Wait wait wait, so.... "elite" colleges take in kids that shouldn't qualify because rich people pay to get their offspring in?

Oh my gosh, it's almost like our entire society is built on thin facade of bullshit.

Tate Martell eligible to play immediately to play at Miami, he transferred essentially because he couldn't compete with Justin Fields so I'm guessing the rule that transfers have to sit out a year is just about dead.

What was Martell's hardship? That he wasn't expecting how cold it would be in Ohio?

As bad as the transfer rule is, I wonder how many NFL players would be willing to sit out a year without pay, and get their contract tolled, in exchange for joining whatever team they want. Le'Veon Bell is a clear yes, for one.

I believe it was listed as a coaching change....and something something Zach Smith, but his hardship was that he had no chance of starting anymore at Ohio State because Justin Fields transferred.

The thing about Bell is I would be surprised if he is the same player. You can't take that much time off and then jump right back in and be the same all pro.

Not only are they not paying them a salary, they are actively preventing them from earning what they could make simply off their own talents and abilities while at the same time reaping millions of those talents and abilities. At a school with Athletic Scholarships, I'm perfectly fine with saying our professionals are compensated with a full athletic scholarship. I'm not ok with our athlete students are compensated with a full athletic scholarship and we own all their rights and abilities to their *sport talents until they should decide to leave, graduate or we pull their scholarship.

We are quickly getting to a point where college athletics as they have been known will not exist BECAUSE of the ridiculous amateurism policy.

College Basketball is already relegated from fall and winter to basically March and that's it. If there were no 3 year rule, college football would be boring as well.

To some extent there is some symbiosis because players like Zion need to build their brand but people don't watch football or basketball in the numbers they do because of the laundry. They watch because of the talent first and foremost. The laundry argument may have played 30 years ago, it doesn't anymore. If the play is meh, audiences will go elsewhere.

College Sports are a business period.
