An idea about the Pac12er demands

It is true that there is a lot of money generated by college athletics

It is also true that a lot of money is spent on college athletes
Just to name a few...that all cost money, that the athlete is given freely

Full ride tuition
Professional trainers
medical expenses
Room and board
Clothing
Transportation
Tutoring

Donors from the schools pay to keep the athletes going, TV revenue also pays,

Let's keep the current system in place but allow these athletes to make
money on endorsements. And let the schools keep and use the current system's
money generation. This way schools are unaffected and can maintain the whole system

This way it becomes a fair market for the athletes..if they are good enough and in
demand enough they can make more than the school funds them. If they are not
then they get what the scholly entails only.

If you try to distribute it evenly to every athlete at the school then that is
socialism at its core.

Everybody in the country is paid currently by their ability level. That's why surgeons
make more than ditch diggers. And CEO's make more than the mail room employees.

If they under perform, can we "fire" them?

I say keep it the way it is. Teachers and universities need the money more. Paying for their education and then making money is unfair to other students who are having to pay for their education. We come to see the team play, not just one or two athletes. IMO, it'll build division on the team and in the sport as a whole.

Wut? That is LITERALLY the modern NCAA model!

I am fairly sure that Soviet Russia provided the following:
