    • Besides the enormous cost of a college education these days they are getting FREE pro-level coaching that potentially can put many athletes into a position to be drafted.  Not to mention near-pro level training facilities.  All that has a monetary value.
    • I really need to get it onto the course asap. I would gladly take some advice on drills or thoughts on how to do it the easiest way.    Right now I am smashing balls left and right on the driving range and it’s getting a bit... repetitive. Not really seeing results.   Any advice? 
    • Hello iacas, I tried to work on the takeaway - based on your video. It feels a bit weird to me, but maybe it's better. I was at a driving range after a week and hit a some hooks - don't know why 😕 Never happened before. Here is the video of one of the better shots... I can't record it from the better angle and distance, because there is a cubicle on the range and it's really small 😕      
    • Plus scholarships are only for 1 year now.  A Coach can and many do pull a scholarship.  My favorite piece of crap move is when they "Medically Retire" and athlete to free up the scholorship.
    • #5 is a big one, especially in Basketball.  Let them enter the draft and if they go undrafted or not singed as a Free Agent with 5 days they can go back to their team - AS LONG AS they do not sign with an Agent.  Lot of players are on the fringe with Pro Basketball/G League/Euro.  This gives them the chance to find out if they can make it at year 2 or year 3 and if not go back to college and work on their game.  It is also good for the college team and recruiting. Only Football and Men's Basketball get total free rides.  Not sure about Women's Basketball.  The rest only get a stipend or a partial. Plus it is so nauseating to see how the NCAA can market a college athlete's likeness and image without compensation, yet if you do anything else in the world and someone takes your likeness and image to market a product they have to compensate you. Plus each Big Ten Team gets $85 Million in revenue off of JUST TV contracts. Little Johnny blows his knee out his 3rd year and was slated to be a 1st round draft choice and now he is done.  Oh yea Little Johnny with parents have the medical bills as well, Division 1 Athletes put in 40 plus hours per week just for their sport and then attend classes as well.  It is no longer 1950.  This is a big business, the NCAA and the multibillion dollar enterprise it is can kick in pay.  It is time. Either that are strip the NCAA of it's non profit status and fire that worthless piece of total crap Mark Emmert
