Re: Institutional control
I am a little late to the party but I really don't understand the huge uproar created by this story. To me its kinda a "welcome to the real world" type event. There are a lot of ESPN people claiming "its not fair" which is a shocker to me. When do we realize that life isn't fair. Its not different than someone signing a no complete clause with a job. If you sign the clause you have to abide by it. It may not be fair, but you accepted those terms when you accepted the job.
If I am Bo Ryan I am not letting this kid go to a rival or a B1G school. If I play them in two years I don't want to run up against him. There may be something going on behind the scenes that irritated Ryan or it may be as basic as not wanting to play against him in the future.
