OU football player quits team, joins Marines

Freshman offensive lineman Britt Mitchell quit the team and joined the Marines last week.

Mitchell had enrolled in January and had begun summer conditioning with S&C coach Jerry Schmidt.

If he thought Jerry Schmidt was an asshole...

Dudes quit football all the time for whatever reason. Maybe they couldn't find the right shoes. Maybe they just lost their desire to play.

A friend of mine played football at Texas Tech in the early '90s. After watching the movie Navy SEALS, a teammate of his quit the team and joined the Navy with hopes of becoming a SEAL. Like Charlie Sheen.
