Well CDS and CBB aren't "student athletes". Coaches have earned the right to leave and take any job they want. Both of Clemson's coaches have been student athletes in a time when you could withhold water if a coach didn't like the way their players were practicing. Sorry but holding someone to their word and/or accountable or making someone push through some adversity shouldn't be seen as a bad thing. Making a kid NOT GIVE UP shouldn't be a bad thing. Instead of empowering the kids even more maybe we should make them work harder. Maybe people who think the student athlete should have all the power should maybe see the amount of time and money that goes into each individual player. Your talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars that goes into EACH player. See that's the thing we have talked about how players are being taken advantage of and not once do we talk about how much is put into these guys. No wonder these players think they can come and go as they want, we hold them accountable to NOTHING. I'm not saying we should treat them like property but treating them like princesses doesn't work either. It is what it is though.
