    Question Pay college athletes?

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nca...u?ocid=BHEA000

    Tim Tebow says no, but the California legislature says yes, & the bill is on the governor's desk waiting for a signature.

    I say yes. The college athletes I taught at Univ. of Tennessee were mostly broke, & were mostly not going on to the pros.

    So does the left tackle make as much as a running back or safety in mens football? If so what do u pay divers on the swim team compared to the leading scorer on your national champ basketball team? Since the mens basketball and football teams generate the most income do those players make substantially more? This is a mess in the making.

    Most college students are broke and the vast majority aren't going to the pros.What should be changed is the 1 year rule.If a kid is physically developed enough with a skill set that allows him or her to compete with older players than allow them to compete and earn a living.

    Please read the article. College athletes would not get salaries. They would get the right to have endorsement deals w/ businesses.
