    College Football Will End In About 20-Years

    Thought provoking article which highlights a couple points:

    + TV revenue accounts for nearly 75-85% of AD revenue
    + massive shift to on-line education coming in near future

    I dont see the massive shift to on-line education actually coming to fruition. If anything, the college loan bubble will pop first

    I think what you really meant to post was "In 20 years Cyclones.TV will be the most viewed streaming website on the entire internets".

    Re: College Football Will End In About 20-Years

    Many college *football* programs are competitive and self-sustaining when it comes to revenue, though. You would think there would be a way to preserve that gravy train without being attached to a (potentially failing) university. A profitable branch of a firm can divest itself of the losing parts and continue, no?

    Then again, this depends on the TV money flowing, and it would be interesting to see if a football team still had brand equity and could develop new fans if it no longer had a feeder system from a university. In addition, the schools likely to survive are probably the ones with profitable football teams anyways.

    I guess that according to this guy Ames, Iowa City and Cedar Falls will be ghost towns in 20 years with nothing left but a bunch of abandoned buildings. The only jobs left would be demolition companies that are there to tear down all the unneeded buildings. Maybe we should build the SEZ out of wood, that way we could just burn it down when we don't need it anymore.

    If universities were nothing but lecture halls, I think this guy might have a point, but the day that chemical engineers start getting degrees without stepping foot in s lab is a very scary day.

    Re: College Football Will End In About 20-Years

    I think he has some good points but the wrong conclusion. I think the right conclusion would be that the rich would get richer and the poor would get out of the game. Traditional powerhouses that make money on football would continue on with less competition for athletes and an expanded fan base. The smaller schools that have to pay for athletics out of tuition fees may well drop the sport but those colleges will suffer the most from attracting students and less alumni interest. Another point is that colleges have been an extended party-time for young adults for years and that will likely continue. I find it hard to believe that most high school kids are going to want to live in their parent's basement online and give up the opportunity to transition to adulthood on a college campus. Certainly there are some that do that now but not many and not many are successful.

    I think what you mean to say is in 20 years Cyclones.tv will have bought out ESPN. We dont need Oregon money!
