College football is a business and Clemson needs to make business decisions

College football fans need to come to the realization quickly that college football as they know it is changing faster than they realize and they need to get on board with it before they get left behind.

One of the most beloved media members around college football made a statement this week that he hates “losing the tradition of the sport. I’ve always been, I guess, naïve to it”. That media person – ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit.

What tradition is he talking about exactly?

The only tradition that college football has had since the 1950s is the evolution of the game, the money around the game, how athletes are categorized and treated, and the race to be better than all other programs.
