Privatize Government Football

With their boom-ballooned, debt-financed physical plants, not to speak of a hothouse tangle of overpaid administrators and professors—and fewer and fewer kids willing to go deeply into debt for degrees of questionable economic value—state universities are in trouble. But here is a partial way out, without further punishing tax victims or students: sell the football team.

College football was “federalized” in 1905 by Teddie. Roosevelt, not Kennedy. And, the “colleges” have been on the dole for decades.
Why is the taxpayer regarded as the “deep pocket” participant in “sports”? We don’t build MickeyD’s, big box stores, or churches. So why do we participate in this scam?
Let the Billionaires find their Millionaire “slaves” and build their own “coliseums” without the taxpayer.
