As a college student, I can relate - this semester was pretty busy. I'm not the smartest guy; I get good grades, but I also have to dedicate a lot of time to homework. I took a leave of absence from my minimum wage job (no future there), but if I was in Coyle's situation with academics cutting into my hockey time, I'd probably have choosen hockey.

After all, you can always go back to school. Playing professional hockey is time-sensitive.
