But in all honesty, I don't have a problem with this. Even if someone is less fortune, if they can't play football they wouldn't get a scholarship anyway. They are for the best players regardless of income.

And I'd be willing to bet that Diddy will start scholarships of his own (or the like) at the university

Did the kid earn the scholarship or not? If so, how could you come up with the opinion that he shouldn't get it?
I feel I'm in a portion of Atlas Shrugged.

I think they will now be asking for donations.

Did rich kid Andrew Luck give back his scholarship money? Were there people demanding he do so?

Oliver Luck is worth half a billion? Plus Stanford is a private school....not like UCLA which is publicly funded.

But it sucks for the kid who is trying to be his own man living in his fathers shadow.

My point stands, kids from privileged backgrounds that dont NEED athletic scholarships have been accepting them for decades without much fanfare.

It seems like he worked his tail off and got in to a good school on scholarship. What is wrong with that?

This is a kid, who has accomplished something on his own in spite of being in the shadow of one of the wealthiest musicians ever. I am sure his parents are incredibly proud of him.

Give it up. The kid earned his scholarship and he deserves it. Your kid didn't get one and you're upset because Diddy is rich? fug off. Tell your kid to get better at stuff and maybe one day he'll earn something instead of having it handed to him because someone else did all the work.

fuging KT and I agree on something? Now I feel dirty.

I agree that if he earned it on his own it really doesn't matter where he came from, who he is, or who his parents are.

It's not like Diddy paid UCLA to give his son a scholarship, the kid can play and he earned it. It just makes for a cool story because of who his dad is.
