Re: Institutional control
That's fine. I don't have anything against Ryan specifically, I just think this issue is one of those customs in college sports that wilts when held up for close ethical inspection.
Having said that, context is everything. Part of the reason I feel that way on this issue is because of the one-year-renewal scholarship. I don't think it's fair for a college to restrict where a player can play beyond the amount of time the school itself has made a commitment to the player. If we're talking about this a year or two from now and it's a kid who has one of the four-year-commitment scholarships, I'm probably going to have a different opinion about who needs to justify what.
