    Bottom line is they didn't think he was good enough and after a 2 win season I don't blame them. He earned his shot and apparently didn't do good enough. Based on prior NDSU history, I think Bohl has a history of treating his players fairly so I tend to believe him.

    Did anyone ever find out what happened with Kenny Burns, and why Bohl got rid of him? Not much for info at the Wyoming board.

    Yeah I wonder if it had anything to do with our alleged missing recruiting files.

    They played him primarily in 2014 but not much in 2015. My understanding is this year he had to work a job to pay his way in college, and likely wasn't able to put the time in Bohl expected or required. Doesn't bode well for any walk-on that needs to work their way through college, but I can understand that may be a reality of today's college football. There is another player, Tanner Gentry, who had a career ending injury, and his parent reported that Wyoming has treated him very well. So I am guessing it is mostly about the time (or lack of) Tutein was able to dedicate to the program.

    So the kid is good enough to see the field this year but not good enough to remain on the team? A walk on that is playing in front of scholarship players but not good enough to get a scholarship? Seems strange doesn't it?

    You dont miss Football time for work. Plus I have never known anyone to work during the season. Something doesnt smell right.

    It was goofy. If what the kid was saying is true, he was told if he did his time, put in the work, he would get a scholarship. He did all that and didn't get a scholarship. He then had to get a job or would be living on the street. It isn't right he counted on something that wasn't a sure thing, but he also had to do what he had to do. If he was in fact told those things and he thought he lived up to them and was getting a scholarship, then there was a lack of communication between him and the coaching staff. There seems to be some fault all around here, but the young man should learn not to count on anything until you have it in your hands. If he was led to believe he was in line for a scholarship, there is certainly failure among the coaches for not being very clear about what their objective was with him. Yes he is an adult, but part of the learning process should be making decisions with all the information in front of him. It sounds like both parties in this were not very clear with each other.

    Hopefully they all learn from this. This young man certainly learned some valuable lessons. Whether he appreciates them right now or not is another story. New recruits will hopefully learn about this story and make sure they have the vision of the coaching staff very clearly in front of them when they make decisions. Hopefully the coaching staff realizes the importance of laying out their objectives to each student/athlete and giving them attainable goals or letting them loose. If I am being told I accomplish A,B, and C and the return by meeting those goals are D,E, and F there better be a conversation well before 20 other things having to fall in place fall apart because the rug got pulled out. That is why CB is paid the big bucks, to make sure these individual cases don't fall between the cracks.
