Our society has evolved signifigantly faster than we have, is the problem. While the ability to throw is rarely a matter of life or death anymore, it was for millions of years as our species evolved.They should get less than the academic scholarships at schools. It is terrifying that athletic scholarships can be greater than academic scholarships. It isn't the primary function of the school. . .so why put so much focus on it?
I know they work really hard to get the scholarship and keep it, my sister's boyfriend is in practice nearly everyday during the season and in the gym for the rest of the year, but there are people who put more time than that into studying and don't get jack.
Lies, throwing isn't an instinct, it is a learned skill and more importantly throwing to kill something for food is even more learned.Our society has evolved signifigantly faster than we have, is the problem.

The need for "throw" has dimminished over the past 4000 some years, but that's not enough time to purge the association from our minds. Because the need for throw went away faster than evolution can keep pace, our instincts lag, and still put an inordinate importance on throwing well.
Wrong, throwing is an instinct, throwing as is throwing as a response to a threat. Infants learn to throw on their own without it being taught to them; moreover, it's a critical part of their development of a sense of space and self. "Throw" is hardwired. Infants will tend to try to throw things when they are frightened or angry, indicated it is to be used in situations of stress, ie, as a defensive measure.Lies, throwing isn't an instinct, it is a learned skill and more importantly throwing to kill something for food is even more learned.
Wonder why? Throwing a baseball or a football is much closer to the type of throwing that could result in a kill, and thus importance is placed upon it.Besides, no one throws more than jugglers and we aren't getting thousands of dollars to go to a school.
I wasn't debating the whole "they make money for the school" debate, I was saying throwing has nothing to do with this at all.Why should jugglers be paid when they don't make any money for the university?
These kids playing in the NCAA tourney, or the tons of Bowl games are making tons of money for their university and for ESPN, as well as the multitude of sponsors. They are getting totally shafted.
