All of a sudden there are stories and commentary on hard news programs, sports programs, newspapers and digital media arguing for paying college athletes. Well paying football and basketball players anyway. Seems colleges and the NCAA make so much money off these players and forbid even the slightests gratuity by the student athletes that it has begun to bother many sports writers.
This is one of those issues which is hard to form a hard and fast decision on because the students do get a full college ride plus room and board, money most average students have to borrow. But I don't doubt the colleges and NCAA are flush with money for themselves.
