This article discusses fifteen different athletes that were paid in college and the consequences that followed. Reggie Bush is the first athlete they mention he was a running back at USC and also a Heisman trophy winner. Bush was forced to relinquish his Heisman trophy and all of the wins during the time period that he played at USC. Another familiar name on the list was Derrick Rose, the former University of Memphis point guard. Not only did it say that Rose got paid to play but he also had a fake SAT score.
A more recent college football player for the University of Auburn, Cam Newton also had allegations that he was paid to play while in college. None of the allegations have been proven true but he did violate other recruiting laws along the way. Another USC athlete O.J. Mayo was also receiving money while in college.
Another familiar name on this list is Johnny Manziel who is actually still in college, these are still only allegations none of them have been proven true. Josh Shelby of the Kansas Jayhawks was benched for half of the season and was forced to repay the money that he has received while in college.
The sad thing about situations like these is that almost all of these players are still playing professionally and the universities where they played are taking the fall out.
This article relates to the book Center at el in chapter 10 standards, ethics, and values.
Fifteen is the number of college athletes in the article that were paid to play in college. The number fifteen is just scratching the surface of the real amount of players who illegally play in college. I do think that the players are a fault because they should know better than to cheat and get paid to go to school. My biggest problem with payers getting paid is the coaches and the university.
The university and the coaches should be held to a higher standard of not cheating. Those athletes should want to play for the university, for the tradition of the school not because they are getting paid.
Center at el (306) states that social conduct is regulated by five factors: tradition, public, opinion, law, morality, and ethics.
Obviously taking money is against the law so that would not be acceptable by the law. Being paid to play is not currently accepted by the public. Tradition shows that schools that do this get suspended. The universities should have higher standards for their athletic programs.
