Has Money Ruined College Football?

Although college football used to be a fan favorite, and a favorite for both alumni and students, today it seems to be more and more about the earnings potential. With coaches earning millions of dollars a year, players getting huge scholarship deals to choose one school over another, and schools making millions when big players sign with them, it is no longer about the game, but more about how much you can bring in to the schools. The concept of the student athlete has been replaced with the entertainment athlete, and who could draw in the most attention to their institutions.

Today, the game is focused on drawing in the biggest earnings, drawing in the TV time, and putting players on an entertainment platform, to bring more money to the schools.
