You can be a great player here in Columbia, however if you are not friends with the coach or have some kind of connection your kid won't go anywhere. It is so pathetic that kids with talent can't make a team in Columbia because of the politics!

It is so true, just like the Baseball team held two uniforms for kids that got caught smoking pot and drinking. The AD and the coachs have their click and if your not in it, then you are screwed. I had asked some simple questions and since I was not a drinking buddy, or a money donor my kid was given some lame excuse why he needed to wait to make the team.

I would love to hear where you received your information. Please tell me when you think the baseball team did this, then I can tell you how wrong you are!

From a father that questioned why two kids were allowed to play after a ten game suspension, and they neve even made tryouts. He is a well respected citizen in Columbia, his son was a great QB for the football team very recently.

Ahh..more hearsay. Sounds like they served their time if they were suspended for 10 games. The school has rules for a reason and it sounds like they were followed. I also bet, if you do some research, that they did not have the numbers for tryouts this particular year.
