Pookah Williams Opts Out from Kansas: Wonder how Miles Feels Now

Not sure how to imbed properly, but the guy Les Miles chose over Herbert to start at Kansas just [mod edit: opted out] for the year.... Glad #21 is with us!!!!

[mod edit: updated language to be more conciliatory towards a player in a tough situation]

He didn't "quit" for the year. He mother is sick and he went home to be with her. That is a lot different than "quitting" on the team.

Agreed. Maybe a mod edit of the title is in order to class up the place?

His mom is very sick. I'm sure he'll pop up somewhere, but school/football ain't on his mind right now.

"Opts out" is a more charitable title. We sure are sensitive around here lately.

Well in some circles, people genuinely believe football players are selfish if they care more about their family or personal health than football.

Unfortunately true.

The people in those circles suck.

I'm sure that's true. I don't think it's true on this forum and I don't think the OP made that implication.

On a football related note: his numbers were better than Herbert's, which makes you wonder how good he could be running behind a different line.

Best of health to his family.

Les Miles has the 'Rona, so he probably doesn't feel very good right now

maybe this is when we'll learn that eating grass is the best cure for it *shrug emoji*

Maybe Pookah wants to transfer here next year too? :D

Honestly, in recent weeks, Pookah probably felt like a shell of himself...

Is there a link or some other type of information that I might be able to use to assess the information that has been heretofore shared with me? I do not know of this scenario nor would I know or be able to share said information if it were requested of me.

I'm going to have to ask you to leave.

Have you been watching Walking Dead lately?

Previously LowBrau.

No, but I had been watching Fight Club and there's this line that I tried to copy but couldn't remember, so I just looked it up:

I'm not disclosed to bespeak any such
information to you, nor would I, even
if I had said information you want,
at this juncture be able.

[Jack looks around, incredibly frustrated.]

You are a moron.

I'm afraid I have to insist you leave.

Damnit HoaT! What's the first rule about Fight Club?

I'm not entirely sure, I was late for the meeting, but I'm sure it's ok to talk about Fight Club

Ah ok. This sounds like something Eugene Porter would say from the show.

Sorry to hear about his mom..best wishes in recovery.

I'm glad we got Heisman Herbert
