Can't prove it, but I believe fat cat donors to state college athletic programs are core political contributors as well.

I wonder if a state senator who proposes to make State U less competitive in athletics compared to other limiting athletic scholarships to in-state kids....would be getting many checks from fat cat athletic department donors
No, I won't propose limiting scholarships to all out-of-state players, just non-US citizens. Period.

Example: Memphis hoop is doing pretty well without those crazy tall Euro centers

If EVERYBODY is not allowed more than 2 or 3 international players, this will actually level the play field a bit for those not-so-rich state schools who can't afford that many of these scholarships.

I am pretty certain that there are NOT many "fat-cat donors" who care about their college tennis programs AND wants to keep international players THAT much that will get ****ed off by this - Not even for Memphis, I checked

Football maybe, but we got no Euro football players, Aussie kickers are good but are really not necessities
