Interesting Dilemma – NFL or Rhodes?

Here’s an interesting dilemma. Say you went to college and played football. Meanwhile, you’re also a pre-med. You excel at both and as a senior you have the choice of either a Rhodes Scholarship to study at Oxford or a spot in the NFL. Which do you choose and why?

    If this guy really loves the football feild i would suggest him to choose the Sport.The reason is that every person needs a passion to live his\her life n also enjoy it to the fullest.If he loves to play he would not do justice to the Scholarship.

    man this is a tough one…what most people don’t understand is that unlike the NBA or MLB…NFL does not have anything guaranteed…sure when you sign a contract there is some upfront money that is “guaranteed”…but as far as the rest of your contract is concerned…you can be cut or released or whatever and not make anymore money…

    this is really tough…I would go to the NFL…and if anything happened…then go to Rhoades…I mean if I’m that bloody gifted…I’m sure I can make it happen…
