Seams Legit: University of Tennesee linebacker Quart’e Sapp quit midgame

I blame Vontae Davis. Just want that to be known

How does this thought seriously cross this guy’s mind for one second?

I think if you polled about 80% of all college athletes they’d probably admit they’ve thought about quitting before, but mid-game, where everyone can see it? And I still think of that 80% only about 2% actually pulls the trigger — and that 2% is my max, no shot there are THAT many people who quit. And of that 2%, probably 0.1% quit mid-game. (YAY NUMBERS!)


Upon some further review, it appears Sapp technically wouldn’t fall under that 0.2%. Or he at least quit after he got a little nudge. Here‘s what Tennesse coach Jeremy Pruitt said after the game:

“Since I’ve been here, Quart’e has been a very good ambassador for the game, done everything we’ve asked him to do. He left the field during the game because he wouldn’t go into the game when he was asked to go in. I don’t know how things were done before but when you tell someone to go in, they refuse to go in, we aren’t going to do that around here. I asked him to leave. He didn’t leave on his own, I asked him to leave.”

That makes a lot more sense. Still a strange move by Sapp, but it makes a lot more sense than him just running off the field out of nowhere.

I still don’t expect most NFL teams to consider bringing him in, in the future.
