Continuation of what went on in the 20's & 30's prior to WW2. MLB & college football were the big sports. You could make all kind of money playing college ball for yrs. If you got a better offer from another school you just switched schools, changed your name, and cashed in. Pro football was a minor sport at that time. Boxing was the other big time pro sport. Lots of corruption in big money sports in that era.
