College football is truly an incredible sport. The fact a player just quit the team in the middle of a game is laugh-out-loud funny.
Imagine looking over at the secondary bench, calling Foster’s number and then realizing he wasn’t even there anymore.
It’s so funny, and it’s a classic college football situation.
At the same time, how the hell is Herman going to let this guy stay on the team? Are you kidding me? Nobody will ever take Herman seriously again if Foster remains on the roster.
You simply can’t allow a kid to quit in a game and then keep playing for you. You can’t let it happen.
Herman will lose all credibility if Foster ever steps on the field again for Texas. He’s going to be a joke among his players.
