you know, most of these D1 athletes can't read on a 5th grade level which is actually confirmed. they get a pass for being athletic but what if theywere required to study at the same level as other university students are on. Kids in high school kill it with the books night and day just to attend their dream school, while athletes attend by being genetic freaks

That's why the ratings for the Ivy League games are so much higher than SEC games. I know I'm certainly more interested in a player's transcript than their ability.

It's laughable that public universities can give free tuition to people - many of whom are from out of state - based on their bench press or their 40 time, instead of their academic aptitude and what they bring to the table intellectually. All kinds of deserving students can't go to college because they can't afford it (because their families technically earn too much to qualify for financial aid yet are still poor) yet Bo Buck from Hicksville, who can barely tie his shoes and slept through all his high school classes, gets a free ride because he can throw a football 60 yards.

Cause Bo Buck from Hicksville makes the University money, which in turn can be used to expand the college programs even more. Or offer more scholarships.

Yet only something like 25 FBS programs are actually solvent. The vast majority of FBS programs are subsidized by the university.

Well Jimmy the rich kid can get a free ride because he's had private trumpet lessons since he was 8 that the poor kids couldn't afford. Athletic scholarships aren't the only kind.

Suppy and demand. People aren't watching these athletes do a calculus test. People are paying to watch them play on the field. In this world, it's all about what you can bring to the table. If football is what they're good at, they don't need to be straight A students to make big dough. Of course I get what you're saying.. some people are just born with freak genetics, but life isn't always fair.

the 25 schools thing is bullsht, they could easily show a profit but they continually add facilities to bring in recruits and impress boosters.They also count revenue sent back to the school as an expense in their budget. The athletic department budget doesn't take into account the money alumni give because of sports, Texas AM's broke their donation record by 300 milion last year because their team stopped sucking dick and the alumni want to be a part of it.

I could be wrong, but I believe the number is actually much lower. Something like 4 or 5 are not subsidized.

I know at LSU our athletic department is completely separate from the university, and not only are we not subsidized, the AD gives BACK to the university.


edit: nvm i was wrong about the number. oh well.

I'm certainly "hating on D1 athletes" by specifying PUBLIC universities, amirite? Because there are no private D1 universities, amirite? Because there are no public universities at any other level of competition, amirite?

Today I learned that all D1 universities are public, and everything below D1 is private.

The root problem is Universities are for profit. Tuition shouldn't be out of reach for anyone in the first place.

Another thing to consider is other countries have sport development programs (clubs) for athletes outside of Universities. In the US the Universities are the development programs. The athletic departments are literally a college of sports. Sports help drive the economy.

The quality of college sports and pros in general would suffer. Of course there would be some exceptions, but college athletes make their sport their whole entire life. School stays on the back burner. If they have hard GPA's to meet, that would be less time to dedicate to the craft and the talent and skill levels would suffer.

we're aware, but you have to take 1&2 to get to 3.

Think you missed the point.
