A farm system for the NFL could be a great thing — especially if it's used to knock the NCAA down a few pegs.
Steven LaPlante's insight:

The authour talks about "as it stands now, the NCAA basically has a monopoly on a player’s path to the NFL. The only choice for a high school football player who wants to realize his dream of making the pros is to go through the college ranks. The NCAA knows this, and takes full advantage of it".  He also states "the NCAA is trying to sell the idea that if players are compensated beyond scholarships, it will ruin collegiate sports as we know it, which is just ridiculous." Doing this would mean they dont have to pay student-athletes, which means the NCAA will make more money in the end.

Yet an argument can be made that NCAA student-athletes should be paid for the revenue they aid in bringing to the university.
Steven LaPlante's insight:

The article talks about how "athletes see their rewards in many manners other than a paper check".  In many cases they are seen as celebrities on campus.  They also recive a lot of athletic gear that they can only get from being on the team.  Also the biggest payment athletes should get is their education.

This is my third year at Tech, and I've had the honor of representing this great institute as a student athlete with a scholarship.
Steven LaPlante's insight:

This is the thoughts of a student-athlete who swims at Virginia Tech.  He firmly states his opioion on how universities should not pay athletes.  A scholarship should be the only form of pay they recieve just because its for education.  He says he is happy with not being payed and is glad the NCAA doesnt pay athletes.

So wouldn't that money mean the end of any pretense of athletes being students?
Steven LaPlante's insight:

This article talks about the controversy about using college athletes names and images for promotional purposes.  Some cases even for the university that they go to.  The answer the author thinks would solve this problem is escrow accounts for the athletes.

Let's say you took 5 percent of that number and divide it across every sport at UK.
Steven LaPlante's insight:

"College athletes are privileged. They have what many of their peers have long desired from a young age: athleticism, respect and notoriety". The reason that college athletes are concerned with getting payed is because they see how much money is made from their sport and they wonder where all that money is going.  This article also brings up the important fact that some college athletes come from very poor backgrounds and need money to live off of.

If student athletes shouldn't get paid, then the fairest thing to do would be to take the money out of athletics all together.
