    does anyone know what the business opportunity was that Bowen left for? I’m curious what he is doing.

    I think he’s joining Spence Checketts .. lol .. I dunno, but I don’t buy that story.

    The only way you leave football as a player of his caliber, is if you’re able to make tons of money this year, and make more money than if drafted. 

    I wonder if all he has to do is reach out to everyone he knows and just get 5% of them to buy. Then all of those people reach out to everyone they know, and so on, then all of the sudden the money starts flowing in?!

    Whatever it was, it must have required him to act fast and commit immediately.

    It sounds to me like a real estate investor just found himself an apprentice.

    Could it be possible that the business opportunity was being paid by a booster from the rival Provo school to not play for the Utes (and essentially screw the Utes over)?  Possibily it was a setup from the beginning and now he gets 6 figures out of the deal…

    Not saying it happened, but boosters did previously pay players in Provo – possibly they have gone a different route now…

    So could that be it?  I don’t know – but what could it be?

    I heard the business opportunity had something to do with acoustic wave technology.
