Rob - As a recipient of an athletic scholarship, I find your response biased and without merit. Athletes are 10% more likely to graduate than a typical freshman entering college, with very few of those athletes going on to professional sports. The majority, like me, enjoyed competing at a high level in sports as well as in academics. To say that anything was a "free ride", is laughable. Not only does the typical college athlete take a full load of classes, we often train year round for 3-5 hours per day, study in buses/hotels while traveling to competition and some less fortunate have to work on top of that to make ends meet. You are probably citing one example of a blue chip basketball player that left for millions after his freshman year. That is the exception, not the rule.

""These guys make million of dollars for these universities for no reward, so a scholarship is the least they can do."

You know what else makes money for Colleges and Universities? Former student going on to do great things in life. When this happens, it makes the school more appealing to other potential students.

College should be about learning. Not only learning a degree, but learning how to function in life. These jocks will learn neither lesson. Not only will they be given a free ride in the class room, but they will also get a free ride with everything else. They will learn no responsibility.

This. Even though I usually disagree with junky.

It's too bad these scholarships go toward pointless degrees or a curriculum they don`t even have to show up for. Why can`t they give scholarships to all engineers and doctors? Instead they get saddled with debt while these guys get a free ride.
