    Sorry, but this has home sick written all over it.

    Why leave now? He was 2A/2B with Ameer, heading into his sophomore season. After one more season, he'd have every chance to be the clear cut number one back. He would've had solid reps this season, and two more seasons as a potential every-down back.

    If he wants more playing time, sitting a year for a transfer doesn't make sense. Green didn't even want to red shirt.

    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."

    It doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty. What matters is you have a glass that has something in it. Some people have no glass, or have a glass with nothing in it. So appreciate all that is in your life and quit questioning whether your glass in half full or half empty.

    I believe there IS far more to this than we know...but, I don't believe it has anything to do with being home sick.

    If he was homesick he had a brother on the team he could have turned to.....this is a touches issue and you cant touch the ball on the sidelines

    Let's hope Rex has a healthy senior season. I wish Green the best, I hope he's put lots of thought into this choice.

    Yep. Not buying the homesick argument. I always got the impression he couldn't get over not being the man like he was in high school. Seeing guys he played in high school have success as freshman didn't help I'm sure

    I think you are correct. He sees Bo pushing Rex for the Heisman and he gets to split carries as second banana. It doesn't appeal to him.

    I hope it isn't because they were thinking of switching him to cornerback.

    If it's playing time, I don't understand the thought process to sitting out a year for transferring. Kid wants to play now? I don't see the bench for a year as a great option, personally.
