Classes, practice, study hall, game day. Welcome to the life of the college football player or the loosely used term, “Student Athlete.” While these college football players go through the trenches and put themselves in a position to help their school, the college uses their talents for benefit on and off the field.Welcome to corporate America in the world of college sports. Football makes more money and is under more scrutiny and for good reason - this is all about making money, filling the pockets of the schools and neevr giving up on the idea that the player who wears the jersey is working for himself, the school and everyone else who buys a ticket.Oh, that sounds like NFL. Make no mistake, this is big business, there are real issues with meeting clearing house demands and staying out of the doghouse of the NCAA.These are eleven teams that would look great on an HBO Hard Knocks-like series.
