    I for one am glad they both found a place to play which is I'm sure what both wanted to do. Congratulations to both.

    He wasn't dismissed. His scholarship simply wasn't renewed for his fifth (fourth?) year. Same with Young.

    I thought Earl was kicked off the team for a legal issue?

    He had a legal issue earlier, but both he and Young weren't renewed because they weren't expected to contribute as seniors.

    I suppose someone could search for the threads....er, someone not usernamed "Aclone".

    With only seventeen scholarship seniors, that may happen again about this time next year.

    Re: 2 Cyclone player's that were released last year

    Earl could really hit. I'd keep him alone for special teams. Young wasn't cut out to be a Big XII WR.

    I actually worked with Earl last summer and I was wondering how he did this year. Thanks for posting.

    Re: 2 Cyclone player's that were released last year

    Earl did a hell of a job for the Mavs this year! He really helped out our young secondary. And led us to the National Semi-Finals.

    Re: 2 Cyclone player's that were released last year

    Both were decent players. Not starter material, but decent backups. I don't have an issue with them wanting to go somewhere they can actually play for their SR year. And I don't blame CPR for removing some dead weight from the roster. Unfortunately, that's part of the business.

    In hindsight, it may have been nice to have these guys after Watson and Givens were injured and we had Stokes starting at CB and that walkon at safety.
