In fact I'd somewhat boldly state that nfl players wouldn't be in the nfl if not for their collegiate training.
It amazes me how completely written off the scholarship aspect of this is being written off. A free education without the burden of being obligated to later pay back staggering student loans is something most people in this country would claw your eyes out for (I know I would.) And yet, in this thread I've seen it called completely worthless, a sentiment I quite literally laughed out loud at.
Not losing any sleep over this. Those players will be perfectly fine.
