    if a player stops playing football on a football scholarship, does that mean he can attend class for the remaining 3-4 years?
    this means any freshmen who gets recruited can just quit the team for this reason and go to school on scholarship if this is the rule.

    if you let player A do this , then player B,C,D,E .. you have to let all of them do it.

    I don't remember in the 90s you can have that happen.

    Sign with a school, refuse to play football for the school and still get a free education? Brilliant

    You're right it isn't the 90's/2000's/2010's.

    Is it fair for the other athletes who decide to play ?
    aren't they subjected to racism in the world as well?

    what are they going to do? drop out and go straight to the NFL draft?
    because the NFL loves players that don't play in college.

    And yes, I'm watching Predator 2 (Danny Glover, 1990) on my UHD Bluray Disc on my LG OLED (calibrated to perfection) with some Dolby Atmos sound

    Right here, Right now, there's no other place i want to be

    Cooks seemed destined to be the next Texas kid to star for Ohio State ala Jeff Okudah and was pretty stoked when we pulled him.

    Just don’t understand how we aren’t putting more players in the NFL.

    He maxed out in high school. It happens and wish him the best at his next school. I'll be more upset if we can't develop any of the talent from that class.
