In a nutt-shell, Houston states he has never run someone off from the team that didn't do it to them self. Here is the contradiction to his statement. When confronted about this subject Houston acted as if he didn't know the player that used to be on his roster three years ago. He told that player that no scholarship would be available for him after he discovered that the financial aid the kid would receive would count toward his 85 man limit. The kid had a full ride to Ohio University but opted out due to a promise made by Nutt. We as a fan base have to care about this issue. Kids are being treated like a useable commodity. While Ohio State reaps the rewards from the service of these young men, I think that we are pretty honest with them and place them in a healthy environment. Every tool is given to them to help them pursue their goals whether it be professional sports or academic achievements. In so many other areas of the country, these kids that don't quite measure up to "super star" status get abused and mislead. Everything is done to further the "business." Yeah it is a business on one end of the spectrum but nothing in these kids careers should be businesslike except their work ethic. That's what makes this amateur sport so appealing.
