COLUMN: Worried about UW’s opt outs? Don’t be
LARAMIE -- Craig Bohl doesn't seem overly concerned about five of his players opting out of the 2020 season due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
You shouldn't be either.
You've been in this position before. Just last fall, in fact.
Raise your hand if you said any of the following phrases:
- Who the hell is Cole Godbout? Mario Mora? Esaias Gandy? Azizi Hearn?
- There's no way this Alijah Halliburton guy will be half as good as Andrew Wingard or Marcus Epps. He's a special teamer.
- Keyon Blankenbaker, whoever that is, is playing the nickel? He only weighs 170 pounds.
- Ravontae Holt is out for the year? Wonderful.
- Thank God for Logan Wilson, Cassh Maluia, Tyler Hall and Antonio Hull. But they can't do it alone.
- We're screwed.
How did that work out for you? And, yes, my hand was raised.
