    Is there anything wrong with being "Me oriented" when it comes to choosing where you are going to college?

    "Is there anything wrong with being "Me oriented" when it comes to choosing where you are going to college?"

    Well, that college will be paid for through his participation in a team sport, so yeah, there could be something wrong with it...

    I would argue that the primary goal of college is to educate and prepare you for a life and career. Being part of a team is obviously part of that prepatartion, but not all. A student athlete needs to decide what systems, coaches, players, locations, etc. fit him the best so that he can maximize his college experience and have the best chance of success after school. This is nearly ENTIRELY "me" driven and he has no team to be committed to. That being said...once a player commits, he needs to learn to work with his team for everyones betterment.

    I have a hard time with the notion that a player owes something to a team that he isn't a part of. If that were the case, college would be like high school and everyone would have to attend their local University and be a part of that team by default. Right now, the system allows you to pick what is best for your success and that's what he's doing. As long as they go through the decision process with integrity, they have no real other obligations to anyone.

    If California was that great everyone would go there. I would still hold out some hope for Gwaltney. He enjoyed his visit in Columbus. It's much closer to NYC and Ohio State has the best football program in the world. He will be revered if he comes to Columbus and if he produces at all, he will be in the NFL in the future. Bring it JG. Go Bucks.

    Well, Ohio State has #3 and #4, along with #1 in the summer.

    Yeah, and we are only a few teams behind in terms of being hated for landing all the recruits.

    I dislike SoCal for its unchanging weather. But it doesn't get hot there, unlike Columbus. Plus it hardly ever rains.

    We really need to start convincing interested recruits not from the west that Earthquakes and homosexuality are huge downsides to the rest of the California country.

    Oh, and I was hearing from my SoCal friend that once you get outside USC's huge campus, you are in an absolutely horrible part of town.

    Uh we just had two weeks of the worst storms out here and like twenty people died in the floods and the weather had gotten worse this winter because of El Nino, and a 4.4 quake woke me up the other night. (No B.S.)

    I love our program but how do you argue with B2B NCs, even though one is shared. No team in college football is hotter today than SC (just ask Freddie Davis how good the other players are). Also, unlike tOSU they really have a killer tradition, just ask OJ.

    was talking to a couple of california kids today who were recruited by usc....

    the campus is said above...dont go off campus or you are taking your life into your own hands....

    and the players lift in the basement of some non-athletic building....nothing like the facilities at tOSU....

    the campus and facilities are not the reason they go to usc.....the city and the night-life may be a reason though....

    I would be interested in what goes on during a USC official visit. The coaches are in control of what the kids do and do not see and you certainly have a lot to pick and choose from in Southern California.
  15. kids in socal call it University of Spoiled Children too. not exactly a postive image for the local kids.
