For reference -
Nate Ebner has earned nearly $12M in compensation in the NFL after only being on scholarship for a single season in Columbus. While he was voted the team's most inspirational player and best Special Teams player, Ebner didn't win any non-academic, conference or national honors. He does not have a tree in Buckeye Grove. He has a lot of money.
So...which would you rather have? Eternal Ohio State glory, or several commas in your net worth?
