    Dumb choice (baseball over FB) IMO, but good luck to him.

    It's obvious that college coaches and scouts think his football talent is on a much higher level than his baseball talent.

    I know Kohler and his family...his heart is with baseball and the kid's future isn't in sports it's in medicine.

    Baseball over academics (and\or football)? To each his own

    Since when is choosing a free ride NOT choosing academics? Just making it easier on his family, and if his future is in medicine, it doesn't matter where his undergrad degree is from--if he has a good GPA and knocks his MCAT out of the ballpark, he'll be just fine.

    True, but from what I have been told, he had free rides from top tier institutions.

    Do we really need to be critical of this young man's decision? Congrats James on your decision. Best of luck in sports and your quest towards medical school.

    hey i'm happy for the kid, but don't give me this med school baloney. if that's your goal, you don't turn down a free ride to stanford. if you want to play baseball, you go to evansville. he's obviously a smart kid and made the decision he felt was best.

    Kinda what I was thinking. It's not like he committed to ISU, THEN said no thanks (even if he did, who cares). The kid obviously likes baseball more and is going to a great college that specializes in his field of choice. To be mad at him is like being mad that you didn't win the lotto when you had your mind up that you were going to win. Just doesn't make any sense. Good luck, James.
