With more and more cases of under-the-table payoffs being made to college coaches, athletes, etc., 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright asks, "Is the the solution to college sports corruption not more rules, but fewer?"

What if, RJW asks, the hierarchy of college sports took steps similar to the FCC and the broadcast industry in solving (to a great degree) their payola problem, i.e., legalize it?

What if, like radio stations and record companies today, universities could give money to athletes...as long there was a complete paper trail of all "transactions?"  Wright makes the point that the landscape of college sports would hardly change at all, because the most successful colleges ( UNC, Duke, Kansas in basketball, Alabama, LSU in football) have the largest coffers to pay their prospective stars.

Hear Robert J Wright and Erin Mccarty weekday morning from 6 til 9 on 101.7 / 710 KEEL, or via the free-to-download KEEL app, presented by Office Furniture Source.
