MENDENHALL ALMOST QUIT FOOTBALL LAST YEAR Posted by Mike Florio on June 15, 2008, 6:08 p.m. EDT In April, running back Rashard Mendenhall became a first-round draft pick, landing with the Steelers. It almost didn’t happen. According to the Urbana/Champaign News-Gazette, Mendenhall nearly quit football prior to the 2007 season. "I sat down and I was like, ‘If this is what football is, I don’t know if I want to do that anymore,’" Mendenhall said. "I’m not soft at all. I’m not scared of adversity. I’m don’t care if somebody’s yelling at me. That’s not what it was about at all. "I want to be happy in my life. I know I can walk away from this. I know I can finish school, get a job." Mendenhall’s brother, Walter, talked him into sticking with it, intervening just as Mendenhall was preparing to walk out of the team’s facility. Though the specifics aren’t clear (apart from a vague reference by Mendenhall to "things that were said"), Mendenhall had a problem of some sort with coach Ron Zook. "To tell you the truth," Mendenhall said, "as long as Ron Zook is there it will be hard for me to support the University of Illinois football team." We’ve got a feeling that, eventually, we’ll be hearing more about whatever it was that has created a fractured relationship between the two men.
