This morning when I logged on to Twitter I noticed a ton of updates from Jalen Rose
my negative about college hoops/sports is the flagrant exploitation of college kids-I will list a few reasons-HOW THIS TAKES PLACE
player signs letter of intent-coach decides to go to another school/or the pros for a bigger deal-to transfer-player has to sit out a season
google how much money is generated by the NCAA(for decades)-tv/tix sales/gear/reg season/conf tourneys/ncaa tourney/bcs games.
college coaches have no salary caps-they mk money from the schools-shoe companies-commercials-camps-tv-radio-appearances.
the coaches even are allowed to hv agents-in a lots of cases-that just so happen to end of representing(wink)their best players in the NBA
what happens to the players who dont mk it to the NFL or NBA..that helped generate billions to coaches-shoe companies and universities?
a degree does not guarantee a job-what if you need more than for years to earn a degree?
college athletes are not allowed to work during the school year-WHY-your sport is your job- just not being paid to do it
so as you enjoy the NCAA tourney-note-ONLY 60 players(incl overseas)will get drafted-the underclassmen will head bk to campus-
majority of the seniors who helped generate billions..for colleges and coaches will head into obscurity..and a ton w/o degrees..SAD
