College sports are so very lopsided.
The famous coach, especially a winning one, has an inordinate amount of the power. He earns more than anyone else on campus. He has a higher profile and paycheck than even his bosses. And any helpless kid who has a complaint is voiceless because the kid’s choices are to a) quit in a cave man culture that stigmatizes quitters, b) transfer to another school and sit out an entire year or c) be vocal and risk either being branded a whiner or punished for said whimpering, no matter how justified it might be.
And those, of course, aren’t choices at all.
