They sell hope, but fail to deliver on most of it except in the cases of those athletes that go on to the professional leagues. A development league doesn't need to be set up in colleges, but here we are, another example of the Great American Way and the inherent hypocrisy thereof. A Great Way to profit off the underprivileged classes.
It's why its always better to accept a scholly at a good academic school where football is not big. Too many schools "suggest" easier degrees for these athletes simply to leave more time for football. A lot of these kids come out of university with a degree they would not have pursued if Nick Saban or etc had not pushed them down a certain path.

This case will be huge.
