But they don't have the answers other than to trot out the generic responses that don't translate. I do take issue with fans, though, that think these kids deserve to be put through the ringer. That's easier said than done when you're not staring them in the face and you realize that they are 18-22, putting their heart and effort every day into wearing the winged helmet. Folks can say all they want about the fact that they are on scholarship, but contrary to popular belief, I don't think they "owe" fans or the media anything. They owe it to their teammates, their coaches and their school to work hard, and they do. If I saw someone pissing away everything, that I would call him on, but they deserve the benefit of the doubt a lot more then they get it.
