I guess if PI is not called as much, DBs can play a lot more aggressively, hold, etc.  If it is called tighter, they have to back off the receivers allowing QBs to complete more passes.

They most certainly are skewed so that they can make that money you're talking about.  If they look at the metrics they normally use to set lines and determine Clemson and Ohio State would be even, they will then move it to Ohio State -3 knowing the Ohio State fanbase will still bet it to a bet distribution that they want.  If they left it at even, too much money would come in on Ohio State.

To those going the route of "should they just live in a bubble?  you can get hurt doing anything."  Stop.  The counter of this would be asking if they should constantly engage in high risk activities because really you can get hurt doing almost anything so really there's no risk in rock climbing, base jumping, drunk driving, etc because it's really all the same.

To those claiming "you can get hurt in any game."  You're making their point.  They've gotten to this point.  The combine is in a few short weeks.  It's not a conference game.  It's not the regular season; it's an exhibition.  If someone sat out a spring game, would they be a quitter?

These two have performed at a level that almost nothing they do in the bowl game will help their draft status.  But an injury certainly could hurt it.  It is clearly against their best interest to play in the game.  So if they decide that they want to protect their future, then good for them.

If you think assistant coaches leaving to go to other programs negatively impact a team's title chances, then considering we may lose 3 of our 4 defensive coaches, we're screwed.
