RE: Boiling down the problem
The bottom line is that the top tier of football and basketball in college sports is blatantly professional, and professional sports do not belong in college. Coaches are employees - however grossly overcompensated they may be; the schools are paying them to provide a service. Students are NOT employees; they are paying the schools to provide them an education. There is a very fundamental difference in their status and their relationship to the schools.

Players who are good enough to be in the professional leagues ought to be in the professional leagues so they can be paid: I have no argument whatsoever with that assumption. They are good enough at what they do to deserve to be employees in the Sports Industry. The current system prevents them from being there - and therein lies the problem. We are trying to fit professionalism into a situation where it has no business being.
