Only a small percentage of college players make it to the next level...hence the term student-athletes....it is a business for the coaches and the athletes that can go to the next level, but the majority will not.
I was just stating that (to me) leaving grown men (NFL) that are making millions (with some making more than the coach) is not as bad as leaving a bunch of student-athletes that aren't getting paid other than their education.
