    Exploited??? They are getting a free or mostly free education (aside from the small number of non schollies) that I had to pay good money for. If anyone gets exploited it's the student fans.

    Everyone gets exploited by the NCAA. They make billions off these kids and then levy ridiculous rules on them. They can use their likenesses in video games while they're still playing, and however they want to years after the players graduate, without giving them a dime. They allow Reebok and Nike to come in and use them as marketing tools, again, without the players making a dime.

    Sure they get free education, but pretending that the NCAA really cares about the "student" part of student-athlete is a mockery. They want to maintain an image of amateurism even when amateurism died long ago. The NCAA is second only to FIFA when it comes to sports-related organizations d***ing people over.

    It's still a job with an agreed upon contract on both sides. And, not only do these contracts have loopholes for the coaches to be able to leave, but the school has the right to fire a coach at any time before the contract is up.

    As far as jobs go, you're right about some clauses. But there's more to it. By working in the state of North Carolina, your employer can fire you for virtually no reason. I've dealt with construction workers for years. And some work on a monthly basis, or just a shutdown and moves on. What the common thread is here is they are all jobs and a livelyhood. Not all jobs have the same terms of employment.
    SHUT UP AND PLAY!!!!

    Fair enough, I agree with all of that. I was wrong. In a way, the athletes are exploited.

    Oh trust me i know. Fired many and sat through more unemployment hearings than I can count. My point was is the job hopping is BS. Universities need to do more, like UNCW did with the penalty for leaving to protect themselves.
    At Least our baseball team is nails!

    More universities are doing that now. It is the smart way to go. Especially for mid-majors.
