Definitely an interesting scenario. Cael released Stout who is on his way to Pitt. Being a God fearing man, I would assume that Sanderson would do the same with Suriano.

Anything different would appear vindictive.

Apples and oranges. There is probably a couple dollars of investment difference between the two. Pitt is not in big 10

In most cases I would agree, however the VaTech/Iowa situation makes me understand why its not done... not saying I agree or disagree with how it played out, just saying I understand VaTech's position.

I disagree but it's very situational. Take a guy like Stout and compare the situation to Suriano (if he actually does try to transfer). Stout is probably not tying up any scholarship money and he ultimately has no chance at starting. Why not give him a chance to start elsewhere? Suriano is probably tying up quite a bit in scholarship money, took a lot of time and effort to recruit, and on top of it, it leaves Penn State without a replacement. I expect most will disagree but that's my opinion.

JMO, the financial/investment in the athlete rationale would be tough to justify and easier for Nick to appeal and get overturned. Cael's path of least resistance would be making an argument on the basis of academic standards, if (big if) NS would be an 0-for-2 on the APR or had other academic eligibility issues, or for competitive reasons.

Agreed. Athletes aren't "serfs" to the University. Furthermore I'll add that refusing to release an athlete makes a coach come off as a douchebag, which could negatively impact recruiting. Do you think Cael would have so many studs on the team if they thought he'd fight them if they tried to transfer? Forget about it.

Cael's too smart not to see how mishandling Suriano could be a disaster to his future recruiting efforts. If Suriano wants to go, I bet he grants the release unconditionally.

Not this situation at all but I know of one coach that would not give a release right after a redshirt. His attitude was that I just paid you to work out for a season and become better, I want a ROI

Maybe Cael doesn't give a hoot about Suriano since he's holding out for $700,000 from Penn State or any other school's offer.


a fish rots from its head, but hope springs eternal.

Pretty classy move.

Especially since he was going into his senior season.

Absolutely, just as a coach should be able to pull their money back from the promise they made if they didn't pan out.

All makes sense to me.

Not necessarily.  Cael put some time and resources into this recruit.  Letting him go freely doesn't help him at all.  Being responsible is a two-way street.  I would have more sympathy if he couldn't make the lineup.  I am sure anti-PSU will see differently ,but well, we know they have an agenda.
