As if getting knocked out of a game due to a head injury wasn't bad enough, Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson has since had to watch his team get upset by Louisiana-Monroe, drop from No. 8 all the way out of the top 25 and now get shut out by conference-rivals Alabama. It's safe to say that Wilson has had enough.
After Wilson had to watch his team get demolished by the Crimson Tide, he marched into the press conference room, didn't take any questions and told the media his team quit.
"Do I feel that we, at times, gave up out there? Yeah, absolutely. As a leader, it sucks to see people not do their jobs and things go wrong," said Wilson. "As a leader, at this point, you’ve got to look forward. And there’s been a lot of people jump off the bandwagon and it’s my responsibility as a leader to keep everybody in this organization, in this team, in that locker room together."

Wilson's status is still unclear for next week's match up against Rutgers, but he did warm up prior to Saturday's game and was in full uniform on the sidelines. The Razorbacks have been outscored 79-10 since Wilson was knocked out in the second quarter last Saturday.
Arkansas was considered a dark horse for a national championship prior to the season, and watching his last season start this way must be tough for the senior quarterback.
Luckily for Wilson, all of this stress will be washed away in April at the NFL Draft, where he's going to take home millions of dollars as a likely top-10 pick.
