Re: “Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy: Nick Saban, Lebron James and the language of professionalism

At the end of the day we have to ask ourselves,"what is the goal of college athletics?" Furthermore, whose goal is it? Is it our intention to raise a generation of very educated and physically and mentally fit young men and women? If so, then by percentages, the success enjoyed by the Reggie Bushes and other higher paid professional athletes of the world are mere aberrations in the world that is NCAA sports.

The majority of the NCAA, (taken in sum male/female) athletes enjoy benefits that far exceed their contribution to the school if you use the standard of what school they could otherwise gain acceptance or afford.

Maybe the argument of the greatest good for the most people is the best paradigm for accepting the current structure. In these scenarios there are always those outliers who skew the mean in both revenue generated relative to benefits received.
