RE: Amateur sports is pretty much dead...
does anyone know where Voorhees college is located and what they're about....

I had an employee this summer that told me things where I looked at him and simply said, "no fk'n shite sherlock....that's how it 'works'. "

what they're doing is age old, tried, and tested....they simply don't matter in the schema....

A simple question. What happened to the Student part of Student-athlete? They are there to get an education, not to be celebrities.

Why didn't they create a minor league football league system like baseball? That would solve all these issues. If the colleges aren't going to create a path for people to graduate that are playing in high profile sports, then we need to completely remove college sports and let the minor leagues take over. If the athlete wants to still get an education they can enroll in the closest or most favorable school where they are current playing.

It’s been athlete - student for quite some time now.

Minor leagues would be awesome but no way are the powers that be letting go of a piece of their billion(s) dollar pie.
