18 Wildcats graduated this weekend from KSU including Thompson, Frantz

Kansas State has a rich tradition of graduating a high number of players from their football team each season, comparatively. 

This graduation cycle appears to be no different for the Wildcats. 

In all, 18 members of the football earned their degrees and walked across the stage. 

With NCAA rules what they are, many of the graduates will return to the field this Fall as they enroll in graduate level courses to remain at the university, including offensive standouts quarterback Skylar Thompson and offensive lineman Scott Frantz.

The fact that NCAA allows people who have already graduated to come back and play another season is sicking! think about the health of those freshmen. getting tackled by people 5 TIMES THERE AGE. this is unacceptable

I don't think that's a real fear. Students lose eligibility after 5 seasons (4 playing, 1 redshirt). The opposite rule (EG kids can't play after they graduate) deters students from graduating or pursuing higher degrees after they complete their bachelor's. It also encourage fluff schedules for senior year's that create competitive imbalance for schools where students are taking more rigorous schedules.
