2754113, Yeah, you're right

At this point, it's easy to criticize Corral's decision because he got hurt. He made a bold choice to play alongside his teammates. And given the stakes, he made a bold decision. You have to respect his heart, even if his choice wasn't the best long-term decision.

My post was fueled somewhat by Herbstreit's comments about modern players being entitled for dropping out of bowl games.

Either way, if the player is making an informed decision that reflects their personal values, then they deserve the right to make that decision.

But pundits and fans' criticism of players who hold out of bowl games is selfish and upholds a standard of amateurism that hasn't existed in at least a generation.

It's FBS. Everyone's entitled. The players have the right to be 'entitled' too.
