    College athletes are already paid. Primarily in the form of scholarships. And many accrue additional privileges as well. I don’t think they should be paid more unless they sign a 4 or 5-year contract that states they will complete their degree, they will remain with the team and they will not transfer or move on to the pro’s until their obligation is completed. And pay is performance based. Then the University/Conference has a bonafide asset.

    Good for the goose, good for the gander.

    Very good point, they are getting offered a 4 year degree for 4 years of service to the team[/quote:19xvd8w7]

    For most players they are getting a 4 year degree for 5 years of service (if they are redshirted, like most)

    College athletes get paid regardless of what the rules say and I am not just talking about scholarships and books. Yes, the NCAA makes MILLIONS off of the bigger names but seeing as how the bigger names get free schooling, cars, “unearned” grades and a chance to go to the NFL after only playing 2 years I’d say they are already being given more than enough [=}=]
