Thank you, I think I remember some posts being critical of the school for
"running players off." But I agree with your take. It is now a cuthroat business with no loyalty by either side. Sure is a long way from the old "Be True to Your School" era isn't it?
The current way is neither all good nor all bad but seems to me to be headed to where only a small portion of the players now receiving football and mens basketball scholies will improve and most will lose out big time.
Dog eat dog world when each side says to the other, "you are only as good and secure as my/our lack of success in finding something better."
