Three Very Sound Reasons To Eliminate College Sports (And Perhaps All Sports)

This is all just stuff that came to light in one day.

Here are three current stories from the world of college football:

1. One of the Louisville football program’s “core values” is “NO GUNS,” as per a sign in its locker room.

No guns!

(Apparently Ohio State has a similar sign. Louisville coach Charlie Strong and OSU coach Urban Meyer used to work together at the University of Florida.)

2. A top football prospect told a reporter he committed to South Carolina because it would be so hard to fail out.

“The academic part, it’s like you almost have to try to fail,” he said.

3. Alabama is installing a waterfall in its locker room.

That’s according to a tweet by a recruit which was seemingly confirmed by a Crimson Tide beat writer.

The downside is that no guns are allowed under the waterfall. But the upside is that homework isn’t either.
