Bout time. NCAA football has been an NFL farm system as long as I've been alive. Now it can actually be one.


But who will pay the salaries of players? If the universities have to pay them, I think D1 might just have 20-30 big time football factories who care aboit football more than academics and that's the whole thing. A lot of the other schools now in the Power 5 might just drop out because they won't be able to compete moneywise with the Texas, 'Bama and SEC types of the world.

It would be more fun if Yale tapped into their $20.8B endowment to buy the best players

Couldn't happen if they wanted to stay in the Ivy League. Trust me, they do.

The NCAA has had numerous chances to offer stipends, etc to students. They have been stubborn at every turn, taking the hard line on reasonable solutions, while raking in the cash. One of my guilty pleasures in life is watching hubris get punished.
