And the University gets a new scholarship as soon as the player leaves. Your hypocrisy on this is stunning. MD leaves Cincy (during the season I might add) who gave him his first head coaching job for more money with years remaining on his contract for MSU and you have no problem with it yet you have problems with three players leaving their $18,000 scholarship after the season to chase their dreams? That doesn't even factor the fact that the average NFL career is much shorter than how long MD will be able to make money.
Saban is a much better example.
Prooves your point though and of course, helps BoG too... after Saban left, we become a trainwreck for years. Wonder what our program would have looked like if he hadn't taken the money and instead at least finished the Citrus bowl.
write-up on Bell:
1. Le’Veon Bell, RB, Michigan State, Junior (6020 E, 237 E and 4.65 E): A punishing and physical ball carrier, Bell has shown the ability to wear down opposing defenses with surprising ease. The question is does he have enough quickness and athleticism to carry over his production to the NFL. Based on film evaluation, Bell is much more of a smooth and fluid athlete, but not a quick twitch one. While he has the jumping ability, balance and coordination to hurdle low tackles and the playing strength to easily run through attempted tackles to gain yards after contact, the concern is that he lacks the explosive burst and playing speed necessary to be a productive starter in the NFL. He does not have the speed to get the corner on his own and cannot change directions and explode in other direction fast enough to bounce runs outside against the speed of the NFL. Perhaps most alarming to NFL personnel is Bell’s inconsistent aggressiveness running with the ball on inside runs, which is vital for any power back to be successful in the NFL. In the end, Bell needs to handle the interviews well, but more important prove to teams that he is an explosive athlete if he wants to avoid being a third day draft pick.
No idea who the guy who wrote it is, and I still think he had to go.

If you can start in the Big Ten you have a chance to play pro. But Worth and Gholston for sure.
