I don't want to hear nonsense about how they get a free education while they are playing a game. They have to fully dedicate themselves to the team while they are there with very little time to actually concentrate on their classes and homework. Constantly working out during the season and off-season, practices, travel, games, tournaments, required team appearances, etc.
If they had a lifetime "free ride" scholarship where they could always come back and get a degree (or a new degree if the first degree isn't working out for them for whatever reason) at any point in their lives that may be different. The lifetime scholarship should also remain in place no matter what happens in their career. As it is, players can just as easily lose their scholarships if they have a career ending injury or if they don't meet expectations.
