Just employ the Olympic model, if boosters/USPS/etc want to sponsor an athlete, let the market sort it out. Canada and Europe don't have this problem near as bad because they don't hide behind their idea of amateurism so blindly. University teams have even competed in the lower rungs of propfessional football in Europe.

It should not even be a public institution's job to ensure someone learns swimming correctly. Thats the job of athletic clubs.

Another idea would be to simply leave the NCAA. Why do you need them? The SEC could easily draft their own rules and start a league where the football team is merely a team connected with the university. I know the NCAA acts as a tax break, but I'm sure the schools know if they could afford it and leave.
