Jake Butt is another example. He will probably never play again from ACL complications.
The players do not have insurance or workman's comp. The NCAA makes millions off them. Yes, they get to go to school free. But when your future livelihood is on the line, with potential millions of dollars in your pocket, why risk it.
This is an NCAA problem. Not a player problem. Until the NCAA starts to treat the athletes like professionals, and provide the necessary coverage for injuries, etc., I have no problem with them skipping meaningless games. I'm guessing the coaching staff feels the same.
