Multi year scholarships have positive and negative attributes.  

Pos: gives students a security blanket

Neg: that security blanket removes a lot of pressure to perform.  

A scholarship is a salary.  Just like with any other job, if you don't do your job you can get fired. 

I see both sides of the argument.  The South, being anti-employee, anti-union, and anti-pretty much everything else, would most likely side with Coach Miles point of view.  So it is not surprising to see it practiced in the SEC.

"The conference now stretches 1,308 miles, from Lincoln, Nebraska to Piscataway, New Jersey."

Not really a big deal. The Pac has fewer teams and stretches 1,539 miles from Tucson to Seattle.  The American stretches 1,694 miles from Dallas to Storrs, CT.  The ACC runs 1,489 miles from Boston to Miami.  Big 12 runs 1,463 miles from Lubbock to Morgantown.

I am sorry, but I find it extremely difficult to believe that 10 practices in spring, 4 months away from football season, will have any significant positive impact on player development.   You will need a heck of a lot more than 10 measly practices to do anything substantial.

1) the average fan doesn't care about high school football.  

2) if you get off work at 5 and the game starts at 8, you should be able to make the game unless you live in Ashtabula. 

3) what percent of fans travel from outside the CMH area?  15%?   It is not a huge number.

Bases on Columbus' high TV ratings for NBA games, coupled with the recent low attendance for the CBJ, it might be best if the Cavs and CBJs switch cities. 

Columbus Cavs

Cleveland BJs. 

Attendance would probably improve in both cities.
