There is a positive and exciting side to college sports as well. I look forward to the Final Four. The young men and women are making their own choices and enriching the lives of many woth their effort and skill. Recently I saw the movie Glory Road about the five black players starting for Texas Western when they beat Kentucky in the finals in 1966 and how that event played into the civil rights changes going on in the country. And if you remember the end of the movie these atheletes led successful lives whether or not they played pro ball.

College sports also give a chance for college to some individuals who might not otherwise afford to go.

Do you have any evidence that atheletes who make it to the final four but not to the NBA have terrible lives? Why be sour on reaching the top in your sport.

Perhaps, Bob, you are missing the point, and that is that these players ought to be paid for all the money that they are being used to make. Why should they want to entertain everyone for free, when they are participating in the nations second largest sporting event? Who could blame them for getting out of college ASAP under these conditions.
