For a student athlete, sports medicine is an easy problem to get caught up in. You really don't know the quality of care you will receive until something happens. The article makes it seem like negligence occurred.

In Varga's case I sympathize with the issue but as I recall, he did not go to Yale for the chance of an NFL career. He had plenty of other offers, including scholarship schools with top sports medicine facilities. What he experienced was unfair but if he really wanted to roll the dice he could have gone for an independent second opinion. If surgery was needed he could have made some kind of financial agreement since he probably did not have medical insurance beyond the university.

If I am gearing up for an NFL combine and a shot at millions, I am doing everything I can to get my body ready. That is unless Varga just planned to go on to med school like he originally stated when he committed to Yale.
