Why You Shouldn’t Rule Out College Sports

Why You Shouldn’t Rule Out College Sports
  • Opening Intro -

    Sports are one of the United States’ most impressive sources of revenue in the world of entertainment.

    Millions participate in them, whether it’s playing or simply watching them.


Americans love sports with a passion that rivals few other passions.

College sports have become a pretty significant pastime on their own merit. An increasing number of people are becoming aware of the significance of these sports. The NCAA and its member colleges give out around $3 billion a year in scholarships to more than 150,000 students in America. More students are realizing that college sports aren’t something to be taken lightly, not when that much money is involved. Just look at the numbers. College sports brought in an astounding $192,608,876 in 2015, up more than $73 million from the previous year. That’s a lot of money.

Campus Impact

You’ll find out how impactful college sports are if you set foot on almost any campus. Many campuses have stadiums or fields of their own, where players from around the country compete. It feels like everyone is talking about college sports while you’re in college. You wonder what the buzz is all about. It’s just college, right? That’s when you realize that some of these players go on to become professional athletes and rake in millions of dollars on their own. In addition, each athlete brings the school a ton of revenue. Some people may think that other academic pursuits deserve the money that college sports are raking in, but the fact is that people want sports.

Many schools put in millions of dollars into their sports programs. Some schools heavily rely on subsidies from the government in order to keep the programs running. It all points to the importance of college sports.

Culture and Art

There are plenty of other areas in college life. There are the arts, for example. Some people see the arts as more valuable than sports. They cringe when program funding is cut and wave their fists at sports. The college sports culture also isn’t known fully as a positive one. There are plenty complaints of academic dishonesty and sketchy deals. The truth is that many athletes work incredibly hard to achieve their dreams in this field. Don’t let a few rotten apples spoil the crate.

Whether or not you are a fan of college sports, you have to recognize the impact that they have on our nation. People’s lives are completely changed when they receive scholarships or decide to follow one of the sports closely.
