Wow - things get real in the bayou:

This was texted to her.

From Brenda King to DJ Sanders:

You have heard from many un-loyal people congratulating your move. Rest assured that Rene and I and HUNDREDS of loyal fans are not in that boat. We DO NOT want you to leave and we think you are making a BIG mistake. Like brainwashed. PLEASE RECONSIDER. So many downsides. Who will watch you play? Jam? Will you watch him play? Where will your parents be? The stadium will be full here. It rains more there than here. We fans here feel that you have spat in our faces. Did Jesus Christ forgive those who crucified him? Yes, he did. Don"t you ALWAYS strive to be Christ like. 3 - 7. Humph! Christ like? Forgiveness!! ! 3.7? Where are you D. J. ?

Edit to add:  This was found on the Ragin Cajun fans Facebook page

There are only two, maybe three, miscreants on this board who would echo this sort of vitriol at any of the kids who departed

Before all you "saints" start casting stones - a few things to ponder.

Did you not want your kid to attend the school with the best possibility of winning?

All of you didn't spend that time and money if you thought your kid was elite to attend Bum F College.

The text, if true, was totally wrong, but all of you who live vicariously through your kids (99%) would rather have Lil' Suzie attend a school whose fan base whole heartedtly supports the team, rather than the 25 or so parents that can attend a game. 

The education is paramount, your self serving egos trump that.

Remember this is a business for the schools, the coaches, the kids and the parents. People tend to do what puts themselves in the best perceived position regardless of the people they step on or over. Loyalty, trust, fan base, you name it, go out the window when the situation no longer looks good for their own self interest.

If this a business for all involved in college softball, then it a terrible business plan.

Revenues - expenses = net income.

Title 9 write off for the schools. 

Ego driven incentives for parents.

What little softball scholarship monies for the majority of players is minute.

Best to go to a university to suit your education major.

That being said, the self confidence and leadership that college athletics provide is priceless.

Rudy, you're wrong. The whole thing is a business. Yes, the softball side doesn't make money, but you can't have men's football and basketball without the other sports on campus. So they are part of the business, especially in light of Title IX. Little softball scholarships? How about 12 for a sport where you only need about 18 players and tuition could be as high as $50-$60 K. Give a family $30,000 per year and now you have entered the world of business.

The transfer from Lamar was actually kicked off the team there - interesting pick up.

Dear Mr. Hebrew,

If the above is an example of your skills, I'll pass. Have provided, within the scope of my limited skill, suggestions of correction. Also, please note this is a United States of America forum and visited by far less of your target audience.

May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits,

Tru - fuzzy math on your part.

Of the 12 schollys, most of the dollars are eaten up by 4-6 players. The rest fight for table scraps.

18 players on scholarship is a bit low.

But you are right, it is a business for the schools. Even by your calculations, a player getting 10k a year toward a 50k tuition makes a ton of money for the school.

BTW the cost of a college education in America is criminal, but that's for another thread.

That doesn't even make sense. Maybe your math is a little fuzzy. How can 4-6 players eat up 12 scholarships? It would take 12 players to eat up 12 scholarships, and that's only if they get a true full ride which many programs don't even usually offer.

Rudy said MOST of the money is eaten up by 4-6 players. Typically Pitchers & Catchers in any given year. There is the rare exception but, rest of team is getting much smaller individual percentages of Athletic monies.

Relax ' s point is that "most" of the scholarship money cannot be taken up by "4-6 players" ... only -- at most 33 percent to 50... and only assuming the very unlikely case of six 100 percents is 50 even in play

OutofZone, do you realize how ridiculous your response is to RELAX. The most that 4-6 players could eat up is 4-6 scholarships. That leaves 6-8 for the rest of the team. If everyone else got a third of a scholarship there would be 18-24 of them getting it. If everyone else got a half of a scholarship that would be 12-16 others getting a half. There is a lot of money to be doled out, especially if the tab is $50,000 per year at a school. The numbers are big and it matters to all who are getting the money. The math is pretty easy, certainly not fuzzy.

Not from the state allotment to universities. They did somewhat adjust TOPS to scale it more to reward higher high school performance than previously laid out.

I'm not going to do the leg work for you. But let me give you a clue. The average softball player gets around $6000 per year scholarship money. If you have any clue about sports, you would realize the stars take up 75% of the money. Been around too long to be unaware. Most players are paying a ton to play (suit up and shag balls) on the team. Facts are facts. Do a little research on roster sizes, talk to a few parents.

Never thought I would agree with Rudedog but this point is right on. The more and easier to get student loans became the more the schools charged. It's like it just perpetuated itself
Another point is the money doled out. I know they have calculated costs for everything but my kid came home with money every summer. That money should have went to other players some that barely got books covered
