      Ya, if they go teach in Alabama, Virginia, or Maryland. Come teach in Michigan, get tenured, and you are talking well over a million with a 30 year career.

      I long for a Lions team that is consistently competitive.

        The training they get is invaluable. People pay 4-5 figures to get a week of training that isn't on par with these universities- the education is incredibly valuable especially for so many kids who have no other avenue to get there - the opportunity to go pro is again invaluable.

        An elite education, local and sometimes national fame, room and board for years, the best training in the world, opportunities none of us will ever see vs community college and a shot at $30-60K a year mediocrity job.

        Yea they don't benefit.

        • Making a million dollars in a 30 year career is easy for anyone that tries to in an American life.

            Not if you spent 2/3rds of that time in the military. By the time I left I had barely cleared 300,000.

              But you'll have the respect and admiration of appreciative fellow Americans that could not or were unable to serve that will never attain that envious status

              So, you've got that going for you.

              Thank you for your service! 🇺🇸 👏✌️

                That amounts to 33,000/year. Not very much

                      It is incredible that in 2019 some of you have this dreamy idea of what a college football athlete's time and schedule comprises of. For me the time consumption was too much. If I had an easier schedule (which many opt to do) it may have been bearable. But I was always told, and it's true for most, that you should study 2 hrs for every hr of class. So if you carry a normal schedule of 8-12 hrs you're already cramped before you extract 4-6 hrs daily for team purposes. Even if you go an hr for an hr the time doesn't really add up.

                      Someone evolked ZZ. But didn't he do that post college? Or he could be that rare guy. He UKBB, post me 300 more of those guys and you'll have an argument.

                      You guys are just wishing it were you. Until you are in those shoes and you see your grades suffer and have to make a decision of a lesser degree or just giving up you scholarship to have a higher degree.

                      I don't ever say this, but ever ends today, You must can't know this unless you have been through it. Because some of you read some of this crap right out of a Disney book. Sounds great though!

                      BS. You earned more then $10,000 a year.

                      If not, hey, you got free room and board and when you get out you get preferred hiring over civilians

                      I'm being sarcastic of course because the wishabees use some of those same reasons to say why college athletes have it so good.

                      Trickalicious - I don't think it is fair that the division rivals get to play the Lions twice. The Lions NEVER get to play the Lions, let alone twice.
