College players need to be reminded when they sign that they're committing to the university, not the coaching staff. In return, the university, not the coach,  provides them with an athletic scholarship.

You really think way too highly of scholarships and the intentions behind them.

what percentage of these athletes will make it to the NFL - very few - I'm guessing they better think more about their college degree instead of how many "W"s the team gets.

Y'all can take it for what its worth, but I know for a fact Lane Kiffin was committed to Tennessee for the long term, but when USC came calling there was just no way in hell he and his wife(yall forget he has a family who spent many years in LA while he was coming up the coaching ranks) he could turn that down. USC is honestly and truthfully the absolute only place he would have left UT for.

Oh, and another thing, Kiffin was not option #1 at USC. Steve Sarkisian was option #1 but he really believes he has a better chance of winning at Washington than he does at USC. Jack Del Rio was popular among boosters but the AD Mike Garrett wanted to stay with a college coach.
