If anyone thinks the character of young football players and the ability of coaches do not matter, take a look at the lists of recruits at Air Force, Army and Navy. Of course, talent matters the most but the Service Academies play at a very competitive level without on paper talent. Remember, Cadets do not pay to go to Service Academies so there are no limits on numbers. Army 88 players 3-3* recruits Air Force 39 players 3-3* recruits Navy 64 players 2-3* recruits
There will always be parents of highly touted athletes that want their kids to go to place that supports their growth. In a country full of scumbags and greedy a-h’s, the real success comes from doing things the right way with humility and respect for others, and plenty of people know Dabo’s Clemson football team may be at the top in the whole US of A.
Dang, and I thought this article was going to be about all of those elite coaches in the SEC not named Saban( or Smart or Fisher) , or those coaches in the ACC not named Swinney. After all don't they all have character and coaching ability.
The Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs has ordered an urgent investigation into the school's sports teams after shocking allegations emerged on Sunday of endemic rape, recreational drug use and academic cheating, primarily among football players at the institution.
That’s enough, I guess. And that does not even include the rape allegations against Naval Academy football players and the alleged coverup by the military “judge.” But it’s all out there for anyone to read and make up their own mind.
Unfortunately character no longer matters. This Country was founded on Judeo-Christian moral value system. This nation has now evolved to a post modern value system. In post modernism, there is no right and there is no wrong. There is no absolute truth. If truth, right, and wrong are all determined by the individual; how can we label good or bad character. What we see in sports is typical of what we see in our society as a whole, moral degredattion.
