I dont believe any player in any college sports should get paid..they get a free scholarship!! My wife had to pay 40 grand while other ppl pay alot more on student loans
I had a lot more than 40k in student loans and I still want the players to be paid. Just because colleges overcharges regular students doesn't mean that players that provide a ton of monetary value above the value of their education shouldn't be duly compensated.
I think of it this way, just because I got screwed doesn't mean that college athletes also should get screwed.
Simple solution is just pay them/give them a contract then let them pay for there own tuition. Based on contract a college can negotiate rights like an NBA team.
I like this idea. I would want the universities to provide low interest interest loans for any player that negotiates a contract below the amount of full tuition, or just have a minimum contract of the cost of tuition.
