I've heard that's the case for the most part

outside the U.S. I used to worked frequently with people in EMEA by conference call and our college sports insanity always seemed very odd to them. Apparently they don't do that over there at all. The only sports played by college kids over there are intramurals. The major and minor league sports leagues don't have any affiliation with the universities.
