THERE ARE BIG BUCKS IN COLLEGE SPORTS!

BUT WHO’S GETTING THEM?

With TV income at an all time high, and with attendance breaking records nationwide, the college football season is off to the most successful start in its history. Football in my home state of Louisiana is the major subject of discussion as the LSU Tigers were ranked number one in the nation by the Associated Press poll for this week.  But who is getting all the money?  The system in place now allows our young college athletes to be exploited, and the exploitation is being committed by their adult mentors.  What a deal “” your body in exchange for a pittance of basic expenses.  Read my new column that shows what a mess the NCAA has made of big time college athletics, and why more should be done for the athletes themselves.  You can read it now by Clicking Here, or by hitting the red flashing box above.  Also, check our sportscaster Bryant Gumbel’s comments below.  He makes good sense.
