Putting the Pole Before the Linebacker

Paul Fell, 8/24/12:
So "Debt" is chasing that guy -- presumably representing college students, in one of the few examples of an editorial cartoon lacking a caption -- into "college costs"?

So college would not cost that much, except that the already-existing debt of college students drives them into it?

Could I, perhaps, suggest that Fell has it precisely backwards? That "college costs" is instead the monstrous football player scaring the student into running headlong into the pole of "debt"? And if I can could fix that so quickly, how come Fell's editor missed it?
