I can only speak for myself, but remembering my high school days, I was pretty lax in my fandom. Now, I look at fellow Toledoans who root for UM and think "how could you..." But back then, I really didn't care. I rooted for Ohio State because I was from Ohio, and that was about it. I'm guessing that's the way it is for a lot of them. And also, I think his concern is a pretty legit one. If he doesn't want to play in a spread system, that's a legit concern. It's like a DT saying he doesn't want to play NT, so he won't go to a team that runs a 3-4 system. I know the whole Urban-doesn't-run-that-kind-of-spread,-so-he'd-still-be-used-plenty argument, but you can't fault the kid for wanting to be 100% sure he's going to be happy with his college decision.
