In more than 20 years I’ve spent studying the issue, I have yet to hear a convincing argument that college football has anything do with what is presumably the primary purpose of higher education: academics.
That’s because college football has no academic purpose. Which is why it needs to be banned. A radical solution, yes. But necessary in today’s times.
Man, if you eliminated everything from college which had no academic purpose, what would you have left? And by the way, how does high school football enhance that academic mission?
Bissinger has been, and will always be, a tool. The AJ-C ought to hire him.
