    Certainly, but if it's an elite player and you think the team will do anything other than sit them for more than half, you're crazy.

    You also have to look at the age group. Most kids that age think they're invincible, regardless of academic/athletic standing.

    saying that players get a $30,000 a year education for free as their payment for services is a moot point because education shouldn't cost nearly that much to begin with.
    2 people high five this.

    Here's an easy solution to keep this from continuing; encourage the certain bunch of players on each team that don't want to make the most of their scholarships to simply bypass college all together and enter the CFL. They'll get the experience needed to get to the NFL, and they'll get paid.

    To keep this from continuing? The players are not the problem!

    It is the greedy NCAA and every major university in the country!

    They are running a muliti million dollar sports league under a false label of amateurism.

    You know why they don't want to pay the players?
    To keep college football the pristine amateur model that it isn't?
    No! They just don't split up the pie.

    It is nothing but GREED.

    These players provide a service to the university and are not reimbursed for it.

    Solution

    Let players accept a scholarship or sign a yearly contract with a paid salary. Players getting a salary will be responsible for paying for school on their own with scholarships, loans ect.

    Open up players to get endorsement deals and at least let them be able to sell their OWN signature.

    Once again, how will you regulate this? Do you honestly think this will get rid of the boosters who pay players "under the table?"

    I'd let each university set their salary levels. Creates competition. Believe it or not everything doesn't require regulation. Markets can regulate themselves.

    My goal isn't to get rid of boosters and benefits. I don't blame the players for taking everything they can get. I do think it could help.

    I want to see the current crooked system we have brought to an end.

    The boosters are not the bad guys. The universities, conferences and NCAA are.

    The players deserve to be compensated fairly.

    I see... I'm not going to argue with you. Your moral compass is all screwed up.
