If you argue CFB players should be paid, you have to argue that the 1st string QB gets more $ than 3rd string safety, Fla players > FAU, etc
If college sports is all business, why do schools have two dozen sports that are guaranteed to lose money? Pretty lousy business model.
Not to mention tuition, books, food, tutors, training, exposure, etc. So the Q is not should they be paid, but should they be paid MORE?
