That's the problem. The players already get (I estimate) around $250000.00 to attend and play for Clemson for 4-5 years. Tuition, room and board, best food money can buy, healthcare, and probably the most expensive benefit... Television coverage to showcase their skills. That last one is totally priceless!!! They get to travel and see the world for free and get the best tutoring money can buy. This doesn't even include the facilities they get to take full advantage of.
As Dabo says, "They can't have it both ways."

But when they can't afford to take their girlfriend out for dinner on an off night, what do you say? ( That is especially true of walk-on players who might not be getting a totally free ride).
Tell the parents to get a second job.
I don't favor paying them, but not all of the student-athletes come from wealthy homes or play revenue sharing sports.
So what do you do?

How can football players not afford to take their girlfriend to dinner when they are getting a couple thousand dollar stipend each semester?

Food, housing, medical, tuition, and more is all paid by the scholarship.

They have almost nothing left to buy but gas.

There is no way gas costs $2500 a semester in Clemson.

There should be some room in there for dates, new clothes, etc.

Hate to break it to you, but "walk-on players who aren't getting a totally free ride," won't be the ones making money from their likeness and signatures.

The players are being given stipends already to help with some of that. How much is enough?
The question is not what do we do?... It should be what should we do?
If the parents can't afford to send their kids to college (even with everything being paid for), then they should simply not send them at all. That's the way life works.
