College football is one of my favorite things in the world. But it is going down a slippery slope. I was perfectly ok with the NIL ruling, that prevents unnecessary suspensions for hundreds of dollars taken. It actually gives them more of an incentive. But, this....is just getting out of hand already. These kids are becoming incredibly entitled to anything and everything. The money that they claim to be entitled to, goes to the upkeep of the amazing facilities, amenities, and privileges that normal students have NO access to. All of that is millions of dollars in expenses for the university. These kids agreed to a scholarship, which I don't have to remind them is TENS of THOUSANDS of dollars PER YEAR, even more if you're coming from out of state. They have tutors to help them with schoolwork. If they don't want to honor the agreement, then they can pay for college like everyone else. They don't understand that Instead of incurring a shit load of debt, that over 90% of the college graduates have to deal with for 15-20 years later, they are able to be in a position where alumni and donors can help them get jobs, if the NFL doesn't work out. The normal college student has to fend for themselves. I cannot tell you how many of fellow Ohio State alumni I know wish they didn't have student loan debt--but they do. These athletes need a serious reality check of how good they have it. Where do we draw the line? When is it enough? Work your ass off, make sacrifices to maximize yourself at your craft, put in your 3 years, get drafted and make millions. Welcome to life. You earn what you get. You're entitled only to what a scholarship gives you. If you don't like it, I'm confident someone else will gladly take it. You know what happens if you complain to your boss about your "demands", they tell you to fuck off, get back to work or you're fired. This generation of entitlement is a serious problem.
If they're worried about the virus, WEAR A MASK. DO your part. Be vigilant. Exercise discretion. Don't go to stupid house parties where there are 100 people there like the idiots from Rutgers. Use common sense.
