Leaving hoops team, will stay at VT
It's not that you are ignorant, it's just that you know so much that isn't so.
I do agree with you that he probably didn't have the heart/passion/drive to either play the sport anymore or provide the level of dedication that was required from him. When I decided to walk away from playing an organized sport, I needed to wrestle with it for a semester before knowing it was the right decision and being at peace with it.

No trees were harmed in the making of this post. However, billions of electrons were horribly inconvenienced.
Most of the 'internal basketball team' issues is between the coach and the players. I really respect JJ for keeping it between rankin and himself and taking the high road and not letting this get into the media or much worse the Message board environment. THey are working it out; Rankin appears to be getting a degree and moving on with life. Its really tough on JJ as well, because lets be frank, his position is shaky, and he's making the TOUGH calls…..
I agree about keeping it between coach and player. His bio said he missed a game last year due a family matter. I suspect that same issue is still there but much worse now. I have a couple of things in mind but prefer not speculationg on a message board. You can do your own speculating. There are things in life that can really drag you down.
