Backed by Ed McCaffrey and others. Seems like a good idea, although lots of issues.

Ed's trojan_horse to give Stanford football a leg up on schools who don't recruit serious students?  The end of football at small programs that struggle financially?

Sure why not?   We have farm teams in baseball, and we don't celebrate college baseball any less because of it (imho).  It does remove the traditional association of football with the university, however.  The money's been doing that all along though.
