Our best wishes to Kansas starting linebacker Huldon Tharp, who’s giving up football due to repeated injuries in service of the game. The university announced Tharp’s decision on Monday; Tharp himself offered the following statement:

“Physically my body just can’t hold up anymore. I love KU and have enjoyed my time being a part of the football program. Thanks to Coach Weis’ encouragement I am going to graduate this summer and head out into the real world. I want to thank Coach Weis and the entire KU football staff for all that they have done for me,” said Tharp. “They have treated me very well and I definitely see bright days ahead for this program.”

Tharp would have had one more season of eligibility to play college ball.
