Sign of the Apocalypse

From yesterday's Post-Gazette:

The star running back from Central Catholic has decided where to attend college next year. Eugene Jarvis is going to Kent State. Wait -- didn't Eugene Jarvis commit to Akron? Well, Akron didn't get Eugene Jarvis's signature. What's worse, Akron's scholarship offer didn't cover Eugene's first semester at school. According to the P-G, Eugene Jarvis said:
The more I thought things through, and thinking about all the things I've accomplished, why should I pay for my first semester?

Full marks, then, to Eugene Jarvis, for reminding us that the entitlement culture for talented athletes begins in high school. And full marks to Akron, too, for forgetting to hand Eugene Jarvis a pen.
