Yes it is. Things have changed. I remember the days when CFB was a casual afternoon event...with a few exceptions. Then it got big....real big. And I also remember a time when very few if any 3rd yr players left early. They all played for 4 yrs.
We have to embrace change....especially if there's money being waved around. CFB is a business....big business. Time to get serious about revising how these guys are compensated.
And you are absolutely right about the life span of an NFL guy...gotta make the money while you can.
