I think Vic would have benefitted greatly would this be true.
no bank would loan them any money to finish their education.....they have no job and they have very little other knowledge or skills.....

Student loans are not that hard to get, pretty sure that is due to government assistance

Another year in the system without drama might do him a world of wonders

I don't think they would have to get a loan from a bank. They would still be eligible for Stafford loans and whatnot as far as I know.

In my opinion it has everything to do with talent.

There are people with just as questionable backgrounds that have been drafted. Vic was projected to be a mid rounder at best, and then showed up and performed poorly at the combine. A recipe for disaster.

Yes! I could be wrong, but I think it was self proclaimed and it kinda stuck.

I hope Victor makes the squad. He would make a great safety in my opinion but I am not an expert.
