Should There Be Stricter Rules About How College Coaches Treat Their Players?
Thesis Statement
Why is this such a controversial topic?
The Individuals or Team Could Win Money
The first reason why I truly feel there should not be stricter rules on this topic is because the team as a whole or sometimes specific individuals could earn money for themselves from scholarships, tournaments, etc.


NBC news states in paragraph 12, “overall revenue jumped to $634.1 million from $528.7 million. Fund-raising increased to $23.5 million from $19.6 million, while a capital campaign targeted to raise $100 million exceeded $132 million”.
the official NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) states on their official website that “The NCAA and member schools together award more than $2.4 billion in athletic scholarships every year to more than 150,000 student-athletes” in paragraph 4.
I personally believe that there should not be stricter rules about how college coaches treat their players.
There should not be stricter rules about how college college coaches because when the team is practicing at their highest level and doing great in their season, they could potentially win money, the team and the individuals will have a plethora of confidence when they are putting time and effort into their days to practice, over the course of a the season, and the players will be healthy if the coaches run them and challenge them so that in the end, they can win against the competition.
There are many examples of coaches crossing the line in terms of how they treat their players. One of the most well-known instances of this issue is Mike Rice, ex-coach of the Rutgers basketball team, from 2010-2012, was caught on camera abusing his players by throwing basketballs at them from a close distance, pushing them around, yelling homophobic comments towards the young men and was finally fired after a three day suspension. Although that case was cruel, it doesn't mean that all coaches do this and there certainly shouldn't be stricter rules if they don't take part in those actions.
Confidence Is Key
Secondly, I determine that there should not be stricter rules about how college coaches treat their players because the team and the individuals will have a plethora of confidence when they are putting time and effort into their days to practice.

Kimberly Halpin, Minnesota State University, says that out of her survey, “bonding with their teammates gave them more confidence explained why: it is more fun (‘fun and confidence as a team go hand in hand’), it provides more support/encouragement/positive reinforcement, ‘it makes/breaks a team,’ they learned they will not be judged for their mistakes, they feel more responsible for their part, more things are accomplished, they felt more comfortable and, less tense, and finally, ‘with a team one can accomplish anything’ (page 9, paragraph 2).
I found that athletes are more aware of their surroundings, and can blossom as a player and a person while in training, and are quickly able to learn something and perform that task, states Sports Psychology.
Players Are in Shape and Healthy
Last, but absolutely not least why I see that there should not be stricter rules against how college coaches treat their players is the fact that over the course of a the season, the players will be healthy if the coaches run them and challenge them to their fullest potential, so that in the end, they can win against the competition.

I researched and found that “If you jog for 60 minutes a day for a week, you'll burn about 4,200 calories, or just over 1 pound of fat--assuming you don't replace it by consuming more fat in your diet during that same week” (Artunian, paragraph 14)
this also led me to finding out that Blair O’ Donovan, a strength and conditioning coach used a GPS to track high school athletes and that led him to conclude that you they ran between 4.02-5.7 miles in a single game. It is basically essential to have a healthy heart and lungs to be able to join in a competitive sport.
Whats on The Other Side of the Coin?
Some may dispute that there should be stricter rules on how college coaches treat their players because the coaches may feel they are entitled to do whatever they want with the players and as an outcome, health related issues may come into view and cause a problem for everyone, but that is wrong. Although “Sports and recreational activities contribute to approximately 21 percent of all traumatic brain injuries among American children” (unknown, paragraph 5) and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital reports that “more than 3.5 million injuries each year, which cause some loss of time of participation, are experienced by the participants” (paragraph 1), if the kids are taught the correct techniques for whatever they may be learning, little to no injuries would happen. Plus, most coaches know the difference between right and wrong, and would never abuse one of their players and the athletes have the opportunity to report suspected abuse or go to www.d2l.org to have a powerful influence on their lives.
What is the point?
Again, there are many reasons to back up my argument but I think that the three most important is that when the team is practicing at their best and doing great in their season, they could potentially get money for their schools and themselves, the players will have more confidence in games and in practices in themselves when the coach is pushing them, and also when coaches work them hard, most often times they will have to do cardiovascular exercise so they will be healthy and in great shape for future games.
