The presidents' 2 main reasons it won't be expanded beyond that are: 1-They want football to remain a 1-semester sport. 2-They are worried about the increased risk of concussion-related brain damage. The article spins the second reason as "it's not really about money, but doing the right thing." Wrong. OF COURSE it's about the money; it's just that money issues and "doing the right thing" happen to coincide this once. Massive class-action lawsuits have been filed against the NFL over their responsibility for the long-term effects of players' concussions. The school presidents want to limit their downside exposure to similar lawsuits from former players if (or rather, when) the issue turns into a proven moneymaker for the lawyers. The presidents have no illusions-their schools are juicy multi-billion-dollar-per-year targets should that lawsuit settle or go against the NFL. A similar lawsuit against an athletic department could force a school to lay off teachers, and nobody wants that.
