    IIRC, Russell Wilson done this too.

    You might want to peg that link, it's got cuss words in it.

    It's not that complicated. NCAA rules allow student athletes to be professional athletes and still compete as long as they aren't on scholarship for any sport for which they are a paid professional.

    So, basically, he can continue to play football for Oklahoma but cannot play baseball for them.

    I replaced the linked article with another that lacks profanity.

    Iím a baseball guy, so Iíve been following this one closely. I do wonder how hard is he going to work at football this year with the baseball money coming his way. How does Coach Riley manage a QB room when one of his guys is in this position. It will be interesting to follow.

    Next step - Saban has a booster buy a minor league team and every Alabama football player gets a baseball contract.

    If Kyler played at the barn, he would be in the top 10% player income.

    I am surprised the Aís are OK with him not showing up this summer and playing rookie ball. If I am paying him this much I want his focus on baseball.

    Could he play baseball, not on scholarship?

    Baseball is so different than football. It will take Murray years to be ready to start for Oakland. So why risk having him walk away, making that draft pick a total waste, over one season of minor league ball? If you believe that Murray can be great, you let him play.

    They did, however, limit him to only one year of football. Murray has 2 years of eligibility remaining. So Murray has to get it done this year.

    If you are receiving a scholarship for any sport, you are considered to be on scholarship for all sports that you play. He played on the Sooners baseball team, but now he can't do that any more. But he can play any other sport.
