@HighEliteMajor hope @drgnslayr has it right. Sure be interesting to get a full, inside view from all perspectives on this. I agree, comments by all parties - Self & Vick’s mom - were laden with back story.
We want commitment from players to our program, would like to see that same commitment by program to the players.
From my years in the athletic dept, I’m not so naive to know that many of these relationships are “business”. Know that there were situations where certain players were subject to pressure to leave to open up scholarships where program didn’t want to do cut them openly.
