We're already at a point where education is a secondary (or lower) priority for many student athletes. Does anyone in the entire Alabama football organization (to use an example) give a rip about their players' education, other than to make sure they meet the minimum requirements to remain eligible to play?

At the very least, I think the highest levels of college football and basketball have completely diminished the spirit of college sports. I've said before that I'd like to see some level of professional football between high school and the NFL that eliminates the need for top players who couldn't care less about school to play NCAA football. The way college programs, coaches and directors bend and outright break rules to gain a competitive advantage is so much worse in the NCAA than any American professional sports league.
