UCLA QB Josh Rosen on being a student athlete

Josh Rosen

Rosen was criticized Tuesday for what some deemed a cheap shot toward the Crimson Tide: "Raise the SAT requirement at Alabama and see what kind of team they have".

So, Rosen's take on the subject of major college football - "Human beings don't belong in school with our schedules".

"At some point, universities have to do more to prepare players for university life and help them succeed beyond football", Rosen said. We're not just trying to keep them eligible; we're trying to graduate them.

Obviously, Jones is responding to a snippet of what Rosen said, but it was a classic one-liner from the ex-Ohio State quarterback, "Chill bro, play school".

The former National Basketball Association star never hesitates to offer his opinion, so it was only a matter of time before he weighed in on the hottest sports topic right now.


"It's not that they shouldn't be in school", Rosen said, per Bleacher Report. "Then there's the side that says raise the SAT eligibility requirements". Although the coaches can freely switch schools, leaving their recruits high and dry and the schools can take away a player's scholarship for something so simple as lack of performance.

"So I think that's an unfortunate comment that does not really apply to most places, because I think you can get a really good education anywhere". Last season there were reports that indicated NFL teams were concerned about Rosen's character (one AFC executive called him a mess off the field) and love for the game of football.

As usual, football won. I'm not really sure what you mean. You lose athletes and then the product on the field suffers. Football and school have gone together as long as there has been college football. "Tom Brady might be able to play three or four more years".

Now, this kind of candor makes Rosen a hero to filthy liberals like me who would like nothing more than to see the NCAA smothered in volcano runoff. They don't realize that they're getting screwed until it's too late. "I want to create my own business", he said. The interview was published yesterday on B/R's College Football section and had a controversial quote featured from Rosen himself. There are guys all over the country - and I'll say this, young men and young women - that are playing collegiate athletics and putting a lot of time into both, and are walking out with their degrees, and meaningful degrees, and experiences and ready for life. He missed half of last season with an injury, struggled with a porous offensive line in front of him and has spent the offseason seeing plenty of criticism of both his development and now his willingness to speak out on topics others would pass on.
