Here's a thought provoking piece including the thread title sentence. I'm inclined to agree with this guy who poses the question why would some outstanding young players, with less than desirable academics, not opt for the European leagues, and forego the "one and done" mentality as it currently stands!

Same old song. Inter-scholastic sports are not merely a developmental school for prospective professional athletes or a social program for dysfunctional youth. This guy wants the Universities to sponser a semi-pro team that merely practices, plays lives, eats, sleeps and recreates on campus and furnishes entertainment for students . How sad.. As I've said before and will continue to say, personally I would rather drop back to Div111 and play without scholarships than go thorugh the charades to recruit the ringers that some schools believe neccessary to compete in Div1.
