Gene really wants nothing to do with sport. The guilt of Finny's injury haunts him that much. Gene puts up with Cliff Quackenbush's taunts about taking such a junior position the year before he graduates. Finny also inquires but Gene merely says sport no longer interests him. When Finny persists, Gene realises that perhaps sport can provide a way to make things up to Finny and become more a part of his life. (He also wants to become Finny but that's a different thread!) I'll have to look for the chapter.
