You are 100% right. I do not necessarily agree with his position, however, I admire him for standing up for what he believes in, and risking his scholarship. It seems many people are willing to raise their hands, but not if it has a potential cost. I think perhaps like many young people he thinks the world moves faster than it does, and that the requests/demands do not need to be vetted with the rest of the campus [other student athletes, other non-athlete students (as they also matter), and, dare I say, alumni]. But that said, kudos for him taking a stand that might have negative repercussions. Few are willing to follow that lead. He has some cojones and that is not to be ignored or ridiculed.
