EDUCATION IS HUGE THE WAY THE WORLD IS THESE DAYS SO IT DEFINITELY WOULDN'T HURT TO MAKE PLAYERS STAY 4 YEARS.


LOL, how would you possibly enforce that

The NCAA can only control who they sanction to play in their league, they can't very well force folks to stay and play a fourth year.

That would be a function of the pro-league, and I can't imagine they have any reason to do so.

But the NCAA could put in a rule that if a player leaves the school for any professional sports league. All money the college has invested in that student to be paid back in full from the professional contract. And if the student athletes enter a draft before they have graduated and ends up not drafted. He/she will still be responsible to pay the college back for all money invested under the same rule as grants. It shouldn't be made easy for these athletes to waste/throw away the money colleges has invested in them on a gambled chance to play a professional sport, when a college degree will help them in their future. Such rules should and must be put in place to protect the student athlete and the college investment into the future of student athletes. The big money dreams of professional sports has already caused fail futures of many college athletic students. There surely needs to be a clause to better help protect both the athlete and the college. Athletes should get their degree, its free. Then take a chance to play professional sports. If they fail in sports, they have a college degree that will help better their future.

I'm all for your idea IF we start paying the players...

At some point the Tahj Boyd's and Sammy Watkins of the world should be paid for the millions in revenue they bring in merchandise sales alone.

I feel as though we are already exploiting these athletes financially. We can't further do it by requiring them to pay back the scholarship. Seriously? We should be thanking these guys for the millions upon millions of dollars brought into our university and the joy they have brought each of us.

paying the players is an idea that will break college athletics.. the "nags" and all these "women`s libbers" will demand pay for their players also and this is just impossible!!if football is eliminated from title(should have never been included to start) then maybe bit NOOOOOOOOOOOO

Don't think many people remember when a freshman was not

allowed to play on the main team their 1st year. For you youngsters, yes there was JV or freshman teams at most colleges that actually played a schedule against each other. I too think this leaving early is a bad idea, you can fail in the NFL, but you would still have that degree to help you the rest of your life.

How is the college throwing away/wasting money on a student-athlete when they got 3 years of NFL-level talent out of him?
Do you think Clemson wasted money by giving Sammy Watkins a scholarship?

I wonder if T. Smith was a victim of such temptation.


You gotta be kidding me

Who is giving these kids advice anyway? Breeland definitely needs another year. He's a good shutdown corner, but he could be a GREAT one if he got better.

He has had plenty of playing time in his college career...

Could another year help him? Yes, but at this point that extra year won't make that much of a difference in how he does in the NFL. This is different from Martavis Bryant, who has only seen significant playing time this year.

I get your point, but remember...

He was injured for a good part of 2012 and thus wasn't able to get the full extent of his playing time. Not to mention, he just isn't going to have a lot of hype around him. This year he was obviously the best player in Clemson's secondary. If he comes back next year he can cemement that title (especially since I see us relying more on the defense next year).

Plus, our DBs played a lot better this year under the new secondary coach. I think he needs another year to learn from Reed, since that appeared to help him and the rest of the back end this year.

Not to mention, more practices, senior bowl, etc. For a guy like Breeland that is right on the edge of glory, this could be the difference between a good paycheck and a GREAT paycheck.

And it also mean the difference in a great pay check and the food stamp line.

Thank you for 3 great years, Good luck ...

in the NFL. You were a lockdown corner for us this year and held the secondary together.


Re: Thank you for 3 great years, Good luck ...

As a former DB, I've had growing pains watching Clemson's Dbs covering receivers for the past 3+yrs. What's your definition of a lockdown corner.
