Abolish the NCAA (cont.)

A hat-tip today to the NYTimes‘ Joe Nocera, for hanging tough in his campaign to reform big-imgres-1time college sports. (For the record, he is a reformer; I have given up and support a total ban on intercollegiate athletics. College students should all get exercise, and they should get it on their home campus. Pro sports leagues can set up their farm teams right across the street from colleges if they want, but college students should be ineligible.)

 

Here’s Nocera’s lead:

So, are you convinced yet? Do you need any more proof that college presidents are not qualified to run a major entertainment industry like college football and men’s basketball? That whatever their academic and fund-raising skills, they are in over their heads whenever they involve themselves in the $6 billion-and-counting business that big-time college sports has become? Besides, don’t they have other things to do?
