Sutton called Kellis back and Kellis updated his story.  He finished the spring with a 3.0 & dropped his summer classes.
If that's true, wtf KSU Cats!

I think some people upset at Corey are handling their catdom incorrectly.

I always hate the thought behind phrases like "once a wildcat, always a wildcat."  no!  that's not true.  mark mangino was a wildcat once.  was he in 2004?  I think you know the answer to that.

being a cat isn't a "blood in blood out" enterprise.  it's an affirmative decision we make every single day.  today, I will EMAW.  maybe i'll stop EMAW'ing tomorrow, but not today. 

if this Sutton fellow isn't a wildcat, he's not a wildcat, and we shouldn't force him to be because that, friends, is impossible.

Guys, tons of kids get homesick and depressed their freshman year. Our ad/coaches probably pull this scheme multiple times a year and 9 times out of 10 the player sticks around and finds their groove their second year and we never hear another word about it.

Unfortunately it seems like maybe we hold on too long sometimes too. Sutton should obviously get his release, but I really don't have a problem with our coaches giving a little pushback too.

This is and always will be a simple freaking decision: Let the kid go. So completely stupid to not release him. It looks terrible on the school and makes future recruits concerned about how they will be treated.

With coaching change being a looming concern, I don't think we need to send the message that we will hold transfers hostage.

Assuming this guy is eventually allowed to transfer or whatever and doesn't get mumped on the timing of it all, this is hilarious to be happening again.

Bill is probably trying to send a message to the kids already here that they had better not try to transfer away when Sean's coach.

yeah i don't really get it. the "best" result from k-state's point of view is that a kid who hates you now decides to stick around and play for you even though he will still hate the crap out of you and only make the team worse.

What I've been told from inside the team is that this is a grade issue and that is why they are holding his release. IDK why but I know I've heard in the past about us not releasing players who are not in good academic standing. Anyway this kid is headed for a JUCO somewhere in all likelihood because he had the worst grades on the team. Surprisingly really with his intellectual tweeting ability.

His mom says he had a 3.0, then says he never had worse than a C. Now I know he could have an A for each of those C's, but how amaze would it be if they didn't know how to calculate GPA and thought a C average was a 3.0? Much like time zones, GPA calculating can be confusing.

Sean is a gigantic dick about rules and regulations, hair length being one of them. Is it safe to say most of this is on Sean?

No, Cory is saying it's Bill, and he would probably know better than anyone.

Calculating GPA is about as weird & difficult to understand as how knees and ankles work, which is pretty damn complicated & confusing.

Some gems:

Quote
KSU football is literally on the edge of implosion. A senile old man with cancer who is on his way out as their coach but, the University won't move on because of his past achievements. The longer they keep propping his corpse up on the sideline the more he will inadvertently tarnish his own legacy. Use this opportunity with his current health for Old Balls to be shown the door with some grace, otherwise things won't be as rosey when he finally goes.

Quote
And the second comment to the article is from his uncle:

If I can speak freely as a concerned uncle, my family have all witnessed what has happened with Corey over the past year and a half. From what this experience intially meant to him and where he has found himself since making that committment to and spending the past year and a half at Kansas State.

What bothers me personally is that I see a young man who committed to, and threw his all behind that committment, only to discover that the "idea" of family that LHC Bill Snyder and the staff promote isn't family at all. That idea of family seems to have been lost within a dictator mentality because of how one man wants everyone to conform to his standards. Therefore, something as benign as the way someone wears their hair or what color of shoes and socks they walk around the building wearing, becomes a distraction. Not for the players, but for a man who has grown accustomed to getting his way.

It appears that Bill Synder speaks FOR the college and that there is little to no questioning his assumed authority over it all. It should not be that way. The doors should always remain open for students and student athlete's alike to speak for themselves, and to speak up for themselves.

I would like to ask LHC Bill Snyder, where is that idea of family? Did it get lost somewhere simply because a long tenured and successful coach within the schools history has his name plastered on the side of a stadium wall? Has his pride given him that dictator mentality to where he feels it is his place to coach up conformity, as opposed to embracing and encouraging individuality?

Beyond their capabilities on the football field, I believe there is little committment made towards knowing who these young men are. Therefore little to no understanding of what their backgrounds are, what their future aspirations may be, or in Corey's case, where his sense of well being is.

When I hear that my nephew has been going to counseling and I learn of a decision like the one that was made final today, that "idea" of family is no longer present when the care and concern for another human being is no longer acknowledged.

Perhaps there's rumors floating around SheepTown that they'll be playing for a different coach this fall???

I would send this out to every recruit in the midwest.

The purple board isn't taking it too well. A player speaks poorly of their "family" and they are all on board for ruining the dude's career. The KSU fanbase isn't full of kansas' best and brightest. Looks like one of them had to come over here and one star everything here to make them feel better. You think they would learn after the negative press they got for blocking Leti's transfer. At least they had a halfway decent reason for that.

Quote
Weird how it was OK for Chris Harper to transfer to KSU, but Sutton can't transfer out of KSU.

I bet if it was Saban instead of Snyder, people would do a 180.

What are the chances he's wanting to transfer to Charlotte? If that's the case, maybe weee not releasing him because we play them week 2. Seems weird to hold him even for that, but maybe that has something to do with it.

He asked for a release to 35 schools, none in the Big12 or on future schedules.  All 35 denied.
