This is basically what happens when college athletes read (or more likely, watch) the press. Suddenly, their team is unstoppable and doesn’t need to raise a sweat preparing for the next opponent. Suddenly, three quarters of the team will be “playing at the next level”. Suddenly, they are each worth 5 times the salary of a professor; none of them are marginal bench-warmers, and none of their teams are bottom-feeders that actually lose money for their university, so that “revenue sharing” would mean that, far from being paid, they each owe the university thousands of dollars. Suddenly, they are no longer marginal students who barely pass even with all the benefits of tutors and grade inflation, they are savants whose wisdom society must hear and obey.
