If you are not yanking- Here's an example of a reference book:
A parent's and student-athelete's guide to athletic scholarships: Getting money without being taken for a (full) ride. c 2000 (Dion Wheeler).
Div III schools CANNOT offer athletic scholarships, so they write up a pretty nice package. The advantage is, that if you diecide not to play later on, they can't really take it away from you, since it was never based on playing.
Title IX has destroyed the smaller Men's sports- too bad, as it was supposed to INCREASE opportunity, and this will never get back in front of Congress to fix as it is not a priority. But fine schools like St.Louis-Washington, Brandeis (team name- "The Judges") and University of Chicago offer tennis AND are not too shabby to graduate from.
