Not to overstate the obvious however College Football in many instances is win at all costs. Baylor is no different than the rest of the schools out there. This is big business and all about money to the Universities. Not just Baylor, all of them.I have no problem with what they are doing. If the player does not pan out then I would suspect attrition will happen at that point.
Coach not saying that but I don't like it when some people might say its a "ministry"............let call it what it is.........
"Leadership is wisdom, courage and great carelessness of self"
To play devils advocate for sake of debate, I'll say arent sinners allowed in church. Isn'tforgiveness a tenant of religion?
If they couldn't go to church then I could never enter!
While I generally support your thesis, you did allow hyperbole to get the best of you here.

Are you putting other students on campus at risk by doing so?
Are you putting other teammates at risk of a darius white type situation? Are you exposing them to other bad influences?
You are arguing about a school which pretty recently had a MURDER involving 2 of their student athletes, and now they are pulling this crap!?
The administration is turning a blind eye to it and it bit them last time. Let's see what happens this time..
Are you comparing being involved with WillLyles having a drinking issue and getting into a fight with Carlton Dotson?
What I am implying is that if you don't draw the line, you are asking for more trouble. You choose the innocent examples, but there are other more nefarious ones as well.. Especially on the hoops team..
The last Baylor program that did this wound up with one player murdered and his teammate in prison. It wasn't that long ago.
True, but in church, they don't just allow sinners in that can bench 250 pounds and/or run a 4.5, either. That's my problem with using that line, and I assume it's austinr's, too. If some accounting major from Michigan tried to transfer into Baylor with four arrests, including two DUIs and two periods of time in jail/prison, my educated guess is the admissions office wouldn't be so welcoming.
I agree that character and chemistry is a big issue and believe that you need to have high character guys. Im not aware of other troubles involving the football team besides your somewhat "common" marijuana one last year.
I'll also say that as I'm a fan of Baylor Bball I was not a fan of how Drew handled Lacedarious Dunn a couple years back.
True. But I'm also pretty sure people on this site wouldnt care either if an accounting major wanted to transfer. It's all about winning games, never denied that.
No it's not troll.
And that's the point of the thread.
You and JoePa are like two peas in a pod. Just win, baby!
"It's all about winning games" no?
^^^^ yep, let he who is without . . . .
Oh. I see. You're being hyperbolic.
