Putting the "Student" in Student-Athlete

Florida State cornerback Myron Rolle might miss his team's big-time game against Maryland--so he can attend his finalists interview to be a prestigioius Rhodes Scholar.

 

Read the amazing story here at SI.com .

 

Among the issues is the fact that Rolle (who earned his bachelors degree in 2 1/2 years) might pass up a million-dollar NFL career to study at Oxford if he gets the chance. In addition to being a 3.75 student, he's one of the top pro prospects in the collegiate ranks.

 

What do you think? Is he crazy for possibly passing up NFL riches, or does a special case like his warrant passing up the dream every football player dreams of?
