OMG, the coaches are professionals. Do you not understand bleeping amateurism? You just don’t get it. Don’t like it? Don’t bleeping play. Go find another Avenue. No one forced anyone.
You haven’t a clue dude. None.Yeah ok, amateurism.
So one one hand, you tell them if they don't like it, go find somewhere else to play. On the other, you're complaining that all the good players will leave and the game won't be enjoyable.
You're nothing if not inconsistent.
Give me these limitationsThey are limited to what they can make. Not to mention, they don't have time to get a job anymore.
What are these limits you speak of? Honest question.They are limited to what they can make. Not to mention, they don't have time to get a job anymore.
I was around some at my time at UNL also, the only part of your statement I would question was "downtime". that was maybe limited, but they had an upperhand at jobs in their offseason "downtime" over others because of their status of D1 athlete.What are these limits you speak of? Honest question.
A scholarship student athlete has their education paid for. The roof over their head paid for. Their every nutritional need paid for. Their handpicked tutors and support staff paid for. They are given an opportunity that most high school athletes at best can dream about. They also have down time which they can spend making money if they choose. I was around many of them at UNL and you will be hard pressed to make me feel sympathetic to the plight of the poor D1 student athlete. There are literally a hundred kids for every one of them who would happily accept the unjust burden of getting to play the game they love in exchange for a free ride at a major university.
