he's playing a ton.

    But weren't we told that he was injured?

Maybe the parents got involved.

    Either way, it doesn't look good for the staff.
    Tanner Holmes was good friends with Cody Mitchell the TE who transferred out last year.

    Are the locker room reasons given why he left last year applicable here?

    Came out of camp as the #1 WLB.
    Started game 1, came out injured. We're told we need Holmes on defense. VITAL to our success.
    Game 2, game time decision, plays sparingly. (Someone claims he had a "sickness")
    Sunday, he announces transfer.

    I remember a situation eerily similar to this a few years ago. Player was a starter at a prominent position. He quit after the 4th or 5th game of the season. He said all the right things to the media, but the situation was far from ideal and reflected very poorly on the staff.

    It would be one thing if we were a program like Bama, LSU, Florida or another major recruiting powerhouse. We aren't and we are shedding players like a golden retriever sheds hair. There is definitely something amiss about what is going on.

    We can't afford to have another losing season and I just don't see us winning 5 more games. The return on investment is no where near what a $1M a year HC is expected to produce. Time to cut out losses.

    So a RS Frosh, that came out of camp as the #1 WLB, who was injured in game 1... Waited until game 2 of the season to transfer because of... playing time?

    Don't insult my intelligence man..

    I'm sure as you know everything will come to light. He said he was "granted his release". Didn't say he "asked for and was granted". Subtle things but we shall see.

    There are a lot of omissions in that letter. If you analyze it, you can see where the gaps are. There's a lot here.

    Guy could've been a 4 year starter. Starts game 1 then sparingly in game 2 due to illness. Announces he's transferring. Hud justifies playing time as reason for departure. RIIIIGGGHHHHTTT....still waiting on a real reason

    Am I wrong for expecting a little more class from the head of the program and not bad mouthing a kid? I mean, just say 'He chose to play elsewhere', and not insinuate that he sucked and didn't work hard. A LOT of baseball players leave disgruntled because they can't get on the field, and for the life of me, I just cannot remember, or imagine, Robe selling a kid down the river.

    Let me stress this a little more. THE KID IS A RS FROSH and was the opening day STARTER. STAR-TER. Tanner Holmes was a prized recruit. TCU wanted him as badly as we did. I won't be at all surprised if he ends up there. Playing time had nothing to do with this happening.

    Also, have you sided with the coach on every single player that quit the team? Just by sheer odds, that would be an incorrect assumption.

    He is a typical meathead coach who refuses to look in the mirror as to why the program isn't where it should be. Between transfers and guys who never made it into campus we must be down to about 65% FBS talented athletes. The other 35% are walking quality kids.

    I didn't miss it I just didn't comment on it.

    I did say there might be a lot more of this to come and the reasons won't matter.

    Supposedly the kid was hurt and was pressured to play. He couldn't go and was told that he either played or not see the field the rest of the season.

    It's very believeable, unfortunately. Hud is most likely desperate to keep his job.
