What i find funny how people tend to lump a players' time at college playing sports as part of their "career" even though they're supposed to be amateur "student athletes".

Its also funny how it's only looked at as a "career" when the player has a good shot at going pro. You likely wont hear Kenny Mayne looking back at his time as a qb for UNLV as a career...

yet another reason why i look at it the way i do..



Why wouldnt it be a career? College ball players are paid to do a job. Free education/room & board travel etc. Any other person yourself included would have that count as income. You can take the word career out though if that is your hang up. If he built an awesome tree house would you judge his quality of work by his ability to possibly build a swimming pool? Probably not. He is a pretty damn good college QB
