Inequity in College Sports

Wake Forest football coach Jim Grobe could have left the university for the University of Arkansas and gotten PAID handsomely for abandoning his players. Any Wake Forest football player who wanted to do the same, however, would have been PENALIZED by the NCAA — forced to sit out one season. Frank Deford comments on the inequity.

Just another problem with the NCAA, “which is,” as Deford notes, “essentially to college athletic departments, what the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce is to casinos.”
