Remove the restriction on attending college before being pro [1]
Posted: Jun 19, 2014 7:51 PM
 

So, if the case wins, Scooter is right. Non-revenue generating sports would disappear except for enough Title IX scholarships required by law. It would crush college athletics as a whole and demolish the US dominance in nearly all Olympic sports.

Just let kids make a decision to leave high school and enter the pros, like MLB does. And give them the option to quit college at any time they wish to turn pro. Make them employees and pay them the exact amount of tuition, room and board. If they spend the money on other stuff, kick them out of school for not paying their bills.

However, the truth is that kids coming into college on football scholarships need 3-4 years to develop in order to compete in the NFL. If they declared for the NFL draft at 18, teams wouldn't draft them. Maybe the NFL would create some minor league that accomplished what colleges do today. But, why invest in that when colleges are already there and self-sufficient?
