Combine departure has people close to Adam Muema concerned


Former San Diego State running back Adam Muema, who abruptly left the Scouting Combine because he said God told him to, has been out of touch this week. His friends are getting concerned.

I have no idea where is,” a person close to Muema told U-T San Diego. “[San Diego State coaches] have been trying to track him down, too. Every time they do, his phone is off. . . . It’s a frustrating deal.”

Lou Farrar, Muema’s high school football coach, said he would like some assurance that Muema is OK but hasn’t received any such assurance.

“It’s a big mystery,” Farrar said. “At this point, we just hope he’s safe. As long as he’s safe. That’s all that really matters.”

Aware that people were wondering if he had some mental health issues, Muema wrote on Twitter two days ago, “Yes, you guys are right I am crazy, crazy in love with Jesus it is the sweetest name I know.” He has been silent since then.

    Yeesh. He thinks God is advising him on how to join the Seahawks? And even more shockingly, the answer is to go off the grid?

    NFL teams need to give this guy a wide, wide birth. Who knows what God’s gonna tell him to do next?

    Anyone that believes there’s a man in the sky is insane.

    Pressure does funny things to people.
    Oah well better to find out now than to have God tell him to leave his team the night before a playoff game

    He doesn’t need a manager, because he probably has the wrong mindset to play in the NFL.

    The man isn’t in the sky, He Is the sky, also, He is the ground and the air.

    And he thinks he’ll be drafted? God told him to quit people.

    No problem with God telling a person what He may have told this guy. Problem comes when he feels the need to share it with people (HEY I’M GONNA PLAY FOR THE SEAHAWKS!). I’m sure he could have told scouts and combine workers that “Hey, got some personal battles going on, need to step away.”

    Hopefully he’s not Dimitrius Underwood-like.

    Google Glen Coffee. Niners running back in 2009. Just quit one day to preach.

    He has obviously chosen another line of work.

    I’m beginning to wonder if this was a genius coup to bypass the combine drug test…. hmmm guess he never heard of the wizzinator. I think maybe Muema should’ve sought out Onterrio Smith for advice.

    Dimitrius Underwood 2.0?

    I wonder what people who don’t believe in anything but themselves as a physical being do?

    Looking at his tweets over the past year or so, I don’t find any of this surprising. They range from strange to slightly disturbing.

    “Found out 6 babies dies because no one gave 10% tithe. SD Rock Church we could of changed that”

    “I’m thinking of a spiritual based job I need help. Maybe I’ll open a Christ based school or pastor or daycare get them why their young”

    “Chris beat Rihanna because she had HIV”

    Religion can take a lost person and take them over the edge.

    there IS-a-man in the sky…probably billions of them.
    and women….and all kinds of cool critters.

    That’s two warning signs in a row. I hope he’s alright and well.

    Why does he even have a brain? It’s just an empty vessel waiting for a voice to tell him where to walk next.

    Florio…I’m a Psychiatrist and I wish the NFL would educate on Bipolar Disorder. Most males present with symptoms around their early 20’s much like titus young, this young man, and Bess. Unfortunately, becoming extremely religious is one way their psychosis may present. This is very common. Bipolar disorder happens in 3-5% of the population which is almost 1 out of 20 people. Clearly, you will have a number of those individuals in a game that put much stress on the body and mind. Please write a post about this. Love your sight…I check it everyday…
