After an excellent freshman year in the ACC, Mr. Hines transferred to Yale as a quite legitimate scholar-athlete. He suffered two serious injuries on the football field at Yale in each of his next two years. He has nothing of which to be ashamed and should not be criticized by those without knowledge of his circumstances.

This article came out less than 10 days ago.

If something happened to cause such an about-face and make Hines leave the team, people are naturally curious to hear what it was.

I just read the Courant article about Hines. Two theories about his curious withdrawal from the program:

(1) The article says that he plans to attend law school. Is it possible that he wants to maintain an extra year of eligibility to play at, say, Stanford or Michigan? Maybe go back home to play for the Tar Heels or Duke.

(2) He just got married. Women, amirite?

There really are two possibilities:

1) He was jerking the Harford Courant (and the Yale football staff) around and was thinking about hanging it up the entire time or

2) Something happened in the last ten days that warranted his leaving the team.

I'm sure everyone wishes him the best, but more than a few of us probably want to know why he's no longer with the team.

I have nothing against the kid but it does make for great material on the board after all he was a "highly touted" transfer. I also like to at every opportunity call the coach Tony Romo. Yalies might find it annoying but it makes me laugh every time I do it

Sounds like he just wants to focus on other things. That tends to happen as guys mature, and set their sights on meaningful pursuits. While I don't know all of his history it is a familiar theme for student athletes to "retire" instead of continuing to let their body take a beating in football.
