    Aaron Green to Transfer

    http://nebraska.rivals.com/default.asp

    Best of luck to the young man, sorry to see him go before he had a chance to mature.

    Green Transferring

    I think its paid content, but the headline is all you really need. Sean Callahan is reporting it.

    Going off the discussion in the recruiting forum looks like they'll be looking to take two backs now.

    Too bad. I really thought he was gonna develop into somethin special this year. From his comments since he's been here I always got the impression he had a hard time transitioning from being the man in high school...just my interpretation though.

    Good luck to him and I hope it works out for him. Tough to lose him though.

    Unless he's earned a spot in the two deep, absolutely.

    And then there were two (ex-freshmen) running backs.

    Not the kind of stuff you like to see happen. Talent leaving feeling like they are being misused.

    And you would know he felt "misused" how exactly? Since when does the "talent" get to determine how they are used??
    I cried because I had no shoes until I saw a man that had no feet.

    Maybe underused...you choose the wording. Truth is we just lost an extremely talented running back for no other reason that he felt like he was not being given an opportunity to play, even when games were long decided. This is one area that Bo could learn a lesson from Tom. Maybe he wasn't good enough...we'll see. You can be there will be a fair number of BCS schools lining up to take a chance on him.

    Can't hardly blame him since our coaches seem unwilling to let anyone other than the starters play (see Taylor and Rex) at key positions.

    If you counted up all the RB carries last year that weren't Rex, it wasn't a bad number for a backup, but to divide that number by three meant someone was going to feel shorted.

    Guess so, 24 carries for a big time Texas recruit evidently isn't very satisfying. Oh well, we did get Rex the record for most carries in a game (even if he just came in to kneel for it).

    Green, often the more outspoken of the two friends, has been antsy to begin this season since the end of last season. The five-star recruit from San Antonio got just 24 carries and one reception last year. Abdullah got 42 combined carries and catches. Burkhead got 305.
    "I felt like I should have played more last year," Green said. "I knew I was good enough. It was frustrating. Out of my control. So I just prayed about it. And in the offseason — every squat rep, every bench rep — I was thinking about getting on the field. And what I would do. I was really motivated to improve. Catching. Running routes. Running outside. Running inside. Everything."

    Evidently, he thought he was in for another year of it as a true sophomore and wasn't putting up with it. You have to admit, we worked Superman to near death last year. I can still remember him limping back into the game for yet another carry. Very reminiscent of the way we kept playing Helu when he was hurt (2008 or 9?) and TM in 2010.
