Watching college athletes play sports is one of America and Canadas favorite pastimes People love the thrill of hard competition and the fact that these athletes will always give 100 effort College athletics has always been at the heart of this It has always been something more pure than professional sports Unfortunately college sports today is a business and college players and coaches have drifted away from what it used to mean to play college sports Every individual on a team is expendable and every individual at one point or another will be replaced Coaches will typically form relationships with their players on an authoritative level The coaches sometimes control every aspect of the players life It can be anything from eating habits extra curricular activities and training for the particular sport to such things as dating behaviors and other social characteristics of the normal life of a college student Basically it is just a trap Take for example a high school student with great athletic talent and good enough grades that is recruited to a division one school with a large scholarship Lets say he or she plays basketball They will accept the offer and sign a National Letter of Intent which declares that if the student wanted to play for another school he or she would have to take a full year off from playing that specific sport Basically the student is bound to that school however the school is not bound to the athlete The athlete will probably feel as though signing the letter is just a small price to pay in the way of higher education If though the student in their first year of college believes that they are incapable of competing at such a high level what once was a way to pay for their education has become their downfall The contract that they signed is non-renewable and non-negotiable The coach will therefore have to let that athlete go
