Money Madness Mars College
Educational football System
The name of the game is M-O-N-E-Y and if you don't like it,:
then get out.
The business of college football is getting frustrating, as Gomer I
Jones, head mentor at Oklahoma, will readily testify. It seems
that the Sooners were all set to meet Florida State in the Gator
Bowl earlier this year when four of Oklahoma's star players revealed,
a bit red-faced, that they were ineligible for the game. It seems as
though someone forgot to tell them that when one signs a professional
contract one is no longer eligible for amateur competition.
The boys were a bit dismayed because they had figured that
since the contract had been undated, it really wasn't a contract
at all. Maybe they thought it was a special invitation to attend a
barbecue session after the Gater Bowl contest.
So now Jones, along with some other football coaches, has
given the axe to all future pro scouts from the clubs involved
who have intentions of visiting the Sooner campus.j
Some of the more ardent boosters of college athletics immediately
lambasted the pro clubs in general for putting business ahead of
morality, corrupting these college players, and casting a shadow
over college football.
Blame the Pros?!
National Football League Commissioner Pete Rozelle responded
by saying that he would investigate the matter in considerable
detail to discover if any NCAA and NFL bylaws had been violated.
This is pretty decent of Rozelle, since most of the blame for
this mess can be laid on the doorstep of college athletic administra-
tons. The pro clubs should be exonerated since they're in business
to make money and the only way they can do this is by grabbing
off the, best players. The pros make no bones about this fact, but
the colleges are to blame for turning collegiate athletics, specially.
football, into one big rat race where the dollars and cents have
become the prime, if not the ultimate, goal in the minds of most
The Deal
If a high school football player is any good at all and is
attending a fairly well-known school, things get off to a bigbang
during his senior year when numerous colleges begin giving him the
"big pitch."
The pitch is fairly stereotyped. The college athletic represen-
tatives are in fierce competition and it's the college that can
come up with the best deal that usually lands him.
Although occasional references may be made by a small handful
of institutions to the superior academic atmosphere, the major
emphasis by most centers around a full-ride scholarship, extra
monetary benefits, numerous,, tutors, and easy courses.
The college is already impressing upon the athlete the fact
that moneynis of primary concern. A full-scholarship is a tidy chunk
in itself, but when the college begins tossing in free books and
laundry, pocket money, a soft job, and an extremely lucrative
summer job, the athlete's ears perk up.

when he

face it, who ever heard of a college student who really
lucratve summer employment opportunity from an alumnus
doesn't even need one red cent for his college education?

Those on-campus jobs during the school year shouldn't be
overlooked as not being, financially gainful endeavors either.
A couple of years ago I met a college sophomore who had played P
some basketball in Detroit. A couple of small Michigan schools
went after him, both offering scholarships. When I saw him
he told me that the college which he was attending had secretly
given him a job working in the school kitchen for two dollars
an hour. He said he felt a bit guilty knowing that the other
boys with whom he was working were only receiving ninty cents
for the same chores.
Although the Big Ten used to have a "financial need" factor
in its bylaws, it doesn't anymore and neither do most of the other
conferences throughout the nation. This obviously serves to illustrate
the frankness the colleges employ in using money as their chief
weapon in attracting athletes.
Money also seems to be the, main reason the NCAA is reinstitut-
ing platoon football. Playing the game that way is more exciting
to the fans who are now expected to turn out in larger numbers,
thus endowing each athletic department with more money with
which to obtain more athletes.
Sometimes there are exceptions to the rule and the University's
athletic department headed by H. 0. (Frizt) Crisler might be one.
Crisler has always been the prime advocate for reinstating the
"need" factor in athletic scholarships and for reducing the number
'of scholarships available to each Big Ten school. Crisler is openly
opposed to any professional tendencies creeping into the college
ranks. Unfortunately, Crisler is in a minority.
After four years in college the athlete, if he has panned-out,
has been well-indoctrinated 'with the idea of grabbing the best,
and that means the most lucrative, professional offer to come
along. It appears that Alabama and Notre Dame really know
how to educate their athletes, for quarterbacks Joe Namath and
Heismann Trophy winner John Huarte recently signed for a
ludicrous $400,000 and $200,000, respectively.
When money like that starts floating around, any smart athlete:
knows that he's in a big business. But, when the business gets so
big that millions of dollars are spent each year by colleges just!
to win some football games, one realizes that the stakes are too!
high for the amateurs.
So when Oklahoma played in the Gator Bowl minus four!
starting players, Jones shouldn't have griped. The school and the
sport got just what it deserved-four college football players who
had learned when to grab a good deal.
