Post Thurman Morbley off team
I have a class with a football player (starting cb) and work with former DT (played last year) I’ve been told Thurman Morbley was kicked off for violating Withers 3 strike rule

I always thought is was weird that he was not starting over say Hays or King. Now, we know why. Remember, he was suspended early in the season and even with him back.. he was not starting.

Sad to see him go but if you can't honor the core values... gotta go.

Simple and easy question: Are the players buying in, or resisting the culture he's trying to put in?

well, it would be interesting to know what these three strikes were. You know, the seriousness of the offense. However, I suppose it's none of our business.

I'm changing my views on all this stuff.

Let's fill the locker room with drugs, sex, and booze and let's go get some players. I'm tired of losing.

I would volunteer to coach if that was the case.

Team wouldn't get better, but damn we'd have fun.

As a college student, the three strikes were nothing bad to me. If that implies what it was.

@TheRev I have asked them both this question before. They're are both players who got recruited by Fran but the DT played his last year with Withers and they moved him to Oline (he hated that). They have both said to me Withers is overall a better coach. He is said to be more involved, they say Fran talked through his position coaches and lived in his office. The CB in my class has now played two years under Withers and he is losing faith. He knows he is a better coach but says their is frustration in the locker room, especially with older guys. He even told me is not sure he will play next year despite having one year of eligibility left.

Just a PSA as well, I am not a Longhorn fan I have just seen many people reference people as bobhorns on here and thought it was too funny.

Post Re: Thurman Morbley off team
it would be fine if for every person this goon squad'er everett kicks off he goes and gets 2 comparable replacement commits within the next week, but no that would be putting in his work where his mouth and ego are. that way we wouldn't be getting closer to 65 players than 85 players. then he'll bitch and moan again next season about not having enough guys and keep the scholarship card in his back pocket. when was the last time he got a commit? august? since then he hasn't had a single commit and has even lost a couple of players (via season or career ending injuries, etc) and most notably drake centers. that's no bueno captain everett, where art thou recruits? if what bobhorn says is true about player morale not being up to what withers talks his 'guys' up to be at then we could see some serious attrition this winter. sounds like the culture hasn't truly really changed at all like he said it had. that was like the one thing that we were able to say he has truly done in the last 2 years and if we can't even say that then he hasn't done anything. I say we could lose as many as 10 schooly players via attrition this summer, I just hope if people do elect to leave they have the guts to do it weeks or months ahead of NSD so we have time to replace them... unlike some of the heartless clowns the last 2 years that keep making the cabinet even more empty

winter is coming dudes..

sucks to lose him, because he's a talented guy, but i find it hilarious that some of you would prefer to keep guys on the team who can't follow rules. (i realize your post is tongue in cheek, x)

Saul I don't think it's that these folks want to keep someone on the team who can't folow rules I think it's more that Withers is getting ready to be finished with his 2nd season so this is way too late for house cleaning to still be going on
