This is the underlying huge issue and it's equally true in the NFL.


Most of these guys should be set for life but a huge percentage of them end up bankrupt shortly after their playing days end. They succumb to exagerated life style choices, unscrupulous "managers," really poor investments and fail to secure viable alternate employment post playing days.

It happens to good guys, too. UVa has a notable example who could not pay his child support.

They are financially illiterate in an increasingly financially illiterate society.
