Jordan Rogers blasts Vanderbilt on twitter
 
I think this can be classified as an epic rant, this can't help with recruiting at all, and is going to really take some good PR to fix.

And for the record,I do agree with him.

Ouch.

Doesn't help that they're down to eight recruits. EIGHT!

That's like losing your coach and being on probation

Do universities do this to be on the safe side of the NCAA or is it just a lack of common sense?

Guys who make millions or stand to make millions whining about having to pay a small fee. Sounds like more of the "whiney rich people" Jay Leno was talking about.

There has got to NCAA rules involved in this because it's not just Vanderbilt. Also, the facilities are supposed to be for current players. If they let anyone who ever played on the team used them, it would be awfully crowded.

That could be it.

It could also be a matter of Rodgers feeling that he and his class of players are mostly responsible for Vandy's (relative) success over the previous few years and should be allowed to take advantage of the facilities their on the field success helped improved.

If you used to be a member of the YMCA would they still let you workout there 2 years after you left?

If he was to hurt himself working out at their facility Vandy would be liable. This whole issue is just about liabilty and insurance.

Pay the fee like any returning alumni and get off your high-horse. Sacrifice, my ass - the institution set you up to play a game for a living.

Guess you didn't read the link that was posted. He says it is not about the money, but about the lack of respect.

Vandy is telling Rodgers in so many words that the program is not a family and they don't owe each other anything. They had a partnership and as far as the university is concerned, the partnership is done.


The university is in their right to do so, but from a standpoint of keeping the players around the program, is it the best decision?
