Josh Rosen speaks his mind.
The UCLA quarterback recently talked about student-athletes and many other things in an interview with Bleacher Report, and he didn't hold back. Although one part that will stand out to many fans is when he tried to make a point about SAT requirements and used Alabama as an example.
"Football and school don't go together," Rosen said. "They just don't. Trying to do both is like trying to do two full-time jobs. There are guys who have no business being in school, but they're here because this is the path to the NFL. There's no other way. Then there's the other side that says raise the SAT eligibility requirements. OK, raise the SAT requirement at Alabama and see what kind of team they have. You lose athletes and then the product on the field suffers."
Rosen was brutally honest in the fact that it's hard to balance his schedule when it comes to school and football.
"I love school, but it's hard," Rosen continued. "It's cool because we're learning more applicable stuff in my major (Economics). But football really dents my ability to take some classes that I need. There a bunch of classes that are only offered one time. There was a class this spring I had to take, but there was a conflict with spring football, so..."
Rosen makes a good point about what all is expected of student athletes, but Alabama fans still won't be fond of some of his comments.
