well this is now all over the place... who knows if it is true but it's on message boards and emails..... personally, there is some smoke in this. that is my opinion..
I understand the Internet is a neverending cess pool of misinformation. At the risk of being branded another Internet Rumor starter, I promise the following story is how I heard it and what I believe to be true:
A good friend of mine is the uncle of Matt Boss, the guard who quit K-State today.
Prince kicked his whole starting offensive line out of practice on Monday, and told them not to come back until Thursday.
Thomas Clayton and some of the seniors questioned why Prince kicked those guys out of practice because all they did was jump before the ball was snapped during drills. Clayton was then demoted to third team for challenging Prince. Gerald Spexarth then questioned Prince for demoting Clayton, and Spexarth was told not to return until next Monday.
While this whole fruckus was occuring, Boss was in the training room receiving treatment for a seperated shoulder. Unaware of the suspensions, Boss returned to the practice field with his arm in a sling.
Prince immediately grabbed Boss, apparently ripped off his sling and proceeded to call him a "f....n p....y" over and over. Prince allegedly stopped practice and then put Boss in the middle of the whole team and said something to the effect of...."This is why Baylor kicked our ***, because we have f....n p....ies like this guy on our team."
Prince made these remarks while pointing to Boss. Boss then went back in the lockeroom, put on his pads, and practiced in intense pain. The trainers told Coach Prince that Boss was unable to practice, and Prince allegedly berated the trainers.
Prince picked on Boss the rest of the practice and more players tried to defend him. Those teammates who came to Boss's aid were kicked out of practice. Prince then proceeded to talk about how his players will play through pain and not be "f....g p.....s" like Boss.
Monday night, Boss called his parents in tears. He told them what had happened and they told him to stick it out and suck it up, but they knew something was wrong with him. All he ever wanted to do was play football for K-State. He was a 4-Star recruit and a freshman starter last season.
Tuesday, Matt again called in tears, he couldn't move his arm but he didn't want to be humiliated by Prince again.
His parents finally decided to come see him. When they saw Matt, they noticed the obvious 2 inch bump where his collarbone was clearly unattached from his clavicle. They demanded a meeting with Prince, but he reportedly was to busy breaking down film. His parents were sick of being made to wait so they told the receptionist Matt was quitting the football team and they were taking him home.
Bill Snyder's son, who is Director of Football Operations or something like that for K-State signed Boss's release and they were never allowed to meet with Prince. When Boss asked to retrieve his stuff from the locker room he was told, "Only K-State football players and staff are allowed in the locker room. We'll send you your stuff.
Boss is so upset right now, he's considering quitting football altogether. His family is trying to convince him otherwise.
I hate this story because my buddy and his family are really upset about everything. This whole family is a bunch of hard-working farmers. They are not the kind of people who challenge authority or spoil their kids. However, they are all very ****** off because Prince decided to humilate Matt in order to demonstrate a dumb power trip over his football team. Matt had never been singled out before, and Prince had barely talked to Boss since arriving on campus. Boss had never been disciplined for any off the field problems and he was a good student. Prince seriously just threw Boss under the bus to show his mutinous football team who was in charge.
The ship is sinking in Manhattan, and Boss will not be the last one to go.
