The fallout from success has taken a toll on the best team in all of college football. A number of players have left Mitakihara University after another successful national championship run. One of them is halfback John Paul Thomas. Despite the promise of another national championship and a Heisman and being given , Thomas opted to follow the money. "Sorry, Coach, but I just have to do what's best for my family. I'm leaving," Thomas said.

Another player taking off for the pros is wide receiver Charles Roland. Despite the lure of a college degree, and another championship to go with winning the Biletnikoff, he took opted to take the money and run. "Sorry, Coach, but I don't want to miss out on the opportunity to play on Sundays," Roland said in his face-to-face interview with Magi head coach Tatsuya Kaname.

A player that will be transferring out is left tackle B.J. Fellows, who is transferring to Illinois. "I just want a chance to prove myself, Coach. I just don't think it's here," Fellows said in his exit interview at Hakurei Centre.

"We were lucky to get [halfback] Cory Jackson on board for the long haul because we think he is going to be an asset to our team," said Coach Kaname at his office at Hakurei Centre. "We really value what he can bring to the table. The coaching staff was disappointed that Charles and John Paul deemphasized their education here, and also disappointed that B.J. didn't value his time being a Magi.

"We want players that are committed to the long-term success of this program and that comes with finishing their careers here and not leaving to go elsewhere of depart early for the pros. If you're committed, I want you on my team, otherwise, you can pack you bags and get out.

"I applaud those who chose to stay and continue/finish their careers here. As Woody Hayes once said, 'Those who stay will be champions.' Illinois and Florida will be on our schedule for next season."
