    College athletes who are on scholarship. These questions are to help me decide how I feel or should feel about players who quit their team with one game remaining.

    1. Is the scholarship pro rated? So that if the player does not contribute to the team they then pay money for the education?

    2. If athletes are not preforming well enough to contribute can they lose their scholarship?

    3. How does the scholarship work if the Coach \ University dismisses the player?

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    1. Scholarships are annually renewed.
    2. No. The scholarship is not based on performance on the field. However, it can be lost due to poor academic progress in the classroom.
    3. At Alabama, you can be processed by the athletic trainer if you're not cutting it.

    Yes Op, they should be paid. Scholarship is just another word for "job" at many of these schools.

    So the education is still free even if a player elects not to play?

    Not Play 1 game or quit all together? If you quit all together you would lose the scholarship at the end of the semester or year (not 100%)

    Put yourself in the player's shoes. Getting ready to go to the league. Playing in a meaningless game risks injury and detracts from preparation for combines and evaluations. Performance in combines/evaluations impacts future livelihood.

    Criticism of these guys for opting out is irrational.

    I understand what you are saying. Just thinking about that agreement to play for their school in exchange for a free education.
