I agree with you, and of course there’s zero chance of that’s happening.
One remarkable thing is how few of the top 25 universities in the USNews rankings have good top level football teams. Notre Dame, sometimes Stanford, sometimes Northwestern a little bit. Other than that you have Duke and Vanderbilt and Rice, good schools that can’t figure out how to stop playing football, and then the Ivy league and schools like MIT, UChicago and such that play DIII football in spite of being mid sized universities.
We could make a humble start by requiring players to sign a roster sheet before starting each game. All the major programs would take an immediate hit, and half the SEC would probably have to fold.
