I don’t believe in NCAA bashing. A scholarship to an outstanding school and all the perks not available to the average student–tutors, adulation, training, etc.–is a huge achievement and privilege. At the same time it is a tough life with travel, work-outs, and schoolwork.
It is true that one cannot be an NCAA athlete and a professional. It is the best and only way it can be.
