The people driving the greed and corruption in America's universities are the Presdients, not the AD. ADs who resist corporate sports are fired. It was the College Presidents who broke up the conferences two yrs ago, ending long held traditions in search of more TV money.Ollie Luck is a corporate AD and nothing more. The players get a free education for their effort and a chance to move on to the pros where the real money is. The taxpayer gets to pay for their ride and to create a minor league for the NBA, NFL and MLB. The players who did not make it in the pros have found lawyers who think they can get a shot at the money (the lawyers, the old players won't see much). So we have TV, money grubbing college Presidents, pro sports and the players who were never students at all wanting to sue the NCAA for more pie. And you get to pay for that too. I love college sports, but freely admit it is the biggest scam in America, well next to the online for sale degree.
