It was a frustrating season for Houston's defender Ed Oliver. After choosing an American consensus as a sophomore in 2017, he announced before the season that he was planning to leave to the NFL after the youth campaign, with a knee injury on Oct. 20, against the Navy. He hasn't played since then and in the game against Tulane on Thursday night, ESPN's cameras started arguing with Cougars Coach Major Applewhite, first of all, on the side line with a coat.
Just before the first peninsula, Applewhite told Oliver to take out a heavy team team reserved for active players. As the team went into the locker room, Oliver's words for his coach had to be restricted by Rod Grace, the director of sports performance of the team.
Oliver did not return for the second round and was not presented to reporters after the match, according to the Houston Chronicle. Meanwhile, Applewhite tried to play the event.
Göre It's emotional, but young and what's going on, genç according to the Associated Press. “And not playing. That's difficult. That's difficult. I don't expect anything against anyone. I'm just going to visit him with him. I love him. I want him to be part of our team. I want him with our team. "
Applewhite added that he told other inactive players to remove the coats. The AP said it was about 50 degrees during the game.
“I'm trying to be fair,“ he said.
Oliver is expected to be the top 10 in the next year's draft, but landed on Wednesday's Mel Kiper's last Big Board number 2 to # 7. Considering that he has already announced his intention to go to the NFL, he must consider that he is heavily above his knee injury: on October 20, Navyalans offensive line during the game is dealing with an obvious and non-penalized chop.
Oliver's knees were far from being targeted against aggressive primers for the first time. Last season I experienced an MCL sprained in a low block against the temple.
Houston is closing the regular season in Memphis on November 23, and will play in the AAC title game if one and the SMU have lost one of their last two games. However, considering everything that took place this season, even though Oliver has continued to reveal something, Applewhite says that the door is open, but no one should be surprised.
"We're always ready to come back," he said.
