[quote=“ChambersEra, post:16, topic:3149”]What I love is a lot of people blast the BOT for their overreaction when the media and entire country exploded over the Sandusky issue.
These same people then overreact and assume the worse when stories come out about Alexis leaving or O’Brien oversigning without even knowing any facts.
Over one quote we have become a football factory.
There has been a change in coach and I’m sure the new way of doing things at Penn State won’t be for every player. Some guys might want to transer.
What if there are players out there who are being recruited by lesser schools who want the opportunity to compete for a scholarship at a bigger school and understand they may have their scholarship taken away?
Some of you forget it’s a two way street. You think these players are completely in the dark? You think these players blindly pick a school without understanding what they are getting involved w/?
There are only so many “big time” programs and there is a “big time” within the “big time.” Some of these players would like chance to compete at the biggest of the programs and can’t because of scholarship restrictions? I’m not saying the system isn’t abused, but this system also affords more invidviduals the ability to seek dream of playing w/ the elite of the elite.
Every message board has lit up over this. I think O’Brien deserves the benefit of the doubt here. You guys are all commenting on something that you have no understanding of.[/quote]
