Only a select few athletes actually have next level skills, so how does the NCAA decide the pay scale? For every one amazing athlete like Watkins there are 30 others who are lucky enough to get a full ride and all the benefits. Too slippery of a slope IMO to pay them, you pay one and you should pay them all.

if a very small if the NCAA would ever allow then Every Student Athlete would have to be paid or the Courts will be over-loaded
NCAA can not control the players getting 100$ hand shakes now


Re:And small schools who don't have the budget to pay anyone***

Not only that, but once you open that door, then the top athletes would want to be paid more. Then you would have to create a pay scale based on how good and valuable you are, then eventually you would need a salary cap, and finally you are now a professional football league. The whole thing is just ridiculous. If they don't want to play football and go to school for free, then don't. Just quit and do something else.


Taxes!

Let them get paid like golfers or tennis players who start the year out with -0- in earnings and are responsible for their own expenses, travel, instructors, meals, rental cars....

They need to keep pie hold shut, play, study and get a degree!

Thus ends my sermon!

On any given FBS team, there is probably no more than 1-5 players that are likely to play in the NFL. The other 80 or so scholarship players are getting well-paid via their scholarships and are happy to have them. Same for the at most 1 or 2 guys on any given NCAA basketball team. The other 12 guys on scholarship might not want to upset the boat. That scholarship may have been a lifelong dream.

When you enter the realm of pay-for-play, I think the student-athletes will be upset to learn how much of their "earnings" will be recaptured. Ok, we'll pay you $200K/year to play for Stanford. As an out-of-state student, you'll owe $85K tuition. Books will be $1000 per semester. Room & board? $3500 per semester. Health insurance, $8K. Oh, and that income is 100% taxable, so let's subtract FICA and federal withholdings. Oh, and you'll have to pay taxes in each state in which we play a game (them's the rules for "professional athletes") .

Players claim they are being locked out of a "job"

B.S.

The NCAA does not prohibit players from entering the NBA or NFL drafts. The NBA and the NFL have set age limits that keep a particular age group (too old for high-school, too young for NBA/NFL) from plying their labor there.

There are literally hundreds of semi-pro football teams these players can play for rather than go the college route. I'm not sure about the basketball leagues. It is probably harder to catch an NFL or NBA scout's eye. But there's nothing forcing you to play in the NCAA.

Anyone who wants to form a league that would hire these players blocked out of the NBA & NFL is free to do so, so there is no way the NCAA is forcing anyone to play for the offered scholarship + perks. The NCAA is not limiting anyone's marketability. For that matter, neither in the NFL or NBA. Don't like the rules of the NCAA or the NFL & NBA, then you are free to build a league with different rules.

I agree with everything but the marketability part....

Players should be able to make money off their own name. If you suck then, then you just get the basic benefits but if you're an all star then you should be able to make money off jerseys, posters, signatures, etc.

then what's to stop boosters/fans from just paying the rest of the players 50,000 for their jersey? boosters could just use that as a way to get around paying all the football/basketball players.


you forgot

retirement. State employees pay 7.5% (non-taxable income)of gross.
