Something stinks! Rob Patrick's comment about 2 players leaving from a 90+ player Florida football team being remotely comparable to 4 players transferring from a 16 player volleyball team is an absolute joke. Also, UT almost never grants releases - why did these 4 players get releases?
Kelsey Robinson is probably the best all-around player to ever play at UT. All 4 players transferring played a ton, so playing time is not the issue. Texas just won the national championship, and Nebraska is typically a Final Four team. These programs wouldn't want any part of players who are troublemakers.
There have been other transfers (1 or 2 per year) which have been chalked up to playing time or personality issues. There's also been a revolving door of assistant coaches.
The real question is how was this handled by AD Dave Hart. There's little doubt that Joan Cronan would have been all over it. With Dave Hart's general attitude towards women's athletics, was this something UT hoped to just sweep under the rug? Is Rob Patrick being asked the tough questions that need to be answered?
Something definitely stinks...
