Professional athletes have large disparities in their salaries and still do their jobs. College athletes will do the same, especially if they have any interest in a future NFL career or not losing their scholarship for getting their QB killed.

Virtually every pro athlete is very well compensated and it is a very small % of college athletes that will ”go pro”. the delta between the stars and the other players at colleges will be massive. Should cause some interesting situations. Chemistry is already a battle on teams ...add in the inequity in compensation between teammates...well ...should be fun watching the implosion.

I clearly have more faith in the professionalism of these guys than you do.

It could happen. Every place that I have ever worked since college had pay scales that were all over the place and everyone worked together.

One would have to be naïve to believe there wasn't already inequity in compensation between teammates at places like Alabama.

Players like Mac Jones and Tua didn't choose Alabama because of the campus. Those guys got paid to go there and they made more than the rest of the players.

I am not naive to think that no players in college receive illegal compensation in some form but honestly don't think that the elite schools like Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame need to partake in that practice. I also think their are kids and parents that want to do it the right way too and raise their kids to do the right thing
When your school is on top of the heep they are under a microscope from their peers who will not hesitate to turn a school in for the slightest violation - kids that go to Alabama recognize it as one of the best paths to play football on Sundays - Saban gets talent ready to play at the next level (just imagine how competitive it is at their practices to compete for playing time)
Point simply is lets not paint all schools as cheating or correlate winning with cheating
and no I am not a Bama fan!

4 Super Conferences (16 teams) with the biggest! Bye bye Big 12! You could do a P2 league; the NCAA's is full of them e.g. A10, AAC.

I dont know how many P5 teams there are, but they will realign. Hopefully relegation happens. Book it.

They became elite schools in elite conferences by partaking in that practice.
