Re: NCAA Amateurism Facing Test
I just scratch my head at the notion that employees of institutions that can bring in $100M+ in revenues can be called amateurs.
Something like Div. III sports I could call amateurs.
But once you get to the Div I level where the NCAA gets $6B for mens hoops, the BCS schools get $80M a year for their games, etc etc. , we're talking some serious coin. The performers-student-athletes-employees or whatever you call them are the commodities that make all this money. The better they are, the more money the school will make.
I think its a laudable thing that these institutions plow this money back in to fund other sports, but that really has nothing to do with it. These institutions could easily throw that money in the bank for a rainy day. The fact is, these schools make a lot of money off their players. That sure seems like the job I have.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you have to do is call...
