a number of colleges/universities have gone to a dynamic pricing system for admission tickets to college athletics. They probably saw player's forming unions years ago.

Used to be, some incentives for beating your brains out on the college football field was to learn stuff like leadership and teamwork, prepare for a career with the pros and hopefully be good enough to catch the eye of pro scouts.

I wonder when they stopped the old practice of soliciting sponsors to support college athletics?

Now College athletics supports the academic, or at least they say that's where the money goes... to help pay faculty and staff and provide their golden retirement accounts.

I recall back in the '70s when George Steinbrenner was a big OSU athletic supporter. Most anyone could afford the cost of game tickets. Miss the Ten Year War, Archie Griffin two time heisman trophy winner days etc.

Yeah, Woody screwed up big time hitting Clemson Charlie Bauman. He was dismissed the next day, after 28 years as head football coach at OSU.

Maybe, he also taught History at OSU. That striking incident was bizarre and can't be defended but it doesn't paint a fair perception of Woody.

Average yearly salary is 1.9 million, plus endorsements, team paraphanalia, T.V. spots, magazine ads, etc...If they can't figure out how to plan a good retirement, even if it were only a couple of years' work, then I am really sorry, but I can't be sympathetic when many, many people work and contribute all their lives for lots, lots less. It's dumb to have a chance like they do and not put away a good nest egg. Dumb dumb dumb.
