Something for Fans Everywhere to Think About

Most people believe booing is a part of sports. The players are supposed to be good, and when they don't perform, fans boo. I've always been of the opinion that booing professionals is understandable, but booing college student athletes crosses the line. Professionals get paid; sports is their job. They should have to perform. But in college, it's different. These kids are college students that play sports while at school. They're not paid, they just play because they love the game.

So anyways, I was scouring ESPN tonight and found this post on Ted Miller's blog:

Did Tennessee boos earn Stanford a top recruit? 

Here's the summary of what happened:

Quarterback recruit Josh Nunes was attending the Vols game against Florida. At the time, he was committed to Tennessee.

But that wasn't a good day for the Vols. They got whipped by Florida and their fans rained down boos on them as they left the field.

And a few days later, Nunes decided to look elsewhere.

Nunes claimed that the booing didn't affect his choice, but I feel that the timing can't be coincidental. Nunes may not have been too solid to UT due to the losing, but I imagine this had to have pushed him over the edge.

This is just something to think about guys. We're going through a tough year, but as Nestor and co. have preached all season, better times are ahead. The players are giving it their all, and for the sake of them and future players, let's stay classy in the Rose Bowl - as we have been all season long.

Go Bruins
