Or at least alive

Or at least college degreed.
It also guarantees many of your coworkers have varying degrees of brain damage.
How many of them actually graduate?
Somewhere between 40-50% get a bachelor's degree
Non American here, how does that happen?
They get drafted from colleges. So they need to be enrolled at a university to be seen/eligible for the draft.
Pretty much every NFL player comes through the high school/college system. A student plays in high school, and if they are good, will win a college scholarship. Dependign on the college, a player can not study anything but football for four years.
Yes, there are open tryouts for football teams, but it's very rare that someone who hasn't previously played at a high level can just go to the NFL.
To play in the NFL you have to have been out of high school for three years. Also college football is the only practical way to develop football skills in those three years so basically all NFL players attend college.
Colleges make billions off advertising and televising sports. They will accept and artificially keep up the grades of athletes who bring in lots of money, as payment for the risk they put in to earn that revenue.
Not only does it harm the students by not demanding they apply themselves and become truly educated, they are also exploiting them and not compensating them. In fact it's against the law for them to give them money or gifts and has caused scandals in the past.
Some of those kids don't graduate, or graduate without having to learn, or are injured, permanently or not, ending their career and their scholarships, and end up with nothing to show for it. It's really disgusting.
And people EAT IT UP. College sports are HUGE, and in some cases, far more popular than professional
Thanks for your reply, that's terrible like all of that!
But I guess it all starts and ends with $$$
Yup. The argument against paying college athletes is that the education is supposed to be the payment and schools wouldn't be able to afford it, except they can afford it because of the aforementioned revenue and tuitions which have exploded
