This led to speculation that he was going to leave the team. With Houston transfer Charles Sims slated to start it would not be a shock to find out he was upset and thinking about heading elsewhere. As it turns out, that is not the case at all.
On Tuesday Head Coach Dana Holgorsen announced that Buie was going to red-shirt so that he could develop mentally and physically.
“He’s just going to develop mentally and physically and we’re going to leave it at that,” Holgorsen said. “He’s not going to play this year. He’s going to redshirt and I fully expect him to be ready to roll in the spring.”
Hmmm...the fact he mentioned 'mental' is going to lead to some speculation, but thanks to the season starting in just a few days against William and Mary it will likely become a forgotten story soon enough.
