#11 Michigan vs. #17 Florida - 9/2/17

Recommended Posts

A number of these great college players (including at Michigan) come from very poor backgrounds and they don't actually have time to work a part or full time job to pay for expenses and play a sport like football. And their parents aren't capable of of paying their expenses either. So... do the math.

I'm pro giving them a stipend and ending the charade. But whatever.

This is still something that still doesn't quite register with me. It doesn't bother me that the NCAA or the schools make money because people are obsessed with watching young adults play sports. 

I don't particularly think anyone is being exploited. 

They do get compensation to some degree. If they decided to give college athletes a bit more walking around money, that's fine.
