Student athletes call foul on NCAA ad

We brought in former gopher football offensive lineman Tommy Olsen to get his take on the commercial.

An ad  put together by the NCAA has united many college athletes in calling foul on it.

The ad portrays the day in the life of a college athlete. Get up, go to class, get that run in, do a little dance with the friends, win the game, study and back to bed.

We brought in former gopher football offensive lineman Tommy Olsen to get his take on the commercial.

"It's a brief snapshot, right? And they want to show it as happy and good. But the truth is you have tough times and you are struggling in school, but then you can't think about school, and then you are trying to have relationships with kids cause you are in college. You are trying to have fun," Olsen said.
