Wouldn't introducing money change college sports to something almost unrecognizable? Most schools wouldn't be able to afford paying players across all sports and fund non revenue generating sports like they do now. So we'd go from 119 schools in CFB to something much smaller, including losing P5 schools. If there's no salary cap, only the richest will thrive, if there is a salary cap, bags will still be a determining factor for top-tier recruits because they wouldn't be paid their true market value. If the NCAA does an about-face and starts heavily policing bags, sure you'd end up with parity, but then a team being located in a fertile recruiting ground completely loses its advantage. And at that point you'll just end up with NFL Lite.
