JR Hasty Leaves the Team

It came to light today that JR Hasty has left the other team to pursue more playing time elsewhere. That means a free for all with the next Spring for the starting tailback job. Youth will also be served in the Fall when the Huskies bring in another crop of RB's.

Hasty never really got it while he was a Husky due to injury, academics, and conditioning issues.

James Sr has some comments in the PI

Under adversity your true character shows, and under a little adversity JR Hasty quit on his teammates in mid season. Good luck in the future JR.

JR wasn't going to be a factor at RB next year. I would have liked to see him at LB, or Safety, but he has it in his head that he is a RB. I think he is a step to slow for the Pac Ten.

It certainly is a hot-button issue with some. It happens. The media is behaving entirely predictably as well. I don't think it's that big a deal, but those with agendas will. It kind of makes me wonder if there's a bit of pressure from elsewhere driving the defections. I'd better shut up before I start sounding like a treasonous political party or a major media source.

The groundswell for the fire Ty movement has started...he needs to win the next two games to settle everyone down.

I don't know what to think regarding the whole Husky situation anymore. I'll be in he stadium tomorrow wondering if the team shows up or not. Watching this defense is killing me. Watching Jake and tailgating are the fun parts of current game days

Hasty leaving is no surprise, he has the same problem as a lot of Husky fans: impatience and unreasonable expectations. Both Hasty and his father seem to have quite a sense of entitlement. But that's the way our whole culture is going. Kosub leaving surprised me more, since it seemed like he would be playing a lot next year. When Bush left, I only wondered what took him so long. Bottom line, good riddance to guys who don't want to be there, just creates more spots for better players and perhaps more mentally tough "young men" as Ty likes to say. And so far Ty's recruiting seems good -- no, the players' national star rankings aren't as high as we might like, but on the other hand, how many five-star recruits played for Boise State last year? Or four-star?

Losing Hasty doesn't bother me, losing three years of investment in Hasty does.
