I have an idea! If student athletes at universities wish to be considered employees they must follow work rules.

Failure to perform would result in immediate dismissal. Drug possession, DUIs, assaults, failure to attend any class or game are just a few examples.

A college athletic scholarship should be considered a pathway to a better life not an economic opportunity accompanied by moral decline.
