If a college football player stays in college to earn a PhD, can he play on the football team for the whole eight years?
Nope, no can do. 4 years, that's all. However, I know a man who was a good, not great, football player who wasn't scouted by the pros. He went to graduate school and got his PhD while he was also an assistant coach for the position he played.
I don't think so.. I think you have your 4 years then your done.
You only get 4 years of eligibility
You cant just get free stuff!
