the problem with the education is that players only have 18 months once they complete junior to use that package or its lost forever. this IMO should be extended for those who want to try and make it pro, but eventually cant make it and want to go to school
I think its risky if people just look at the cash and don't look at all the other things the teams pay be it room & board/all there gear/gas/cell phones etc.
