From a fan perspective I can

See a kids/kids sitting out bowl games may seem like a bad choice. I tend to view it from a perspective of it is their choice, it is not my financial future a blown knee ruins so I do not get to make that choice for them.

Too many fans forget a lot of these kids come from poverty, it is their best shot to escape it for themselves and their families. One does not take the possibility of losing that chance lightly.

Universities, Conferences and the NCAA/Bowls make hundreds of millions off these kids so in reality that Scholarship is chump change in the business model. How much does it really cost to comp tuition ? Certainly not the actual cost I can safely say, an extra kid per class is minuscule .

I will certainly not sit and pass judgement on a kid for making a choice that can possibly alter their entire life and find that those that do need to step off the fan wagon, your priorities are askew. Until players are paid a stipend or allowed to market their likeness all the power resides with one side.
