Lloyd Carr spoke about the necessity of a college degree. “College is trying to help kids mature, to help them grow in a lot of different ways,” said Carr. “There are more challenges out there than when I grew up. It’s made more difficult by the fact that in professional sports, the salaries are so great that it creates an interest, obviously.” “Those are the issues that you try to educate your players on the fact that a very small percentage of college athletes go on to be successful in the pros.” “Even those who do, the life span of a pro athlete is very short.” “So, at some point, if they have a college education, they will do very well.”
