Apparently he had a 25 minute interview with local news as well.

If the injury thing is true, that's pretty bad.

But a lot of the vitriol about "emotional abuse and manipulation" was very whiny. Undertones of entitlement didn't help either.

Exactly. He may be right, but do it without making a total bitch out of yourself and ruining the reputation of a great coach.

"For the record, here’s a list of manipulation tactics you’ve managed to use against me in the time I’ve been playing for you"

Cute, he bought a "I am special" book and copied and pasted definitions. Kid wouldn 't have lasted a minute on any of the legendary coaches teams. I swear the entitled, look at me generation...

Wait 10 years when he is working some $30,000 a year job and see how he feels about the mean coach then.

Not totally defending him but a lot of crap goes on behind the scenes of NCAA athletics.

hmm weird. I'm going to coach for Minnesota strength next year so we'll see haha.

I played under Paul Rhoads at Iowa State and no one EVER complained about anything with him. He was a tough coach but never EVER had problems like this.

Goes to show that things do happen behind the scenes, but things like this do not have to happen.

I have no idea who this kid is, but the one thing I do know is that he seriously needs to be punched in the face. What a whiney entitled little puke he is. People like this pathetic POS are what are ruining this country.

He is the only receiver, unfortunately, on the team that knows how to run a route and catch a pass, played well in a couple games, sprained his ankle, and missed three straight games.

My first name begins with an A and my middle name begins with a J and my last name is Barker. When I saw this thread title I was like, "Da fuq did I do?"

And what about the condescending tones you have. Not saying he should be satisfied with his $30,000 a year job, but I provided for my family for nearly six years making less than that and was just fine. I'm past it now but the way you are looking down on the working class is no better than the entitlement this kid may be showing

Just because you make more money than someone else doesn't mean your a better person

I believe Kill needs to go. Just fold the Gophs team. They are always so bad and have so much drama, it's not worth it. What a trainwreck ...

Making this public is a bitch move. I quit reading halfway through it because I had zero sympathy for someone who tries to gain sympathy by airing out private laundry, Yet comes across as a sniffling child while doing so.

I'd hate to see this kid under one of the 'big dog' coaches in college football's glory days.. Or even now under Spurrier or Saban etc...
Get over yourself kid

this kid sounds like a p*$$y to me. I was done reading after the first paragraph.

This kid and Royce White would probably be best friends if they met.

I totally agree with this statement. I started reading the first few paragraphs and wanted to reach through my computer screen and slap this little punk. I am sure his parents did a wonderful job of telling him his whole life that he is their special little angel who can do whatever he wants in life, regardless of consequence.

I'll make sure I tell him this, after he asks me if I would like fries with that.

I didn't even know the Gophers still had a football team. I thought that new stadium was for the Vikings.

Guess I'm in the minority on this one. From what I read, Coach Kill seems like a guy that I wouldn't want to play for. Good for you, AJ Barker.

I'm sure most people wouldn't but to type a letter explaining how the coach called him a poo poo head and a dumb dumb is a bitch move. Sorry, this just sounds like a bitch and moan complain fest by this kid. Yes, the coach is a douche bag. But quit bitching like this.
