Okay... apparently Furlong is taking some time to contemplate his status with the team. That's all I got. Such is the nature of rumors. TomahawkNation is committed to addressing rumors as they circle about the Seminole fan base. Keep in mind that we are hearing this, but it is not official. I've received several instant messages about this, all saying that Will Furlong has apparently quit the team. The red shirt sophomore guard struggled to put on weight, never cresting the 270lb mark. He was not in line to receive playing time. This is a good thing for the Seminoles. We often discuss the tough issues in college athletics and openly wondered if a 250lb guard fit into a supposedly elite college football team's plan was one of those topics. We want to avoid cutting players unless it is the only option, but elite teams find ways to shed dead weight (and a soon to be upperclassmen 3rd stringer would be dead weight). I expect to have at least 4 more transfers/ quits within the next 16 months. Furlong never caused trouble and seems to be a likable guy, so we thank him for his time as a Seminole and wish him well in his future endeavors. Keep in mind that FSU has NOT officially announced anything yet, so we will see if it does indeed come true.
