College football is not a charity otherwise you wouldn’t have all that gear, you wouldn’t have all the stadiums, and you wouldn’t have all the coaches. They wanna play or they lose massive amounts of money… Obviously, dude, you have no real world experience. I don’t know if people understand how perilously close we are to the college system, not just sports, the college SYSTEM collapsing, which would be catastrophic to the economy.
