For or against?
Its a question I’ve often asked myself as I look at the concept of college athletes going professional prior to graduation.
From a "fan" perspective I think this is a horrifying trend.
From an educational perspective its just scary.
So I guess I am against this trend of "matriculation" to professional sports. For me its become a chicken and egg type problem. Which is worse? That college athelete’s don’t believe a college education has more value then playing professional sports? Or that pro sports have a free farm system that they can pluck from at will?
Its a very tough question.
