Only question left about Dillon Baxter is the same one ... Why?

14

I have disagreed with Scott Wolf on MANY things. But I read this story twice and I really can't disagree with him on anything here. This whole situation just doesn't fit right to me...but my opinion is insignificant. Coaches play favorites...their human. Baxter didn't fit into Kiffin's plans regardless of his talent level...WHY, is a very good question. But we will never know. I am not sure Kiffin's handling of the Ambles situation in comparison to Baxter is consistent, it will surely fuel the fire of Kiffin's detractors. The Drip, Drip, Drip of this situation is distasteful to me...if Baxter didn't fit in then he should have been gone a long time ago. Now, Kiffin looks no better than any other coach that runs a kid off the squad to get a schollie back. Baxter isn't blameless here, but if he was such a "headache" the why let the situation stew? I would have shown him door when Baxter's parents inquired about playing time. Even I wouldn't put up with that. Anyway, JMO...
