If UAB was in the SEC, Jackie would have to be arrested & charged with a felony just to be suspended, like those three players for Arkans... oh, wait... umm?

So no one really knows why? Other than it might be drug related?

I don't think anyone here really knows that, it might be anything.

I hope this doesn't cause some deep rift or rebellion on the team.

The team really needs to shut up about this on twitter. I thought people knew better.

Ahhh twitter!!
Fueling speculation and turmoil since its inception.

Whatever it is the kid "did" or possibly "didn't" do, its done now. So time to move forward there's nothing to see here.

Interesting highlights from twitter:

Taylor Klein ‏@TaylorMKlein 6h
It's great to see our football team rally around @_himOVERthere15 . Lets get this petty crap solved, and focus on the goal. #beattroy

L.T ‏@FLEURdeTRICE 9h
The UAB athletics supporters are so hot and cold.

Still Mr. I G♢t This ‏@_KingdomKome 9h
How you got this man on the schedule, tickets, and banner but dismiss him? #JackSparrow
Retweeted by Jackie Williams

KKNupes ‏@UAB_GucciNupes 9h
Woah, after that news we will pause the foolery ... Stay up @_himOVERthere15, UAB kant keep you down. Minor setback for a major komeback.

Still Mr. I G♢t This ‏@_KingdomKome 9h
So @UABathletics will never be the same. @_himOVERthere15 was the reason people came to games anyways. Stands really gone be empty now

Maybe if he straightens out whatever he has done wrong, then he might could come back. A close friend of mine with a landscaping business is always saying "The best way to motivate my employees is to fire the best worker for something, the rest get the message".
The one position I think we could afford to lose a player at is wide receiver. I hope whatever Jackie did wrong is correctable for his and the team's sake.

I agree

True, but guess what kid, we'll still be here after a 9-3, 6-6, or 3-9 season.

It had to be a reason. Usually when someone does something wrong they only see their side. But I hope it gets worked out.

KKNupes ‏@UAB_GucciNupes 9h

So who's to blame? UAB, Coach, or Jackie?

Uhmmm, I come to see the team play, and hopefully win. I couldn't pick this kid out in a line up with a name tag on his shirt. Stands till gonna have the same amount of folks until we win, with or without.

After reading these tweets and some post this is ridiculous.
My apologize if it upsets some folks, but really. I know these kids put a lot out on the field, but don't think that you are bigger than the program. We are all cogs in the machine and when you don't do what you are suppose to do, you get removed and replaced.
I know some folks think you can't or shouldn't question the coach, but it's gonna happen. When you invest money (tickets, gas, merchandise,donations) and time into something you feel vested and just want a little clarity. With that said, the man was hired to do a job and his job is to win games and build this program. So if he ruffles a few feathers to get the desired end results, as long as its ethical and reasonable, who am I to judge.

There are a lot of really good reasons not to follow college kids on twitter.

I submit this thread as exhibit A.

Seriously, though. Those guys are my kids' peers. And 40+ sometimes has a hard time remembering how 19 -21 thinks.

RE: Jackie Williams is gone
he broke the rules and got kicked off the team. it sucks but its his fault. im proud be support a team that would do this. unlike texas a & m that is going to start a player they know is breaking ncaa rules because they think it cant be proven. I like our head coach a lot more today knowing this.

RE: Jackie Williams is gone
Twitter makes my FN head hurt.

I have no idea what happened, but we have to give coach the benefit of the doubt here... Otherwise the whole damn construct breaks. Wild speculation, ephemeral tweets, and personal sources undisclosed amount to jack n' squat.

"There is no 'I' in team". But on the other hand, if there is something wrong with our coach then we'll know it at the very least by the end of next season anyway. A good coach is the embodiment of knowledge, resourcefulness, motivation, and perhaps above all, JUSTICE.

A team's product on the field speaks to these qualities of its coach and cannot speak without them.

RE: Jackie Williams is gone
I just don't see CGM running our best WR off with no cause. I have no idea what happened and don't care to speculate. There must have been something required of Jackie (and the rest of the team) that the coach thought was important and Jackie didn't treat as all that important.

Guess who wins that argument?
