I expect much of blackdom to take advantage of this type of scam. Appears obama is a prime example of how non-athletes can be dumber than dingle berries and still 'get' a degree. Note that I did not use 'earn'.

Free room, board, education, et al., when most are are scholastically undeserving of such merits.

And now they're crying to be "paid"?

Unreal.

"Elected" does not encompass a flip of 10 million votes.
This does:
SEQUOIA VOTING SYSTEMS

DIEBOLD, INC.

UNISYN VOTING SOLUTIONS

VOTING MACHINES

ADVANCED VOTING SOLUTIONS INC

TEXAS VOTING SYSTEMS INC

SEQUOIA VOTING SYSTEMS

Yep, the entitlement mentality reigns...but these guys don't recognize the full value of the scholarships they've been granted.

scholarships aren't treated as taxable income...perhaps they should be...

Just wondering...who pays the bill for all of that money flowing into NCAA athletic directors' offices?

Where does all of that cash originate?

At least send these kids a preview of their potential tax bill...should they pursue this route.

Tickets, "donors", media rights

The college sports operation isn't the moneymaker it's thought to be, our friend Title IX ensures that.

Can one put a price on the public exposure afforded these college athletes by the NCAA? Particularly those whose end goal is to abandon college in favor of professional prospects?

If players are paid, the tax exempt status of the athletics department should be revoked.

The NCAA had 872 million in 2012 revenue

http://collegebasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/20...

"Profit" was 71 million, we divide that by the number of players, it's chump change.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-01-30/nfl-...

The NFL had 5 Billion in TV revenue alone.

College sports is just not much of a moneymaker. Even paying players at ROTC cadet levels would either bankrupt most programs, or spike tuition even higher.

He said he didn't want his son to play football.

Better to be out committing crime instead.
