Interesting article by Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports. His take is that the money divide between the Haves and Have-Nots in CFB is widening and and growing bigger than ever. He proposes a way to even things out and bring parity to the sport.
From the article:
You want to know what would level that playing field, even to the point where it would make perfect sense for not just Michigan to beat Ohio State for a recruit, but Purdue or Illinois or even Boise State?
Name, image and likeness.
In other words, money, which is the great equalizer for pretty much everything in the United States of America. Only in this case, it’s money directly to a player.
To me, this is just another nail in the coffin for amateurism in college sports.
