to me the whole you are losing so much to quit college and go pro, never made sense to me in any sport. the football player luck probally lost 5-6 million in carreer earning to stay another year at stanford. he probally made stanford atleast 5-6 million but they aren't going to give him that.
Football and tennis are apples and oranges. A tennis player has to be in the top 150 range to even break even on expenses. There are 32 NFL teams with 53 man rosters and all those athletes have contracts. Quite a bit different being top 150 vs top 1500 with a salary.
