Big East: Willie Williams Shadow

By Adam Caparell - July 18, 2006

Willie Williams - the talented, but disappointing linebacker from Miami who is looking to transfer - has surfaced here in Newport. Not in person, but in name. Sources here have said that Williams - who has looked at several Big East schools as a landing point - will not be given his release to Louisville, even though the Cardinals would love to have him. Apparently, Miami doesn't want to release Williams because they play Louisville Sept. 16 in Louisville, even though Williams would have to sit out this season because of transfer rules. Williams, according to published reports, looked into transferring to West Virginia, but coach Rich Rodriguez isn't exactly enticed with the possibility of bringing him on. It also may be a case where Miami is just looking to stick to the Big East, still apparently bitter over the whole legal proceedings regarding their departure to the ACC a few years ago.

Who from U of L said "even though they [Louisville] would love to have him"???

Even the U of L message boards have been overwhelming against taking him.

I think the author is speaking about the AD and coaching staff here (as the peops who want Willie). Nobody really cares what the message board fans think, it's college football.
