In the year 2019, is there a bigger generator of bullshit than the transfer portal?
“The part about it I still have a hard time with is that you don’t have to come tell your coach if you’re gonna get in it,” Riley said. “Any job in the world, if you’re gonna leave or go take another job, it’s the right thing to go tell the people that you work for. It’s just common respect, courtesy, that you have those conversations.
“We’re here to educate and help grow young men, yet we don’t put them in position where they’ve gotta make grown-man choices and have grown-man talks. That part to me is still a little perplexing, but I think it’s done some good things for players’ rights.”
Skip the part where he’s comparing this to a job. I’ll buy the rest of his two weeks notice whine when he lobs the same criticism at peers like Bobby Petrino for their “grown-man choices”. LSU just hired its new AD away from Texas A&M the same day it relieved Alleva of his duties.
So, again, what makes unpaid student-athletes different from professional coaches and administrators? That’s a rhetorical question, y’all.
