I absolutely 100% detest Stephen A Smith in every way but is he really wrong here? I am the father of 24, 20 and 18 year old sons. My 24 year old is a graduate of MTSU, my 20 year old will be a sophomore at Clemson and my 18 year old will be starting Tri-County next week. The oldest has now been in the real world for a couple of years and tends to think things should be easier than they are...almost like he is owed something. Its common with this age as most everyone knows. I have not raised my boys to feel entitled or that they are owed anything by this world. If they want something they have to go out and earn it. I have told them that they can't sit back and wait for things to come to them because if they do this world will chew them up and spit them out. The world doesn't give a damn about them even though their parents do. As I said...can't stand Smith but that generation needs to hear this far more than they do. Just my opinion.

I agree with both Don and Stephen A. Smith here. As an individual, you need to work hard to be successful. Don't expect anyone to care more about you than you. Because in reality, most people do not care more about me than they do about themselves. A classic example is Kelly Bryant. Just about everyone on this board turned on him in a heartbeat. Because... the fans didn't give a damn about him! I'm not defending his actions, I am just saying that we don't live in a world of unicorns and rainbows.

I also think Don is correct. As a leader, you must value people and treat them like family.

But I think they are talking from two different perspectives. Don is addressing it from the coaching staff/administration standpoint and Smith is addressing it from the student athlete perspective. Both of them are right in my opinion.
