    Sorry if this has been discussed ad naseum elsewhere, I wasn't as up-to-date with my info going into this game as I have been for the previous 200 games.

    Why didn't Givens dress for this one? Injury? Other?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know, but several posters, including pissbomber, have said it is personal - not academic or disciplinary. As curious as I am, I'm going to try to respect the young man's privacy.

    FWIW, Bryce was on the sidelines in street clothes.

    I saw him on the sidelines and he didnt seem pissed or anything, so I'm hopeful he'll be back soon. Maybe he's got crabs or a sever casae of jock itch or something else embarassing they just dont want to talk about. As long as he's back soon I wont worry.

    TBH, I hope we never find out in an article and how he "bounced back" or something similar. I hope it isn't that serious.

    Nonetheless, I'm hoping he battles back and starts kicking ass.

    Any possibility that he is one of the players thinking of transferring?

    I remember their being rumors of certain high caliber players transferring.

    Those weren't rumors. Those were planted stories by the anti-Hawkins hysterical groups. My concerns with Givens are not transfer but will he play at all.

    I just feel bad for him. I hope that he gets through whatever the issue is unscathed and continue with his life with or without football.

    CU is 2-0 with Givens out of the lineup.

    Not sure there's any kind of correlation there, just sayin'.

    I don't think there is one. CU would still win against Wyoming with Givens playing, and CU wins/loses the KU game based on the QB, not Givens IMO. Givens/Hansen in? We still win. Without Givens and with Cody? We lose. Of course, this is just my opinion and like 99.9% of what we all post here, can have no for sure solid facts to back it up.

    Yep. I keep trying to rack my brain about what could possibly be the cause of this. "Personal reasons?" All I can think is that the kid has cancer or something... But then why was he ok to play vs TX?

    I have thought a lot about what it could be also but in reality as long as he is not doing something immoral or that could damage the reputation of the program and/or the university it is really none of our business. I certainly hope that it is not a lifethreatening or long term illness for him or anyone close to him.

    By all indications he is a very high quality guy who is liked and respected by his teammates, coaches and the others around him. As long as he wants to keep his situation private I vote to respect that and only say that I wish him the best possible outcome whether that includes returning to the team or not.
