Mixed emotions about this. Yes, the NCAA has made a boat-load of money off of collegiate players. Most collegiate players also have an agenda other than wanting to represent their college of choice to play a sport. They are rolling the dice to either A) get their education paid or B) the farm league for the pro's. Thse guys should have known there are risks involved with both. I suffered 2 concussions playing football in high school, and the mentality back then was shake off the headache and get back in there. I remember a team mate dislocating his shoulder and the coach popping it back in and my bud returning to the game. It was a different time- I get it. Still, to say someone didn't make you aware enough of the risks or for your care is a bit hard to swallow. I feel for these guys, but I'm pretty sure they were smart enough to know what they were getting into. Don't agree with the lawsuits.
