re: Players shouldn't be able to leave early.


The rule applies to all schools..It is what it is!
Why do you think all these def. players want to come here..To play great and move on to the league early

You have completely selfish reasons to keep players around for at least 4 years

And think about it from the perspective of the players: they would all have a 4-year degree in SOMETHING, which would sure help out if they had a career-ending injury early on.

so much butthurt in this post.

This isn't four or five decades ago. Players have a small window to make it to the pros and be successful. Instead of blaming the athletes and crying like a bitch about them taking advantage of the opportunity, why don't you look forward to the young talent coming into this school.

Some of these guys have an opportunity to provide a better living for their entire extended family. How can you pass up that chance? I hate when they leave, but I can't blame them at all.

And what if they don't graduate in 4 years? They can't go pro then?

This thread is as dumb as they come and I don't even know why I'm in here. As someone has already said, your reasoning is nothing but pure selfishness.

And think about from this perspective. Say you force them to stay an extra year when they could have gone to the NFL and made a guaranteed million dollars or more, get seriously injured in that 4th year, and then cant make an NFL team.

Now they're stuck with a sports management degree, no NFL job, no real job prospects...but hey at least they dont have any student debt to pay off

You sound selfish. Those players put their bodies on the line every Saturday in the fall for their school. Why not get paid for it when you get the opportunity by going pro?

So you think Clowney isn't ready for the NFL right now?

If anything, they should be able to leave earlier. It seems wrong to be able to tell a grown man he can't make a living in the thing he's best at.

Actually, they probably can leave earlier and play in Canada - isn't the rule an NFL rule, note NCAA?

A lot of these players have kids...who are you to tell them that they can't go pro and provide for their families?? Please tell me you understand this...if you don't, you, my friend, need some help.

re: Players shouldn't be able to leave early.


I miss seeing the guys that leave early playing in TS. That is admittedly selfish of me. The NFL is their dream, and if they are ready to move on to their career, then they should go. I hope that all of them listen to sound and unbiased advice though. Too many listen to family, friends, hangers-on and/or agents looking for a fast buck.
To those that move on, a heart felt thanks for the memories. I appreciate the dedication and hard work you put in so I could enjoy my Saturdays in TS.

this post says everything about why you want them to stay in school.

If I was going to have a career ending injury at 22, I would prefer that to be my rookie or 2nd year in the NFL, not as a senior in college.

Stop being selfish. These guys put in hours a day year round to play football at the highest level, entertain all of us and earn LSU millions and millions of dollars. I wouldn't fault a single one for cashing their lottery ticket as soon as they could.

You could have saved us all some time if you had started with this.

What you're saying is that these guys' only value to you is your entertainment, and should therefore be unable to move on and make millions of dollars.

Pretty much a typical attitude I'd say...
