If a kid comes in, goes to class, gives good effort M-F and still never sees the field on Saturday, I have no problem with him keep his scholarship. If, however, you have a kid who fails to give effort on the practice field, lets his grade slip, and generally seems to be milking the system, I say a school should be able to cut him loose. As CDD rightly says, academic scholarships are very strict on such things as GPA (not to mention class load, subject matter of classes, etc), and they'll pull those scholarships in a heartbeat. Athletic scholarships should be year-to-year for everyone across the board. This is just another example of Mike Slive being weak and being too afraid of the PC police. Quid Pro Quo!!!
