So those left from his original 1-2 year argument:

Motherwell didn't leave to go pro but since this argument is already a disaster, I'll give him that small victory

None of them graduated, did they? And how many did I miss? You're the big Hockey Krishna around here-- you tell us how many hockey players left before graduating. Why is a crappy graduation rate acceptable for one sport only?

Because they're white and they win.

Sigh...if i was arguing with someone who was serious about this.... Muse and Gionta most definitely graduated as they had enough credits by the time they left. And most of the others only had 1 or 2 other courses left to take (Kreider a perfect example). Summer school's a bitch aint it?

How often in a sport where you get a rare chance to make it?

If you don't make it, you can always come back and finish to get your degree once you get your money if you don't blow it stupidly. Kreider is a good example as he is close to getting his degree if not already.

Who wouldn't jump at this opportunity for security in life?

Whalepants can talk into the wind all he wants, just don't buy his arguments in the reality of 2012.

I'm not arguing whether some kid from Flin Flon should have a big payday-- my point is that "the reality of 2012" in college hockey means that a school like BC should no longer be involved in it. But its OK, because they're white and they win, right?

How is it any different than when Basketball had many black players under Skinner. Players still left early if they had a chance to go pro for the money and the grad rate is probably no better or worse than hockey?

Football is big money and it brings in money for many schools. Unfortunately, BC sucks right now and had a terrible coach and AD that brought the program down like a house of cards.

BC football usually has a high grad rate compared to other schools like Miami or maybe even Bama.

York at least has standards for his players unlike the school down the street rocked with academic problems, ( like Chris Bourque and Charlie Coyle) and off ice problems like sexual assault or battery.

If BC bb was winning NCs and the kids were leaving early to go prro there would be wringing of hands about the morality of BC basketball. You know there would be. But hockey skates through because they're white. Its just true.

And what's with kids from Quebec and British Columbia playing for BC? Not supposed to happen. I never forgave Snooks for going to International Falls to recruit Tim Sheehy. Aren't there enough kids in Charlestown?

Hockey is the most corrupt and rotten sport on campus. But they're white and they win, and the coach sounds like Rick Warren, so its all good.


Dead serious, I thought this thread was an Observer College-esque joke. Are you f***ing kidding me? Isn't the point of spending any time at any college in any field to try and improve your chances of success in a given career? What is the difference between someone leaving Harvard or Stanford early if they're ready to start a business, vs. kids leaving BC for the pros when they have multi-year, multi-million dollar careers waiting for them? They're not dropping out for Christ sake, they're going pro in their chosen field. The fact that they get a few years of guidance from a guy who stresses the kind of values anyone would want their son/daughter/employee to have is a friggin bonus.

I know for a fact Gerbe was back on campus after the pro season ended finishing up his degree the year he left.

I feel like a dumbass for taking this bait but fuck it, I can handle being the trolled for once.
I prefer hockey.
