From what Fluker said:
They told him when they recruited him and through the summer that he would start. Then from the 1st game he was on the Injury report with an illness and never played. Then in October he was able to pass the medical exam, but the coaches told him that he wasn't even going to practice anymore and they were going to redshirt him. He's pissed b/c he didn't want to redshirt at all and felt like he could come in and contribute half way through the season. (He probably could have, their secondary is awful.)
