Must-read Friday: The future of American College (sports) and Huey Lewis making sense

You’ve all probably by now read one or two ‘the end is nigh’ stories in regards to football.

But this isn’t one of those hyperbolic scare pieces. This is a sharp piece of journalism that should send shivers down the spine of anyone whose livelihood is tied not just to college football, but the American higher education system.

The extremely short version, if you have no attention span: College football is in deep trouble because colleges are in deep trouble because nobody can afford college or cable TV anymore.

Second piece: Sports fan and mediocre rock singer Huey Lewis writes a sharp and long overdue diatribe against the wall of horrible sound that drowns fans at major sporting events and pleads for a return to our sports-watching roots, when the sounds of the game were the sounds of the ballpark.
