College Football

August 21, 2013

The season is just around the corner, and the headlines should be on “who is the best team”. However, more often than not, it is on whom is violating some rule. Did my star player sign autographs for money, or did two or three of our players violate some lady at a bar? Who spent the summer riding around in an SUV with dealer plates and got paid for working at the car owner’s home? Then there are always the super student/athletes who failed summer school and will not get to play this season. These headlines are easily avoided if the university makes its policy that winning at any cost is replaced by winning within the rules. There was a time when the top football player on campus was also the top student on campus, but that went out when playing in a bowl game on January 7 paid more than all the alumni donations combined. It is a known fact that to win big every year you have to take a chance on one or more players who barely get into the university and who come from backgrounds marked by police blotters rather than honor rolls. Football, by nature, is a violent game and big, burly men will win over small scholarly men all the time. As I stated earlier, the university makes the decision–how important are the wins and how important is it to have a “look the other way” attitude when a young man is being recruited. Rose Hulman will never be national champion.
