Abolish the NCAA (football edition)

By Christopher B. Daly 

It becomes clearer every year around the Bowl season that big-time college football is essentially a farm system for the NFL in which the players are not paid. That’s great for the NFL and for spectators; not so great for the players or the universities they supposedly attend.

From the story in today’s Times:

Never has the sport been so awash in money, a growth industry on campuses that some observers believe increasingly resembles professional football more than higher education.
