could go to a service academy, put in his stint after graduating and
still join the pros. When, however, football became a mega-mega-bucks

dollars to defer their careers with the obligatory 4-6 year stint
after graduating. Likewise, the teams became far less willing to defer
signing players. Staubach notwithstanding, which even his rookie year
was over 40 years ago.
