Or maybe we're just not as smart as they were back in Marty's day....
I think part of what's happening is that athletes have a multitude of outlets. Plus, look how few kids play baseball as youth anymore; particularly once they hit their teen years. My son played knothole through his sophomore or junior year, took a year off, but he couldn't find a team as an 18 year old that wasn't select. He may try to play intramural at OSU, but we'll have to see.
