So who with any remote common sense even thinks "student athletes" actually try academically or take anything close to a rigorous academic schedule. Even for regular students, universities are nothing more than a business. Those "student athletes" are there to make the schools money, even if you wanted to argue why don't the students try on their own merit I don't even blame them. How can you do all that traveling, practicing, healing, actual playing and so many other factors; they wouldn't be able to go in depth on harder classes like calculus, O chem, AnP, Engineering courses and so on.

Having basketball go through college is really bad for the sport to be honest. Should be set up like baseball or Hockey. None of those kids in top D1 schools are gonna get much out of those degree's. When was the last time you saw a D1 all american become an engineer. Its all for show and its all about the schools making money off free labor.

That'd work if the competition for basketball in the U.S. wasn't so high. There are 300+ D1 teams, only 60 players get drafted to the NBA each year. There are thousands of basketball players going to D1-D3 schools to play basketball, or any sport for that matter, just to get their education paid for to get their degree.

 

I do wish their was a way to limit the money the schools make off of the students though. Universities could EASILY cut tuition in half, or even make it free if they used the profits made off of student athletes. Tournaments for all major sports are nationally televised, billions are being made, but only a small bit of that is going into scholarship funding and charity, the rest into the pockets of business men.

 

America's dilemma in the modern world is and will always be education and healthcare. Free markets allow the few make profits off of them while the masses suffer the consequences of the trillions made in the two industries. It has always sickened me that healthcare and education are toyed with like this.
