How many non basketball-non football athletes get full scholarships? About 1% at best. Yes, it certainly helps to get a partial scholarship, but only basketball and football are out there handing out full scholarships to 90% of their roster.
I will take the greater good of a whole bunch of people getting cheaper tuition and having more people getting a chance than a handful of athletes missing out on college because they got a third of a scholarship to play soccer/wrestle and decided to not go on to school.
