Quote 30 Mar 2 notes
Imagine a college sports system where high school players could choose schools on an entirely new set of criteria. Maybe one school guarantees scholarships for all four years and that can be a point of attraction. Perhaps another highlights the fact that their coaches have their salaries capped, which allows for more money to go in a trust or stipend for players.

What if the best players, as was suggested to me on twitter, now avoid the Southeastern Conference because of their state’s right to work legislation that make it more difficult to build a strong union? Would this lead a state like Alabama, where Crimson Tide and Auburn Tiger football is king, to repeal its antiunion laws in an effort to keep the best talent available?
