    What about Oregon track and field, LSU baseball, Minnesota hockey and other big time minor sports programs for which the NCAA doesn't give enough scholarships to fill out a roster?

    All it will take is a booster or business to get burned a few times on high school recruits not panning out that they'll rethink how much they hand over to recruits in the future.

    After a few years it'll work itself out.

    We call that "Florida" now

    Things have tightened up quite a bit here.

Think Texas, add all the abuses already extant, then multiply by . . . A LOT. Yes, some PARENTS will get very rich - I'm sure that won't be abused either.

    Will some deserving kids get a fair share of the pie? Yup, that too.

    Exactly....I think it is a fine idea.

    And I thought it was nuts for college programs to offer scholarships to Junior High athletes.......

    Kinda looking forward to seeing where this all leads.
