It's a Business

I've been enjoying Chris Pressley's blogging for the Journal Sentinel about his efforts to make the NFL. He's a smart guy, a hard worker, and everyone in Badger Nation should wish him all the best. Here's his latest installment.

One thing you can take away from this? College football is a lot of things, including a money maker for the athletic department. It's not a business. Not like the League is. Just reading Pressley's notes you start to get a feel for the business influence. The NFL is great football, but it sure isn't just a bunch of guys out playing football for the love of the game.
