It will destroy college sports as we know them, and therefore I support it.
Not a fan of Big Government sticking its nose where it doesn’t belong. Not a big fan of Mitt Romney.
This could not happen to a more deserving bunch of people than the NCAA.
‘It will destroy college sports as we know them, and therefore I support it.’
for what imaginable reason do you wish to destroy college sports...?
“It will destroy college sports as we know them, and therefore I support it.”
Yes it would. But can you tell me how what they will have to substitute for it so people with no chance at all are going to get an education without the scholarships, student jobs created from them, how it falls within the education system, and the money made to support the many pieces of the programs they generate, is going to be produced.
The NCAA is a business for the institutions, not for the employees, this time the players. The players are trading their “talents” for a paid for, in most cases, education and a chance to advertise those talents to “promote” to a level of income most don’t even dream about in the world. And they are getting an education, if they choose to, so they can expand on that if they go elsewhere. But they are still using their talents to get that. Jobs in pro sports are limited so getting that degree can be a step to a good life outside the sports that got them there. And the colleges are willing to partner up with them to make their success a reality while they are in college, in their sport or business, and after they are looking to retire from their chosen field.
So don’t just look at it as a limited process, see the bigger picture. It’s more than just about the player and what he/she brings to the table. It is in trade for the good of the university and other students as well. Partnership.
LOL! I agree with you to a point...the point that college sports and academics are entirely 2 different subjects. Money makes people pretend a lot of things aren’t so. No college will admit they care less about students learning than they do about all the $$$ coming in from the sports teams!
