+ + Why College Football Should Be Banned from the Wall Street Journal The costs are high, the benefits to students are low, argues Buzz Bissinger, and academics pay the price. + Sports Journalist, Daily Beast columnist and Friday Night Lights author Harry Gerald "Buzz" Bissinger argues that College Football is an expensive and pointless excess that should be banned. + + "College Football has no academic purpose. Which is why it needs to be banned." + "If the vast majority of major college football programs made money, the argument to ban football might be a more precarious one. But too many of them don't-to the detriment of academic budgets." + "There is a false concept of the football student-athlete that the NCAA endlessly tries to sell, when any major college player will tell you that the demands of the game, a year-round commitment, makes the student half of the equation secondary and superfluous." + "Call me the Grinch. But I would much prefer students going to college to learn...rather than dumping fees on them to subsidize football programs that, far from enhancing the academic mission instead make a mockery of it."
