“College athletes shouldn't be paid. They're already getting a free education.”
There's no doubt that the NCAA profits off of the free labor from its major football and basketball players. They sell their jerseys, video games use their likeness and, for whatever reason, they're lambasted if they get caught with an expensive watch. SMH. It's time to put this debate to rest. We should all get behind a reasonable figure, so these kids can get something to eat once in a while. It just doesn't make sense for coaches and top university executives to ink multi-million dollar contracts, while the players get squat.
