Canadian Students Miss Out

It is incredible how we in Canada have missed the boat on this one. Today (Jan 1) thousands of people across the US are thinking about the major educational institutions in their areas. Ideally they would be doing this because of research or library acquisitions, but instead it is for football. Either way, they are thinking about universities, something that is NEVER done in Canada. We are missing out.

People think that the NCAA is just a machine to push out players for the NFL, NBA etc. In some cases this is true, in many more it is not. Most players in the NCAA don't go on to the pros, but do get an education. The fact that we deny this to our own athletes is incredible.

We need better collegiate sports. What is the answer? Email me ( if you have any ideas.
