07:28 AM ET 08.30 | After rushing for more than 800 yards in 2012, Andrew Buie has decided not to spend his future in Morgantown. [Buie] has withdrawn from West Virginia University, the Office of the Registrar confirmed Thursday afternoon. Buie, a junior running back who led the Mountaineers with 851 rushing yards and seven touchdowns last season, slid down the depth chart this month, and West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen announced Tuesday that Buie had elected redshirt this fall. Holgorsen said Buie needed to "develop both mentally and physically" during his redshirt season and would return in the spring with two years of eligibility remaining. "He had to make some decisions," Holgorsen said Tuesday. "Did we force him to redshirt? No." ... Buie, no longer enrolled at West Virginia, is expected to transfer.

"Develop...Mentally"?

Never thought that was a prerequisite at West VA.

If mental development were a prereq at WVU, Dana Holgorsen would have to take a redshirt as well.

I come from a long line of Appalachian hillbillies (SW Virginia). We can play the dozens as well as anyone. Holgorsen pitched one over the plate; just couldn't resist.
