Worst case scenario, he'll have a place to stay. "Hey man wake up, I need to use this bench."

Dead wrong. Ever hear an interview with Suh? He's very intelligent and well spoken, and from what I read had a very good upbringing. He'll be a top 5 pick, which in this year's draft probably means at least $30M in guarantees. It's not like he's going out spending money on ridiculous jewelry, cars, and houses. He's helping improve his alma mater, which provided him the venue that lead to such a payday. Blasting someone for donating $2M to a university when that's just a fraction of their net worth is pretty dumb. Plus like Ruhskins said, that's a big write off. Also, if I had to guess, that money will be donated over a period of time, not in one lump sum.

I applaud his decision.

Yupp he is a smart kid. I dont care where you go, but Engineering is butt hard and requires a ton of time commitment. Being a top NCAA player and graduating out of engineering is a huge accomplishment. I had a roommate who played as a FB on our team. And yeah UVA is a terrible football program currently but the time commitment was insane. He basically had two-a-days, film study, other team bonding shit, etc. all day plus classes. Maybe 30 mins for himself in a day. Maybe.
