ACC, ACC, ACC!
College football players are paid with free education and free room and board.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Only in the south, where dolla dolla bills y'all trumps an education.
That's not how the majority are raised to think
It's still not enough in some people's eyes.....smh

Only in the South is football played well enough to be paid for!
I've somewhat considered that perspective, then I think about all the kids/young adults who bust their ass for academic acceptance to universities and have up to and exceeding 6 figures in loans to pay back when they finish.
Then I think about a kid who has all of that paid for and allegedly can't afford a pizza and I think it's a family problem. Where is the money going that the father, mother, or both spent on getting the kid to 18?
The south has always been a little more progressive than the rest of the country.
Don't see a problem with giving players 150 or so a month so Quantavious can buy a new pair of Jordans and some McDonalds.
Should the rest of the athletes on campus get 150 also?

Universities don't have to pay the players. Open up too many other legal issues. You can simply allow players to market themselves, and turn profits as they can. Let them work if they want. Every 5 star that USC targets gets to be in movies for example.

This is fake btw.
It should go by how much money each sport brings in. For example, last yr UF Football brought in over $100 million. Soccer, Baseball, Tennis etc dont bring in that kind of money. So they shouldn't get paid the same, but they all should get a slice of the pie. Giving college football players $500/month wouldn't be a huge deal, and it would help them out tremendously.They dont have time for a job to make money. Their job is going to school and playing football, and doing both at a high level
