I agree with those who say we should decouple education from sports (or something like that).
College sports has become big business. That shouldn't have happened. Intramural sports between dorms or frats/sororities? fine. This big money thing that college football and basketball has become? Gross.
I sympathize with those who can only go to college because of sports scholarships. But if we're going to have those, then education should be the number one priority. Too many athletes leave - and even graduate - without getting the education.
Redo it all. Get the money out of it.
Unfortunately, given human nature, I doubt that will happen.
