The idea to scrap any sport that is not self sustaining is goofy. We would have Men's BB and nothing else. Most D-1 schools would have to scrap football and be like UD with men's BB only. Women's sports, forget it. Div. II and III would be fine as they are not on the money chasing path. So at the end of the day D-1 football would have many less teams and almost all other sports would be gone save men"s basketball. All this change because some skilled BB players, are in demand.

The problem with paying a player (not counting a stipend) is that someone will always be willing to offer more and we would be right back were we are now, with $$ changing hands to get the 4-5 star player to attend a certain school.

Like the idea of a minor league similar to Baseball. those players that have dreams of the NBA and no interest in college, or have limited academic ability, could play there. The player would have a choice. Having the NCAA grow a pair would also help, as would increased ability of the NCAA to act. This would reguire a sea change thought process by the NCAA but is doable
