In the words of the great Oscar the Grouch, "Ding-dong, you're wrong!"

I was attending a football game back in the Pryor years and came across Coach Matta hosting a couple recruits. It was on the 'Shoe corner of the Lane/Olentangy River Road intersection. Thad was talking with the young men with a big ole dip of snuff in his bottom lip. Made me chuckle as it seemed the kids were getting a "this is me" recruiting trip! Thanks for erasing the mid 90s from my memory in terms of OSU basketball, coach!

Your points are relevant until you stack them against a player's loyalty to himself and his family. In reality the 2nd best QB in the country could ride the bench if the best QB in the country is on his team. By your logic, that player should do nothing but fail in a batte he can't win in the name of loyalty to his school? Granted, that exact scenario will not happen, but to a lesser degree, it does happen. Joe Burrow, case in point. In a capitalistic economy, how could you ever come down on someone for improving his chances? Our loyalty to school has very different roots than these young men who are using a very limited window as a job interview. Their window is not indefinite. People can go back to school, get a new degree, and work in the field of their dreams at almost any point in their lives. Anyone looking to go to the NFL has such a short time period in which to make that opportunity present itself, that I could not look down upon anyone in a bad set of circumstances for the propagation of that opportunity for doing something that would exponentially increase that time frame of turning a dream into a reality.
