    This I agree with. We seem to always know just how to kill off any momentum we may have at any point. It truly is a remarkable thing.

    There's some weird stuff going on. As of this past weekend every thing was looking pretty good. Someone is stirring the pot. Just really strange happenings with this stuff.

    Yep. He has never once chewed Will out.

    It is weird as hell how everything just went to hell in a matter of a few days. We need an AD in the worst way for damage control if nothing else. This has the possibility of getting completely out of hand. We are going to completely blow any momentum we had after the Egg Bowl if it keeps up.

    Leach shouldn't have said this shit, and DJ shouldn't have posted it under any circumstance for the sake of the team and program.

    Leave it us to continue our tradition of being the drama leader of college football.

    My guess is he told Leach he was going to the portal and Leach didn't beg him to stay. And that hurt Johnson's feelings.

    Leach is always saying the team needs to be more tough. Nothing new there.

    Also, you buy into what Leach is doing or you go. Simple as that.

    I don't know Dillon Johnson but I met him in the elevator of a friend's daughter's apartment after last year's Egg Bowl and he apologized to us for the game. Seemed like a sincere kid. I hate to lose him.
    If Mike Leach had publicly questioned his toughness I would have a big problem with it.
    I'm sure other coaches have said similar things to players when they tell them they are leaving the program.

    Fair enough. Pretty wild and not a good look. DJ is better than that

    My guess is that we shouldn't post whatever possibilities our imaginations are capable of conceiving. Insider info is great, "It could maybe possible be this" isn't.

    All we KNOW, is that most defensive players want to play another year here, while many offensive players don't. Same NIL funds, same university. There's no way Leach isn't at least some of the problem here imo

    I think it depends on if you want to stay loyal to your principles or not. This system is encouraging kids to be quitters and to care about themselves and no one else.

    I am for NIL. I am not for the portal in its current state. The IRS is going to come calling on all this before long. The government is going to get their share

    There are tons of players in the portal, from all over the country. Not many teams are losing major contributors/starters...and certainly not like this. DJ even got a retweet from RaRa telling him to "come with me".

    Sure, just blaming it on the players is easy, but that's some naive BS. Leach isn't above scrutiny. Something is clearly going on.
    There is 2 sides to a story. Leach is not going to give in. He is going to stand by who he is. He is far from a POS. He believes in doing things the right way. And I understand you may think the right way is a different way. The TTU deal was just wrong on TTUs part and that was proven in court. He is not a saint however but neither are these kids. This stuff is definitely pushing no accountability. Not a great value in my opinion.

    That could not be further from the truth. These takes kill me. Leach chews his ass all the time about changing to a run. But I know you guys will say im lying or defending Will. Just know, that is just blatantly false

    Hoo boy. How many times will we hear about this on the sports talk circuit. And no one in place to do damage control.

    Sure wish DJ had someone close to him to counsel "take the high road". Now because of one immature misstep, this thing will live in the public domain forever.

    Mike Is in the SEC. This is big boy country. His "principles" are 2nd to our program.

    This is a terrible look for all involved. Leach, DJ, the football program. No one looks good in this situation. Outside of our fan base, DJ far and away looks the worst, but Leach does not look great. Inside our fan base, depending on how you feel about Leach, Leach either looks worse or they are both at fault.

    Depends on what his principles are. And if he sticks with them, then up to MSU to decide if they can accept that.

    I mean ... AU just hired Hugh Freeze.

    Well I can tell you he is 0 tolerance for stealing hitting women missing class or drugs. We hope none of those applied to DJ. But he is not going to coddle anyone. Those are pretty good principles in my opinion
