Morgantown, West Virginia – Two West Virginia football players took to social media today to air their grievances against coaches and the rigors of being a student-athlete.
Linebacker VanDarius Cowan said the following: “Coaches funny…be lying for no reason. Like we grown man be straight up.”
Senior wide receiver TJ Simmons, who has made some questionable decisions this season off the field, seemed to be more focused on the rigor of being a student-athlete but also went after his coaches, saying, “Imagine having practice, film, workouts, assignments due the night before games, and your coaches telling you it’s not that hard.”
Although both players have the right to express themselves on social media, they are upperclassmen that should know better than to question their coaches on social media.
