    Ralph Nader: Replace College Athletic Scholarships

    Ralph Nader proposes replacing athletic scholarships with need-based aid - ESPN

    Something will evenutally happen (and probably needs to happen) to college athletics financing (like the NCAA losing its tax exempt status). But I'm not sure that need-based financial aid can be made into a workable solution...

    Ralph Nadar- The no fun candidate... He sounds more like a job killer than a consumer advocate or a professional politician without a cause.

    Scholarships are already need-based...they're based on the need that an AD has for an individual's talent.

    "de-professionalize", "win-at-all-costs"; wish he was a tax payer advocate and get these same problems out of our "so called" representative government first...

    This is a non-starter. No chance schollies are going away any time in the near future.

    No problem with the schollys. Heck the make a large majority of profits for a university. The fact athletic programs are still tax-exempt is a joke though.

    Re: Ralph Nader: Replace College Athletic Scholarships

    what about giving out $200,000 to star players
    or gold Cadillacs?

    those can stay.

    Universities make deals. "I'll give you a free education if you come here to play" Oh btw, you'll make us a nice chunk of change in the process.

    Re: Ralph Nader: Replace College Athletic Scholarships

    What percentage of athletic scholorships given out go to students who would be able to go to college without them? I say the scholarships are already going to the needy, not just that, but the money athletics brings in, helps the entire student body.
