Should universities be allowed to take out 10 million dollar insurance policies for certain players ?

why not? They have an "insurable interest." Can see PR problems though

Show the bravest of the brave kids that you have their back.  Go to http://www.childrenscancercenter.org/

Just check out the site or maybe like them on Facebook . .  or Share the site on Facebook, re-tweet one of their tweets.  Not everyone can give money to support this great cause, but its easy to give 10 seconds of your time to help spread the word about The Children\\\\\\\'s Cancer Center

 Who is the beneficiary of the policy the school, the player or both?

Yes, but only if it involves Jameis Winston.  It is  America's ultimate crusade that everything be done so he can torture gator fans for 2 more years!   ;D


Seriously, this NCAA rule has been in place long before Winston came to FSU.   With all the talk about student athletes earning degrees fresh in everyone's mind only silly bitter rivals would complain about such a thing.

And yes, it benefits the NCAA!  FSU!  and Winston! by making this available.   There is one other group that is angry about this... LOL  Those that have placed a bet on the mortgages of their house that Winston will go pro for the 2015 draft. ;)   Hey he can still change his mind!  8)

While it does appear to be a valid loophole, its odd that no ther schools are doing it. Or that fsu hasn't done it previously. Or that it's just been under wraps?

Someone posted that Texas A&M did this for a player recently. Others have said it is a new NCAA policy recently instituted.  With 37 underclassmen who declared and went un-drafted it could very well be a new NCAA policy. From my understanding it is available to all.
