I zoned out midway, There is nothing new in the article - at least as far as I read. In any case, sponsor money is only one of the shames. Non existent academic standards being another.

Actually, the article got better later, as I wasn't aware of some of the specific issues and lawsuits, especially regarding the baseball players and selective enforcement.

I hold firm to an assertion that it is not all "fixable" - but clearly the current system is not working in anyone's best interest, except maybe the NCAA itself's.

If you can stay with it, it is an excellent read. All kinds of stuff that I had not ever heard of.

I'm still chewing on it too. The article provides a lot to digest. I'm really surprised that there have been so few comments.
