First let me say that Houston Coach is out of his mine. He never gave Tatum a chance to show what he could do. It was like the team didn't need a player of Tatum's size and talent. As for Dugat he showed what he could do. But let me tell you Tatum was not dismissed he quit 2 days before the announcement that he was dismissed. And Dugat had quit 2 weeks ago.There could not be two nicer or clean cut kids in all of Houston. SO COACH WERE THEY MAKING YOU LOOK BAD FOR QUITTING,because of the terrible coaches you hired? I've heard others were leaving also.

Are you kidding me, Daisey May? I don't know the Tatum kid but my son grew up with Dugat and he is like most outstanding athletes - made to feel that no rules ever applied to him! And he had that attitude! He didn't even graduate from Dayton! His parents pulled him out of Dayton with 2 weeks to go in his Senior Year because he hadn't passed the TAKS test and put him in a private school so he could get his diploma! All of it was completely unethical behavior! And it all caught up to him! I'm sure if they really did quit, it was because they knew they were gonna kicked off the team! I applaud Coach Sumlin for not putting up with that crap!! I say Good Riddance!
