Athletes & Coaches Need to Grow Up

In an article by the Orlando Sentinel's Chris Hayes, the total story of the nasty breakup between Dominic Walker and the Nebraska Cornhusker coaching staff is revealed. 

 Most guys know the term breakup, and realize it is usually not a good ending to any relationship. Nebraska coach Bo Pelini took things even further, when he gave Walker his thoughts on flipping his commitment to Auburn.

“It was a very tough decision. They were [mad]. They were very mad. But I thought I had to call them like a real man should,” Walker said. “But yeah, they were mad. Coach Pelini said, ‘Best of luck, you’re going to need it.’ ”

Further in the story the author lets us know his opinion of Walker...

"I can vouch for Dominic Walker. He does not have character issues. He may have issues with indecision, but that comes with the territory. He's young." 

Yes, 17 and 18 year old humans are immature decision makers. Bo Pelini proved that not all of us mature with age. 

 Welcome to the Auburn family Mr. Walker.
