    It may be a different line of thinking, but I don't think he's an idiot.

    Reading that just made me feel disgusting. If this happened I would stop watching college football

    What he is describing is essentially an NFL D-League. Which they are free to create if they wish.

    Yep. But one that comes with brand equity that has been built up by the university over more than 100 years.

    How long would it take a bunch of Texas bajillionares to acquire ownership of UT and all of their rivals?

    The great thing is that it would help even the playing field, making the college game all that more attractive.

    I did not get that out of the article at all.....It actually read like Kurt Vonnetgut's Player Piano. I think it would kill college football.

    The real thing he wants, not a better deal for the athletes, a fair shake for the players, a better system for the schools or the fans. What he wants is a system that lets more slimeball agents take a cut of the money generated by somebody else. Implement what he wants and what will you have, filthy agents going down to the HS level trying to get in on the best potential players at that level so they can make more bucks.

    It's all good though because his solution would be just to make HS football a pay for play deal as well. As long as an agent can make a buck the system is fine with them.

    No more playing for the joy of it and enjoying the atmosphere around Saturday on campus. When your school can't pay, they don't have football...terrible, F.

    Typical narrow view of an agent lawyer, all about the money. As others have noted, turning College Football into the equivalent of AAA baseball would kill the sport. College Football is not minor league pro football - it is an entity of its own, and at one time was far, far more popular than the NFL (many of the best players weren't even interested in an NFL career).

    It is based on tradition, affinity to the schools, historical rivalries, and - commitment to amateurism. His proposal ignores all of that and assumes you'd have the same marketing value, and fan attraction by making it NFLjr. He's wrong.

    Wow. Sometimes when the dripping sarcasm should be enough, even the font is insufficient...
