    With the amount of money they generate for the schools the athletes should be compensated.

    I absolutely hate the University economics of this country.

    These guys turn a 54% "profit", no taxes, endless amounts of grants, subsidies and donations, they pay atheletes nothing but collect billions from network television, ticket sales and merchandise.

    Their "operating cash" is then subsidized by the Federal Government in the form of student loans.

    Could you imagine the melt down people would have if you could get Federal Car Loan to subsidize the auto industry? (I also belive they are responsible for the push for free college as it will let them drive tuition costs to a new level with price gouging).


    Hell yeah, **** Them.

    Coach gets $4m/year and they force kids to go to fund raisers... But oh loardy, guy sells his jersey for $300 and we need a criminal investigation.

    Sorry but I will only support this when the athletics programs pay for EVERYTHING at the school. As long as they are using tax payer resources for anything I will not.

    I played NCAA Football. We were pretty good. I played with 10-12 current NFL players.

    If NCAA athletes received money for playing, it would be a freaking shit show. My vote would be to forever leave it alone as is.

    Fine with me.

    They create revenue for the NCAA and get nothing in terms of money.

    I don't have a problem with a student athlete making endorsement money from his own name and image. Let's face it though, most won't be making much if anything unless they are creme de la creme players. No one gives endorsement money to the third string QB.

    SMU was nailed for pretty much what he is saying. Granted that was a few decades ago but does anyone believe NCAA ball has changed for the better?

    Their scholarships are payment enough imo

    It's their own fault for "earning" a worthless degree

    This is my stance on it. If they get a free ride nope. That’s a big value right there don’t take a worthless degree.

    That was almost 35 years ago.

    No. BUT it would be increasingly more difficult to work the system like that now.

    Collegiate tennis player here:

    NO. Absolutely not. The school gave me free equipment, a free education, and some minor expense money. In return I got a free education, free healthcare, free training, free food, and free tutoring. If an athlete chooses to waste that opportunity by getting a worthless degree it's on them. If you don't think so go ahead and stop complaining about gender studies libs with insurmountable student loan debt.

    There's a big misconception that athletes are all idiots that get worthless degrees without ever doing the actual work. Student athletes at my school had higher graduation rates and a higher GPAs than the general student body. We had to. If we under-performed collegiate rules benched us and we were constantly reminded that. Nobody gave us unearned grades or degrees. Our A.D. was on our asses when our grades slipped and as a result of team study sessions, tutoring, and the constant threat of getting the boot I did better in school when I played vs. when I wasn't. NCAA wide student athletes have higher graduation rates too.

    So no. Take advantage of the incredible opportunity the university gave you or shut the **** up.

    Most Elite athletes don’t have time for any degree.
