Before you start dropping comments pointing out that this item has nothing to do with pro football, anything that globally affects pro football’s minor league system could affect, one way or another, pro football.
And it’s hard not to think that serious, profound, and fundamental changes are coming to college football.
The epiphany came during my Friday morning segment with Joe Rose of WQAM in Miami. The conversation turned to Terrelle Pryor and then college football and then the possible changing of the rules, and while talking through the issues with Joe it all started to make sense.
So one of my weekend projects, if I choose to accept it, will be to reduce to writing down some of the various thoughts that emerged while talking to Joe, and to assess how this could all affect the NFL.
For now, you can listen to the segment with Joe Rose for a preview. Or if I ultimately choose not to accept this self-imposed homework assignment.
