A pro agent’s case for privatizing college football and paying the players

1. All of the major football-playing universities should lease the rights to operate a commercial football program on behalf of the university to an independent, outside company. For example, the University of Southern California would contract with USC Football Inc. Such leases would be open to bidding — schools such as Notre Dame, USC and Texas could generate massive revenue. USC football could look exactly as it does now, except USC Football Inc. would have paid for the right to operate it.
