I was gonna make this same point, and then I saw it, so I'll second it. Imagine you're a Tony Brown, for instance, and you have Nick Saban and Bama, and Les Miles and LSU, and Mack Brown and Texas, and Urban Meyer and OSU coming hard after you, guys you watched win title after title as you were growing up, and now they want YOU to come play for them. They tell you that you're gonna be just like ________ who won championships and was drafted in the first round. Then you pick the lucky one, and that guy is psyched to have you and the others are sincerely bummed out.
The unique players, the real stars, are the ones who are able to wipe the slate clean (I think we have one in Kwon, btw) and say I'm ready to earn everything I want. Think about how many kids play HS football vs D1 college ball vs NFL ball. Most just don't have that mindset.
