The definition hasn’t changed. The culture has. A man’s word in this day in age doesn’t hold the same worth as 50 years ago.
Dabo knows this and tries to teach young men that a man’s word is his bond and that’s all a man’s got. Sadly that will probably end up forcing him out of coaching. There will come a time when everyone will turn on him because of his coaching methods. He is and hopefully will always be more concerned with mentoring and turning boys into great men, rather than winning championships.
I see nothing wrong with telling a young man that if he commits to my program, he’s committed, plain and simple. If you’re not ready to go all in. Don’t.
The kid isn't even old enough to by cigarettes and you are acting like his word is signed in blood. Why not support the kid for him making the tough decision to do what he thinks is best for his future?
BV is a grown man. And I can guarantee he’s a way better man than you. Besides, his contract was a business contract with exit strategies built in that both parties agreed upon. You even attempting to compare the two tells me i’m wasting my time trying to respond to you with logic.
I forgive you for being part of the problem. But hey TU for trying.
Every contract or agreement has an exit strategy. Take out a car loan and both sides agree what will happen once the loan is satisfied or if it is not. How does an "exit strategy" make it less of a commitment?
I was surprised he left before his son graduated. My dad was our football coach. He did not resign from coaching until my brother finished his senior year. I think there is a lack of commitment in this world. Pray we have parents of players that are ensuring their sons make a commitment they are willing to live up to at Clemson.
