Most opinions have been against coach/athlete relationships, and the arguments against them have been very understandable.
Athletes need to be able to trust in their coaches.
I have dated a few professional athletes, and no, I am not a gold digger nor am I a cheerleader.
Or is it simply the smart move given his bright NFL future? Mc Caffrey’s decision is part of a trend that is essentially calling out college football’s bowl system.
Sporting News’ Bill Bender and Alex Novick look at both sides of the story. The more star players take this course of action, then the more the word “meaningless” applies to every bowl game that isn’t a College Football Playoff semifinal. At that point, just cancel the rest of the bowl games.
“popular” doesn't immediately mean people want to have sex with them.
There is no connection between popularity and sexual interest, and the two should not be considered mutually exclusive.
As more players like Mc Caffrey do this — LSU’s Leonard Fournette kind of did the same thing but at least he has an ankle injury — then that’s where we’re headed. But let’s call this for what it is: a business decision.
Let’s just substitute the college football postseason with a two-month NFL Combine instead, because watching 40-yard dashes and shuttle runs is even more riveting. Enjoy that while Stanford coach David Shaw tries to sell preparing for North Carolina to the rest of his team. Hell no, NFL GMs don’t care if Mc Caffrey sits the Sun Bowl out. College football actually loses out because of the four-team playoff here. Just come out and say, “I don’t want to jeopardize my future and get hurt in a bowl game like Notre Dame’s Jaylon Smith did in the Fiesta Bowl last year because it could cost me millions of dollars.” Otherwise, the decision to play one more time with your teammates in El Paso, Texas, would have been a no-brainer.
Consent must always be established between all parties involved, no matter what.
The girl, who shall remain unnamed because she is a minor, spoke with KPIX 5 television station back in December and stated that she, in no way, consented to any sexual activity with the boy and that the police have actual surveillance footage that reveals parts of the assault that occurred that night.
On Monday, Stanford’s Christian Mc Caffrey announced he will not play in the Sun Bowl against North Carolina, a decision that is met with two very polarizing sides.
