I am a confused College Sports FAN!!!. Can someone tell me what is going on? Based on the new comments by the BIG-10 conference’s MR. GEE, it would seem that money is the only consideration these days. For example, his colleague in the PAC-10 (of which I am a life time alumna, of a member school) has already declared that academics and tradition have no place when profits are lingering. I am just confused by the hypocrisy involved in these decisions to make super conferences ; or do I dare say NFL Developmental Leagues. (okay that is a topic for another time).
I am sad thinking that college football’s long tradition of AMATURE ATHLETICS IS NOW HISTORY!!! Oh, that’s correct these athletes don’t get paid, they are still being tucked away at night with the notion that the tradition of playing for XYZ and receving and education and a chance to play professional sports was something to dream about; then I think golly gee, aren’t they already earning millions….
