    So what I take away from that article is that greedy parents pimp their kids for the money. Shocking.

    Greedy parents + amoral boosters + predatory agents + schools willing to look the other way.

    The genie is out of the bottle. Now ABC and ESPN make a lot of money off broadcasting the Little League World Series. Using the same logic as was used against the NCAA why aren't these kids, just playing little league baseball getting tens of thousands of dollars?
    I said it before and I'll say it again, having college kids with thousands of dollars is going to lead to , school discipline problems, reduced effort in the sport and dissention among team members. I'm not so sure that the destruction of football wasn't behind the original laws in Cal.

    When is the last time you heard an announcing team, a coach or a player even mention academics in passing. USC's QB made $2.4 million this year; what is his incentive to sit in a classroom? CJ Stroud made $2.5 million; has he ever seen the inside of a class at OSU?

    Remember when ND was put on probation for players getting gifts from their dates?

    Yeah that's the stupidity of all of this. All of the things that caused teams to be put probation and forfeit games.are.now.being used as.recruiting tools.

    Yeah, but I think Kim dated more than one player. She was a groupie who didn't like football only football players. Or as the NCAA called her a "booster."
