College football has proved Karl Marx right about how capitalism dissolves old social arrangements: “uninterrupted disturbance of all social conditions, everlasting uncertainty and agitation . . . all fixed, fast-frozen relations . . . are swept away . . . all that is solid melts into air.” Blame college football’s turmoil on male beer-drinking truck drivers, and technology.
Re: George Will on Karl Marx and College Football...
From the comments under the article:

As a Liberal White Irish Catholic woman Pornography executive from Los Angeles California, the Washington Post's George Will should go to my former hometown of Las Vegas Nevada where SPORTS GAMBLING is considered BIG BUSINESS. For many of these SPORTS GAMBLERS, many of them come from the Working Class or Middle-Class where GAMBLING is now a way to supplement a family's income. With GAMBLING now systematic throughout America's economy, those in the American Public who are struggling financially can use SPORTS GAMBLING as a way to alleviate financial pressure & raise hope. For a Conservative Republican like George Will, MARXISM has now gone down to America's LOWER CLASSES where the PROLETERIATE can use freedom such as Gambling.
There you have it...the key to raising America's hopes is sports betting in Vegas!!
Although I haven't figured out why her being a liberal, white, Irish Catholic, woman pornography executive from Los Angeles is relevant to her point...
