    You know how many SELF-absorbed athletes I watch on ESPN every night? Guys who bitch & complain about their coaches, their teammates? BJ isn't one of THEM.

    Troy had him wrestle 57 his Freshmen year & he didn't bitch. He could have complained about Cael or the school but he didn't. When he asked for something back, like a RS the coaches wouldn't give it to him but he didn't bitch about it. His solution may have been flawed but isn't something to crucify the kid over.

    I think he is maturely moving on. He isn't naive to think that it is NOT a business & he is simply treating it that way.

    Cael cut him, he didn't quit.

    There is a FLO interveiw with Bubba he says he was doing everything he could to get a redshirt including not being elgible for fall semester. He felt Cael was not going to redshirt him so he went out of his way not to get to the weight Cael wanted him at. If I were the coach would have done the same thing. I understand Bubba felt he needed a redshirt year but this is not the way to do it . I think if he had tried given 100% and worked with the staff he may have gotten it now we will never know. That said I think Bubba has great potential and I wish him luck. It also takes alot of hard work!

    Cael did exactly what I wish I could do to everyone of those idiots you see on ESPN-he CUT him .Bubba intentionally missed weight at the Mat town Open -just to piss Cael off -it worked -I used to just not care -now I never want to hear this clowns name again .I do NOT care what the Penn State paper says after last years incident with Strayer /Baker-the ref penalized Strayer and warned him off that knee -the whistle blew and strayer tore Bakers knee to shreds -The Penn State paper said ''Strayer eliminated by bad call'' -BS-The Colts just had to cut a Penn State lineman they cut last year for being stoned -turns out they knew all about it -as did Papa JOE.
    I've kicked State champs and potential state champs out before -only after exhausting every other venue -just as I am sure Cael did .

    Jenkins seems like a classy guy. Hope he does well in the future.

    That was a bit of a off the cuff anti-penn state rant...

    Sure, maybe he intentionally pissed off cael, maybe he just didn't make weight. My point is, that on the vid, HE could have ranted & he didn't.

    I thought it was a classy interview considering his circumstances. Yeah, failing classes on purposes is pretty dumb, but I thought his attitude was pretty good for just getting cut.

    Most people wouldn't give an interview like that, saying nothing but positive things about everyone involved, right after they had been fired from their job.

    Sounded to me like someone who screwed up and wasn't going to talk bad about the people he had wronged.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    That may or may not be the case. In any event, the interview itself isn't bad.
