The best potentially have a greater incentive to turn pro earlier than they otherwise might. The rest, however, have a greater incentive to exploit fully their college opportunities. The net impact of these two effects on professionalization is ambiguous. Complicating the story, the distinction between the best and the rest frequently is not clear, even to the athletes themselves. It is the perspective that a little more work or a little luck will give someone the "big break," and it is likely that this perspective drives many athletes and contributes to increased professionalization of the collegiate game. 19 In that respect, it may be that colleges and athletes are identical in their tendency to promote professionalization.
