While parents should help their children make decisions about college

For a young person to be successful in college they have to be engaged and want to be there. Athletic success or at least the preception of success is one part of that. When athletic teams are winning the student body has pride it adds a different vibe to campus. When a young person is picking a college everything is part of the process and decision. Winning athletic programs bring recognition and publicity which in return makes students more likely give a school a second look.

I have two children, my oldest could have attended most colleges and he chose ECU. He texted me a selfie opening game his freshman year from the boneyard and said he grew up wanting to sit in the student section at DFS. My daughter couldn’t care less if they stopped making footballs or basketballs and chose another college for great reasons.

Every kid is different and they chose colleges for different reasons. If you want to make a kid resent you and miserable try making them go to a college they think is not a good fit for themselves.
