If Pac Pro model catches on could be quite the threat to the NCAA's free-labor monopoly in that age demographic. Play to start in 2018

All told, the newest development league faces a lot of hurdles as it looks to establish itself within the football landscape. The most pressing of which will be financial, with a price tag in the millions, according to the USA Today report: "Salaries, insurance, medical expenses, equipment—it all adds up."

The intrigue will come in if it's successful in establishing a firm foundation. That's when legitimate NFL prospects could decide to seriously consider Pac Pro, and the salary it would provide, rather than going the standard route through the NCAA

This is interesting, but maybe more from a player perspective than a fan's.  Who wants to watch the same four teams play each other several times during the season?  As a player though, you don't have to study and can play video games all day long, you make enough money to leave home, and it may be a better route to the pros.

It has been 50 years since a West coast team has won an undisputed NCAA football championship, so I can see why they would start the league out there.  Less competition.
Hey 49er undergrads, you are bigger than UNC-CH.  Start acting like it!
