Mark me as skeptical on this one. Today’s NYTimes is declaring that the NCAA is on the verge of epochal change. I’ll believe it when I see it.
If more professional sports want to establish farm leagues and pay young athletes, so be it.
If more college students want to get out and exercise, so much the better.
The fact is, the NCAA has never come up with an answer to this question: what educational purpose does inter-collegiate athletics serve?
