    There's a good case for it. Rich and powerful people examining the decendents of slaves and deciding which of those can best further the big business of college football. Hundreds of millions of dollars each season for each major university while the players who wear the uniforms and represent the best learning institutions in the world basically get their stipend and a college education. The saddest thing about this is that the recruits don't even have to know where Louisiana is on a map, what the supreme court is or how to read at an eighth grade level. That's right sports fans...slavery is alive and well.

    Why in the world aren't the universities at least honest enough to hire the players and pay them according to their abilities and talents on the football field?? Let me guess.....they're making hundreds of millions of dollars from the efforts of folks with extraordinary athletic ability and don't want to see an end to it. Jim Crow wouldn't get to first base in the modern era.

    Don't come at me with the prep for professional athletics bullshit......only a fraction of those who play in college are ever even considered for possible recruiting into the professional ranks.

    Surely you're shitting me. I live near the University of Tennessee. Each Saturday during football season there are at least 100,000 and sometimes up to 105,000 in the stands at Neyland stadium. The average cost of admission to the public is $50-$120 and some of the high dollar VIP seats are a lot more than that. Do the math.

    What happened to good old-fashioned cash and being able to sell your services to the highest bidder? If I or my kid was a star, I'd want a cut of that bowl money.

    the players can choose to pay for their tuition and other expenses or just not play.
