We are so saddened by this situation.Our daughters and son-in-law graduated from Penn State in the 90's.My thoughts are along this line.Sports are great for physical fitness,mental alertness,competiveness etc.But I think this society has lost sight of what is important with the huge salaries for pro athletes who provide entertainment but do not produce a tangible product or service in my opinion.These college programs are training programs for the pros.I think that education should be our focus.Other countries are passing us in this area.Without the financial incentive would this situation have been allowed to develop?I do not want to offend sports fans, just getting something off my chest that has bothered me for years.
