Most of the students at Tanglewood came from Indiana University. Thousands of students graduate from Indiana majoring in clarinet, violin or voice, to name a few disciplines, every year. Yes, they do know how to read, but they can't balance a checkbook or operate a computer any better than the average athlete.
McDermott, Dan. "If a Student Can Major in Piano, Why Can' t a Player Major in Passing?" NY Times 4 December 2005.
Wow, what do you know, I go to Indiana University!

You seem to believe that university orchestras charge for concerts. We at Indiana, land of the balanced check book, do not. Students and the general public attend free of charge.
I see bacchanalian refuse on my way to play Bach.
All students at Indiana, however, are charged a $30 dollar athletics fee to support athletic activity that is associated with reckless alcohol consumption. (I would know. I see the bacchanalian refuse on my way to play Bach.)
Meanwhile, a gift of $40 million dollars is given to the Music School at said institution.
Football is brutal and violent associated with what you call, "pain, injury and effort." That's great. I call it destructive, superficial, fleeting.
Music, however, I would define as "constructive, spiritual, lasting."
People benefit from a lifetime of involvement with Music. Perhaps that's why there's a School.
A lifetime of participation with football would be a short, painful lifetime indeed. To answer the question posed in the title of your article, perhaps that's why there's no Football School and no passing major.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go balance my checkbook.
Oh wait, I already did.
