I would also be angry. Carroll an allegedd defensive guru talked Mays out of going pro last year when he would have gone in the first 10. Builds him up but dos not coach him--instead Carroll plays games at practices. Gives students the illusion that they are special to him while he is angling for a higher paying job. In this context, the SE, ACC,Big 12, Pac 10and Big Ten sign lucrative contracts that enable schools to pay gurus like Carroll to attract talent and make (not earn) $2-3 million a year--all while they are seeking higher paying jobs. Most players are not as fortunate as Mays. They leave without finishing college or are reduced to selling trinkets in front of the stadium. They leave college without a cent in their pocket (at least convicts get severance pay). If it is a business at least have the decency of treating it like a business and give football players $50,000 upon graduation instead of lying to them. Carroll knew Mays' weaknesses but deluded him into coming back and giving one more year for the Giper. If he had jumped last year he would have been paid too much to fail and people would have actually coached him.

My Beloved Coach Cheaty Carroll has experience in Cheating because I gave him all the money He needed to buy players for Old SC. I know We at SC deserve the Death Penalty, but we will only get a Slap. I Need to make a payment to the NCAA to make sure of that. " Cheat On"
