"OK, if Tom Cruise starred in a $100 million blockbuster, could I pay him with a scholarship? He'd say, Yes, you paid me but that wasn't fair compensation," Watkins says. "That's the problem with collegiate sports: scholarships are not fair compensation. Here at Syracuse, where I teach, we make more money from one nationally-televised game than what it costs to pay tuition for every single player on basketball team. That's in one game. So that whole notion is just archaic."
