1. the whole ordeal is pretty sad, anti-climatic and unsatisfying. could have been a story-book ending for him.
2. OC chose to come to BYU. he knew, or at least was told what type of program Bronco runs. he also was RELEASED to transfer. many people are forgetting this key fact...and he CHOSE to stay. OC did. Bronco didn't force him. OC chose to stay and try to get back in good standing with the university AND Bronco.
3. Besides being accepted back into BYU and meeting those requirements I'm sure Bronco, as is his perogative as HC, set several other requirements for OC to regain the privilege to play on his football team. While the former were met, the latter were, obviously, not. Again, I have no doubt OC was told this BEFORE he made his decision to stay at BYU instead of transfer. OC knew what he was getting into and CHOSE to stay.
4. OC failed to meet the agreed to requirements.
5. Now, sadly, OC is not playing football for BYU. What would it do to Bronco's credibility as HC if he allowed a player, who has been given many chances over the years, to come back to the team after failing to meet the agreed upon criteria to rejoin? How could you lead, guide and discipline a team after that, knowing your players know that you won't enforce your own rules. (as kooky as they may seem at times).
Bronco and OC appear as compatible as Finngirl and a PC. They almost made it work. It's sad they didn't. But it's not Bronco's "fault" OC is not at fall camp, if it is anyone's "fault" it's OC's.
