It's a crappy way to have your football career ended but any of the guys who have come to the realization that they are not going to be one of the extremely select few to make it in the NFL could really capitalize on this.I'm not sure that's the choice here. They're not just choosing to "live" in Colorado - along with that choice comes all of the benefits of the scholarship but without having to do ANY of the work for those benefits.
And that's the FALLBACK option if they don't want to try and continue their football days elsewhere.
Seems like an awfully good deal to me! If you only played one season of football at Colorado, this is like 3 years worth of "severance pay" as us working folk call it, lol.
The problem is that most power 5 scholarship players believe they are going to play in the NFL, so many will be more likely to continue chasing their NFL dream as opposed to taking the free school.
