You could have a 5 year up-or-out system; no academic requirements at all, just focus on FB, get paid, and you're free to transfer at will. One year of post-FB tuition full ride for every year played. If ended by injury, you get immediate 5 year full ride.
I am also OK with universities licensing their stadiums, trademarks, etc, to an openly professional NFL development league that has no pretense that players are actual students, just that they will get a free scholarship after their playing days are over.
That said, I also support college athletes having to meet the same entrance requirements as every other student at their colleges. Put their applications in the same stack as everybody else, and athletic achievements don't count
at DePaul my son had a couple of friends on the basketball pep band who were paid like $30 or something per game to play, which would have been NCAA probation if it had gone to the actual basketball players. That is insane.
That's it for today's family pics (but please keep em coming). Now for the street & wilderness find portion of our program:
1941 Dodge Custom Royal sedan, in WW2 staff car olive drab paint.
Ol' One-Eye Tommy Milton is inside first row, #6, in a Durant-Miller Champ Car. Note that the track was paved with wooden planks. You had to have cast iron, uh, fortitude to race 98 mph on that surface.
Welcome to Fox News 1929... well, 20th Century Fox Movietone News anyway. The prehistoric photojournalists here are off to capture some newfangled talkie newsreel footage in a 1929 Dodge delivery.
*As I have discussed before, pre 1908 (and the Ford Model T) cars were mostly a rich man's toy, and average Joes would actually pay for a souvenir photo of themselves sitting in one. I've gotten such photos before, usually from county fairs and such.
