Enough has been exposed about the treatment of many of the horses involved that the sport is its own black eye.

I can't agree more.  I think kids expect and understand that there will be competition from younger classes but it's kind of a kick to the nuts to have the coach bring someone in laterally.

The Tate obsession here is reminiscent of a bitter ex ... I think it's time to move on.

Seems like a pretty smart move to me.  It's a business so it makes sense to not limit your market.  We live in a world where people burn jerseys of players who leave, burn shoes when a company makes a commercial they doesn't like, and stop watching a sport b/c a fractional portion of the players take a stand (figuratively) on an issue that is important to them.  It's a smart financial decision just like leaving to start rehabbing early.

Nice article, thank you for writing it as I missed the game and this was a great idea from Scoonie.  Unfortunately once again, a few on here have displayed that anything that deals with race cannot be left open for comments without crossing a line of ignorance and disrespect.  It really is sad.

So people praise Baldwin for sticking around his high school team despite an established starter in front of him, yet aren't critical of Fields of running away from the same situation?

"So, you know, honestly, the thing when I read some of them is I feel terrible for them because there's no way they're happy. They've got to be some of the most unhappy people in the world, and I feel bad because we just made them less happy, and I hate to be a part of making someone less happy. I mean, they're already miserable and to make them less happy, I'd feel bad."

Why do you think there won't be some level of parity b/w the last team or two in and the first team or 2 out of the last spot(s) in an 8 team scenario as well?

Comment 23 Aug 2018

That is what I was kind of stuck on.  As far as I know (please correct me if I'm wrong), there is not a set guideline as far as suspension like there is for termination for cause.  So to me, that is the grey area, where there is no defined right or wrong answer.  I'm sure this sounds dumb, but when I was thinking about this last night, I thought about the verdict from A Few Good Men.  Perhaps being the head coach of such a premier school requires more then just the black and white in his contract.  Every possible scenario cannot be laid out so there are times where he is expected to make the right choice in a bad situation and he clearly did not do that.

I believe Meyer said this in the presser last night but he could have treated them the same way he does with players.  Correct me if I'm wrong but when the Storm Klein incident happened, he was booted from the team before any significant investigation was done.  When more came to light and the charges were dropped, that was reduced to a short suspension.  With everything that happened with Zach Smith (some Meyer knew about and others he didn't), when was the first time Zach was punished?  Shouldn't coaches (the leaders of young men) be held to higher standards?
