    In his best interests, Forrest has decided to take his athletic talents elsewhere.

    The headline writer seems to have a different definition of "explained" than I do.... :huh:

    My translation: We cut him, so we are not going to talk ill of him, and we want to help him find a good spot somewhere else.

    Help the kid move on and find a good situation. I'm glad that Embree decided to take the high road and attempt to end the negative talk about West.

    Sometimes people find themselves in organizations and it's a bad fit.

    I wish Forrest West all the best in his journey. It was fun watching him begin to blossom with the BnG.

    So did West willingly leave the program?
    That's how I interpreted it.

    wait...the high road is cutting a player, thus ridding him of the opportunity to graduate with a college degree because didn't fit the system?

    Forgive me, but maybe I haven't been as on top of this situation, but what am i missing?

    Well he came to school on a football Scholarship so if he's not on the team why would he stay on scholarship unless it was a medical reason where another player could get it who is still on the football team.
