I agree with most posts here

I think Silver II's post says it best.

IMO the QB position is different. Nobody will care if the left guard is the coach's son, as long as he is not a total embarrassment. The QB is in the spotlight and will quickly get called out after every INT.

Coaches have to be careful because fans are very fickle. Hawkins didn't handle it well. I wonder if we lost any QB prospects because Cody was the solid starter. Then the scholarship issue comes up, too. Why does the multi-million dollar coach need a schollie for his kid??

I've even seen it get very ugly at the HS level in several sports. Our baseball coach's son was the best shortstop on the team as soon as he stepped on campus as a freshman. He was reluctant to even put the kid on varsity, let alone start him. ALL of the other coaches (including me) convinced him to do it. He caught hell, mostly from parents of older kids. Glad I'm not a HC and never will be!!
