We should be sending students who are inventing, engineering, creating, solving, and discovering cures to colleges and universities for free. Not the quarterbacks or wide recievers or shooting guards for free. We should return colleges and universities to what they were intended for... not minor leagues for professional sports. They have become irrelevant and more expensive than they are worth.

Ehh I can't agree on the free thing, I would say they should have more scholarships open for these fields though to give students a chance to get those and then get into those fields.
Also I will add that those that get sports scholarships do not go to college for free, only full athletic scholarships pay for A “full” athletic scholarship covers the following costs of college: tuition, certain course-related fees, room and board, and the value or provision of books.
While a normal athletic scholarship may not cover all student fees, and also may not cover things like parking fines, a single room in the dorm, library fines or late fees, etc.
And some scholarships are done like this
In NCAA Division I, the following sports are “head-count” sports: men’s and women’s basketball, football, women’s gymnastics, women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. All other Division I sports, as well as all Division II sports, are “equivalency” sports. In equivalency sports, coaches can divide their scholarships up as they desire, as they long as they do not exceed the total allowable scholarship value available in their sport. A few examples in Division I are baseball with 11.7, softball with 12, and wrestling with 9.9 scholarships. One athlete on the team may be provided with the cost of tuition, a second athlete on the team may be provided with room and board, and a third athlete on the team may only be provided the value or use of books.
So it's not exactly as simple as you make it out to be.0
