I agree that scholarships have to be earned yearly, but in academics there are clear standards. You may need to maintain a 2.0 gpa for example to keep your scholarship from year to year. That's fair. It's clearly defined reasonable standard. Some scholarships may have higher gpa standars, but again it's a clear standard that you know going in you have to maintain. You take at least 12 credits and you're expected to get certain grades through assignments, papers, and exams.
Now in football scholarships what's the standard? What Les said is subjective and not clearly defined. Was Chris expected to be at least 3rd? If you so where is the policy clearly stated in writing before for all to see?
Did he have to take a certain number of snaps in practice? Did he have to take a certain number of snaps in games? Did he have to complete a certain number of passes in practice? If you say scholarships can be taken away based on performance let the kid know what the expectations are. It's no different than expecting a certain gpa, but you have to let the kid know what are his standadrs. What are your measurements for him getting renewed?
