I’m curious to hear what some of you think about this exercise in opening the doors to the sausage factory, via a former Purdue football player. His conclusion after four years on scholarship:
People will probably ask me what the solution is and I don’t have the answer. Current players can discuss compensation, nameless marketing, coaching ethics, schedules, useless degrees, etc… Former athletes could discuss post-graduate education, company partnerships, and resources to find careers. The possibilities are endless but the first thing is acknowledgment. If I knew what I know now, that Engineering degree looks a lot better.
He wanted an education, but wound up getting a job. That’s what he signed up for, right?
