      all it takes is a career ending injury and he is on his own. Nice to have a marketable degree to fall back on.

        He wants to play for some real money, not just tuition, room and board. It is his dream and he has worked hard to create this opportunity. I wish him all the best and so should you.

    His dad is rich, so i’m sure money isn’t that big of a factor for him. Personally, I don’t think he’ll do that well in the NFL for a couple of years. Gus Malzahn’s plays got him those yards. I do wish him the best though.

    He’ll be another casualty in the NFL. He should pay the school back the entire cost of his “free” education. Greedy!!!
