The news broke earlier Thursday that, amidst significant speculation, Kyler Murray had decided to transfer from Texas A&M, with the decision being labeled as “final.” The football program followed that up with a 17-word statement on the 2015 four-star quarterback being granted his release.
Just which direction either the player or the team takes moving forward remains to be seen — the former could very well be toward baseball, the latter possibly looking for a head coach if the growing talk of the NFL/JFF acronyms has any legs — but Murray decided to take to Twitter in the here and now after his departure became official to thank Aggie Nation and say his social media goodbyes.
In that tweet, Murray mentions he wishes nothing but the best for his now-former teammates. At least one current Aggie, though, mentioned a word, entitlement, that has been used more than once in describing the behind-the-curtain circus that was rumored to be the brief Murray Era in College Station.
UPDATED 8:52 p.m. ET: I just wanted to add this tweet from former A&M defensive lineman Jay Arnold, who was forced to retire from football earlier this year because of injury issues while with the Aggies. And who also busted out the “e” word when it came to the news of the day in College Station.
