"If we have a great musician here ... and he or she decides to leave to play in an orchestra, nothing is said. Hockey players have left school early. For generations in this country, baseball players have gone right from high school to professional baseball, and no one ever mentions, 'What about their education?' And yet we take a different attitude about basketball and football players, and I find that unusual. We've moved closer to professional sports my entire coaching career. Maybe it's about money." -- Indiana University football coach Gerry DiNardo
