Athletes must receive compensation as programs generate billions from the hard work that they are putting in to receive an average of only 7,000 dollars in scholarship money.

Television networks already profit lots of money into college football games from late August to January, which begs the question, should the players get something in return? Should college football players get paid? Some may think that graduating from a four-year university with a degree should be considered way before playing football once a week and treating the college game like some sort of a developmental league for the NFL. Others may take into consideration that all the blood and sweat college football players put into the game should be returned with "funding" in their own pockets. I honestly don't think any college athlete, let alone college football players, should be paid because it will take away the tradition of the college game. The one thing college athletics holds over professional sports is the fact that student-athletes represent their schools, programs, alumni, and student body with a sense of pride and honor every time they go out onto the field or step on the hardwood
