I don't think it'd be possible to remove sports from American colleges - it's the closest thing the NFL has to a developmental league. Also I believe it's where most Olympic athletes go to train and receive coaching.

Well all that, but more importantly, it makes a shit ton of money for the top schools. No way they'll agree to get rid of it.
