    Excellent read and fantastic interview with Jeremy Adams on his issues making ends meet while in college. He had to take out a loan to cover his diabetes treatments. Unlike football players, other CU athletes don't get Training Table for meals. Lots of other interesting stuff.

    Here's what the article argues for:

    Relating to that:

    • Athletes should receive 100% full medical insurance. An athlete shouldn't have to pay out of pocket for god damn aspirin, let alone needles for their insulin.
    • All athletes, regardless of sport, deserve training table
