Actually, there might be something to this. Last summer, Cuban wrote a blog about doing something similar in basketball, i.e. running a minor league basketball team as essentially a feeder to the pros, grabbing players early on and developing their skills before selling their contracts to the big boys. Part of this process would be an attempt to essentially steal the players from the college ranks. Also, in the blog, he discussed how broken the current basketball player development system is in the US, due to both AAU basketball and the ridiculous restrictions of the NCAA (only allowing coaches so much time with players in the off-season, etc). Could it be that he has now turned this model towards football?
