They deserve something, but it seems to me the rules of college football could be amended to include some sort of monetary subsistence.....There already getting a free college education....Plus, on top of that, I am assuming that the benefits of training facilities and other high priced accomodations that players receive at major universities, are a partial payment as well.....Granted most are there to further an attempt to play professionally, but that does not negate the fact that most will not make it.........If the degree is worth anything, then it is worth something as a fall back measure if their professional careers do not pan out. That being said, I have no objections to a third year player leaving to attempt to ply his trade in the NFL, and if it doesn't work out coming back to finish up his degree.
