Ohio State Football Player Quits Team During Team's Game Against Akron
© Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports
Toward the end of the first half against Akron on Saturday night, Ohio State linebacker K’Vaughan Pope reportedly threw his gloves into the stands, stormed off the field and quit. Per Lettermen Row...

After trying to run out on the field in a substitution package in the second quarter on Saturday night against Akron, the senior linebacker was waved off by teammate Teradja Mitchell. Once getting back to the sideline, a visibly upset Pope started walking down the sideline by himself and was heading back to the locker room on his own.

Eventually he was corralled by Buckeyes staffer C.J. Barnett in the south end zone, and Pope was guided back to the sideline. Once there, though, Pope took off his gloves and threw them into the stands and began removing his Ohio State jersey — which apparently caught the attention of coach Ryan Day. After another conversation with multiple staffers, Pope was then led to the locker room while the game was ongoing.

I wonder if he understands that you do not get to collect unemployment for quitting the football team...

He'll probably get a Stimulus Check from Biden!

Given the unusual application of the letter “K” in his own name, you would think he would gladly use a “K” in all spellings where appropriate.

Why is he allergic to the letter "K"?

I can’t say I disagree with his thoughts about Ohio state.
