    That said, I would welcome Moore back with that idea that he grew a pair and is 100% committed. I really don't want a guy who won't (not can't) play to his potential because he's preoccupied with day dreaming about being back home.
    It was mentioned he had "homesickness". We have no idea whether he "missed his mommy". Maybe he has a girlfriend or a child. We have no idea. Bottom line is that he left and really is none of our damn business. It was his decision. IMO, he should have been more upfront and consulted with the coaches. Now it is between him and Coach Rhoads.

    What if Moore's better than the back-up even while Moore's preoccupied and day dreaming?

    You have no idea why either left other than pure speculation. In fact, leaving your teammates hanging after you've been a starter at a position that is really thin, after 4 years in the program is a lot less honorable than someone who left after 2 months.

    I'd love to see you tell Devron Moore he missed his mommy to his face, tough guy.

    When he left they still had Coe and Irving. Cousin was playing well and they were going after JUCOs. Wouldn't call that position really thin at the time.

    He left because he is homesick. No speculation needed.

    I'd tell it to his face just like i'd tell it to yours, tough guy.

    I am sure someone here can find out if he has a hottie GF back home.

    He's homesick, what difference does it make? According to the coaches, that is the reason. Let's not make it more than what it is. No speculation required. And if he wasn't up front to begin with, then good riddance either way because that tells me he lacks the intestinal fortitude to at least be honest.

    This isn't some 18 year old fresh out of high school, so let's ditch the whole "there must be some other possible explanation" BS.

    I'd love for this kid to prove me wrong and I'll happily eat crow.

    Re: Devron Moore back in town?

    Most people with homesickness report a combination of depressive and anxious symptoms, according to Wikipedia.

    Just pointing that out because some people on here seem to fail to understand that the cause of said homesickness may be some legitimate issues.
