    I agree that the players should be able to opt out of meaningless bowl games; but also think that it’s overused. I this this was a great article but vehemently disagree that bowl opt outs are “occasional” as Connor suggests. Some teams had **** near 10 players opt out.

    I agree with Herbstreit and Howard to an extent. Some players don't love the game, some do, but they all love the potential to make millions. And that's fine. But someone tell me, why should Nakobe Dean or Jordan Davis or any other high draft prospect play in the upcoming NC game? What's in it for them, other than pride? Their draft status is locked and all they can do by playing is risk an injury that would harm that status -- potentially permanently. I believe they should play but believe you me, my friends, the day is coming when even playoff games will be deemed "meaningless" because they don't put dollars in the players' pockets. And then that same theory is going to trickle down to star players on mediocre teams who will just quit in mid-season. And even why do star high school players play in All-Star games, risking a chance at college stardom AFTER they have a scholarship. Watch for it because it's going to happen. Go Dawgs!

    @MontanaDawg I agree with you on that issue with Stetson. I'm thinking of the elite guys -- maybe like Tykee Smith once he's healthy -- who transfer up the food chain to a school where they can win and improve their draft status.
