My son was offered a scholarship to UF to be a Pitcher on their baseball team. Well I have my reservations and I know it’s a great school and will be a great opportunity and great education for him but my ex his father lives there. He was also offered a Scholarship to FSU for the same thing and I think he should go there instead. I told my son I don’t think he should go there. And my son said no he was going to go to UF because it was a better program and said it wasn’t my choice which lead to a massive fight and soon thereafter my husband called and asked what my problem was and why I was being so spiteful I mean my husband is still angry but has always had a good relationship with our son. But I don’t understand how he thinks I am being spiteful! What do you all think.

Well as both are full ride scholarships not much cost involved as UF is only 2 and a half hours away.

So your main reason is to have him closer to you rather than closer to the father? Seems a little selfish to me. I completely understand it tho, I would want my child to be close to me as well but I still feel it should be his choice. After all he has worked hard, earned it and both are good choices. Look at the programs side by side and compare costs with him but don't put him in the middle of a tug of war between you parents. You have to put yourselves out of it, this is his time.

We live in Tallahassee where the school is so that is one reason why i want him to go to FSU.

I'm not sure I understand your reasoning for choosing one school over the other? It does sort of seem like you don't want him to go there because your ex lives there from what I read. At least he would be close to family. Do you have more information? If they are both great schools and he would do well in either school why not let him choose?
