Intercollegiate Athletics

Two brief, interesting posts on the scam that is big-time intercollegiate athletics at The Sports Economist blog. The first is a response to the second.

As Herb Stein said, "Something that can't last forever will end." A system where athletic directors and big name head coaches in football, and men's and women's basketball get very rich, and where athletes in the non-revenue sports get athletic scholarships all thanks almost entirely to the below market pay earned by college football players cannot endure. When and how the system will end is anybody's guess.
