Athletes receive a full scholarship for their participation in a college sport. In his article

There is a huge debate over whether or not student-athletesshouldbepaid as employees of their respective colleges. Personally, I don’t believe players should receive full-time salaries, but Universities and the NCAA shouldbe required to increase the value of the scholarships that they award to student-athletes. By requiring that colleges provide athletes with an additional $2,000 per semester as part of their scholarship you can greatly increase the well-being (welfare) of the students.

Some people believe that they shouldbepaid and others would completely disagree. Even though they technically are being paid, they really are not. The only type of way the athletes would bepaid is through financial aid or if they have a job. Only their education is being paid by the school. Although some people believe that they shouldbepaid, it would not be a good idea at all. So collegeathletesshould not bepaid at all because they are basically being paid to study and play a sport.

Over the past century college athletics have grown more popular than most professional sports. Most of its popularity is due to a large student body in addition to its Alumni, but nonetheless it has surpassed professional sports from its monetary success to its fan support. College athletics are also a very important commodity to Universities around the nation. Next to student's tuition, that's where the majority of the money comes from. No one is more responsible for bringing in that money more than the coach and his/her players. In this notion, one would think that such important people shouldbepaid for a job well done.

Actually, approximately 24% of student athletes are married, and of that 24%, about 62% have children. Of the students without their own spouses or children, many must care for parents and siblings.

The performance of student athletes determines the amount of fan support each school receives. If games are won, fans will support, and revenue will come in.

At some colleges their athletes are a key source of income for the university. This would lead one to believe that the athletes who produce money should get a portion of that money in return. Despite the fact that paying collegeathletes is banned some of them still get paid anyway. The overall good to be gained from paying the collegeathletes could be that they would want to stay in school longer and develop an education rather than going to the pros prematurely. One would think that knowing all of this the athletesshould at least get paid a small amount of the money they bring to the school.

This argument of whether NCAA college student-athletesshouldbepaid for their contribution on the field draws a giant fork in the road. Is it where college football where college athletics is headed?
