In light of the Lattimore injury, what is your opinion on the NFL not allowing players to enter the draft until your 3rd year or age 21? ML would probably have been a first rounder after his freshman season and could've secured financial stability for his family for life. Who knows how bad the injury is, but if it's a career ender I could see a real push for a change like there was in basketball.
IMO, there is no reason to keep supremely talented athletes from making the most of their abilities whenever they can make it. If you are old enough to enlist to die for your country, you are old enough to cut college short.
Being a military member .. the part comparing leaving college early to go pro as the same as enlisting at age 18 bothers me a little in the sense that all these pro athletes get payed a lot more than men an women who put their lives on the line so we have the freedom to be able to watch them play on Sundays. I'm sure you didn't mean it that way but this is a problem with society.
Didn't compare the two at all. Simply said if you're old enough to make the choice to do one, you're old enough to choose the other. I put much more value on the contribution our military makes to society than athletes.
