Cam Newton – Jeremiah Masoli: Then and Now

College coaches are constantly bashed for what many perceive as leniency, especially when a star athlete screws up. The perception is that they’re given preferential treatment and while that may be so in some cases (although likely not as much as in the past thanks to the high-powered microscope that programs and coaches are under these days thanks to the Internet), many are acting in not only the best interest of the program, but the best interest of the individual as well. The quicker we are to turn our backs on those who mess up, the less likely that individual will be to correct their behavior and avoid similar slip-ups in the future.
