I think it's time to separate the college sports industry from the academic institutions entirely.

If football and basketball had legit minor leagues like baseball does this would be a non issue. College athletics by definition is amateur, yet in many places the college team is the pro team and generates enormous amounts of revenue.


The baseball and soccer models work. You can go pro and make money at age 18 or pass on the money and go to college for 3 or 4 years.
