I believe we should pay them because some are in debt

College athletes should not get paid as much as they do. Yes, I'm sure some are in debt. What student isn't? The problem is that athletes are idolized like gods, but the people who actually strive to learn and change the world are made fun and frowned upon. Where is the logic in this? If someone had to be paid for something college-related, it should be the students that are really trying to make a difference and not just get rich.

Since college sports commitments take up time that normally could be used to work at a job, they should get paid at least a wage where they can feed and house themselves.
