“When we sign a young man, we expect him to see through to graduation,” Georgia football coach Mark Richt said. “I know contractually it is one year at a time, but from what’s in my heart and from what’s in the heart of the University of Georgia is for these guys to make it all the way through to graduation. It means a whole lot to us.
“I don’t think it will change the way we view taking care of these guys.”
South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier believes it’s a “terrible idea” to offer multiyear scholarships.
“What if a young man decides he doesn’t want to give much effort or go weightlifting or go to workouts?” Spurrier said. “How do you get rid of him? Everybody has to earn his or her way in life.”
