We have two 1st team all conference players and everyone else would be off the bench guys for any other team in the conference sans Nebraska or Northwestern.
DIII would seemingly disprove your point, in my opinion.My own view is that linking sports entertainment with colleges and universities has had a damaging effect on higher education overall and was destined to lead to what we have now. We are the only nation that does this, at least in a big way, yet the others still manage to produce high level athletes without linking sports to educational institutions.
Smaller schools often use athletics as an enrollment enhancer, especially for males.DIII would seemingly disprove your point, in my opinion.
Those schools don’t seem damaged, nor is there much money to be had.
But DIII athletics is as robust nationally in terms of number of programs, athletes, and coaches, as any of it.
