Chuck Harner: Privatize players

Regarding the privatization of the UNC bookstore: If that’s a good idea, then let’s start by privatizing the football and basketball teams. This would allow us to avoid the hypocrisy of claiming these are not professional athletes and let them avoid the inconvenience of having to attend class. If Barnes and Noble can make more money for the university by running the bookstore, then some commercial venture could improve the profits of the athletic “department” (i. e., subsidiary). And we wouldn’t have to worry about the NCAA!
