Let's be honest, a lot of these kids are getting total B.S. degrees. But that's an entirely different issue with CFB IMO.
I disagree with a degree is a degree, most employers will hate on a football player and question the validity of his grades and actual knowledge of what he studied
there is no doubt in my mind, the same way serving the military doesn't guarantee you anything either
I got friends who are jacked up in the brain and although could handle a lot of work people won't mess with them out of fear... its sad as hell
Well I'm not calling for the end of CFB. I just think there needs to be some changes in collegiate athletics as far as priorities go.
Who the fuck does this guy think he is?

Which is why supermario decided to bring it over and prove how awesome he is at finding great articles for all of us to get dumber from reading them just like him

I'm starting to wonder if Gladwell has multiple personality disorder... Surely the guy that wrote The Tipping Point isn't the same one who penned this article.
too long.. did not read...

Gladwell wants to turn back the clock to 1910 when schools played on Saturday afternoon with no TV or radio. The athletes were students first and the game was played at a little above HS level.
Well you can't put the genie back in the bottle. Things grow and mutate and we now have a sport that's really a bastardized hybrid of amateur and pro football and it's going to change even further. I think stipends will be increased for scholarship athletes and it will become like the Olympics have a realization that the line between pro and amateur is a thin and fuzzy one.
Competition rules like number of scholarships and amount you can pay will continue but the players being paid a more generous stipend takes the "risk for no pay" argument away from Gladwell. Technology and rules changes will help the head trauma issue but if a player knows the risks and wants to play no one else should have any say about it.
Looks like another perfect day.
Since when is it almost assuredly?
