All this leads fans to believe something is wrong in the Lone Star State. They may be going for a drastic rebuild of some sort, as it's not normal to see so many people leave an organization so quickly. So far, there is no official word as to what that may be though. Either way, the Fuel will have a lot of work to do to reassemble a competitive roster.
