      Athletes can now be paid.

      Yikes. Things are about to get real interesting. You think the blue bloods have a monopoly now…

        I’m with you. As much as I think NCAA rules for pay are not in the best interest of the student it will only help the rich to get richer. If you’re not a blue blood school, recruiting just got a lot more difficult. I don’t see how any school could compete with the dollars Alabama generates and could pay to its student athletes. Seems like the advantage the elite schools will have might push us to another division for schools.

          Title IX is going to have some say in pay. It might be better from a parity standpoint to equalize pay and funnel it through the NCAA as an organization.

          I’d love to see Utah in D-III. There’s some fun locales out there.

            D-III has a 32-team tournament. How much fun would that be? AND, d3football.com is one of the best informational sites for college football out there.

              PS Did anyone notice the logo of Union College?

                We could start a D-III rivalry – The Battle for the Block U.

            I’m interested to learn why at least a couple of you expressed disapproval with the idea of our Utes in D-III. Please let us know your thoughts.

        Yes, stand by for Division 1-Prime with higher salaries and benefits that only a select few blue blood schools can afford.

      I didn’t find more recent data than 2013 but this is what the top sellers look like. Top sellers equals top players paired with TV eyeballs and geography balance shrivels fast. This probably can’t be solved without an act of Congress and fights in court.

      Note this is not complete. The Zona schools and Utah are highest ranked. Oregon and USC aren’t listed. I think it’s sales through a particular organization. My guess is an industry level list is behind a paywall that only companies would pay for
