I'm amazed at how often kids are jumping ship in college sports because they aren't getting PT. It would be interesting to see what percentage of scholarship athletes who sign as a freshman end up transferring.
I can't blame a kid for wanting more PT. Some of these kids are in college because they have a talent on the field/court and want to showcase that. They can't do that riding the bench or being on the scout team.
On the other hand, I give major props to kids who stick it out with minimal PT, knowing that their dirty work in practice is the lowest building block to success--but perhaps the most important.
