“There was some stuff going on throughout the team that made it kind of a bad environment for me,” Kirby said. “It made it seem like (certain players) didn’t really care about winning and they were just there for the gear. They loved being a ‘Duck player.’ I have goals ... and felt like transferring to a place like BYU would probably be best for me if I want to reach those goals.”
"Kirby said his roommates, who he did not name but said were teammates on the football team, partied and smoked marijuana regularly. Kirby said because of his choice to abstain from the party scene, he felt he was unable to do much at home besides watch Netflix in his bedroom."
"Kirby also said a desire to be closer to Pocatello swayed his decision. He asked recently hired Oregon head coach Willie Taggart for permission to speak with BYU and Utah, but Taggart declined to let Kirby contact Utah because the Utes are Oregon’s Pac-12 counterparts."http://www.idahostatejournal.com/member ... c1de9.html
