Should College Athletes Be Paid?
Transcript of Should College Athletes Be Paid?
After winning three National Championships, University of Alabama football head coach Nick Saban was guaranteed $6,900,000 for 2014.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association
Founded in 1906.
The NCAA is the administrative power of intercollegiate athletics. It provides and enforces rules for the eligibility of student athletes.
Rules of the NCAA prohibit taking pay in any form for participation in sports.
NCAA rules state that student athletes are not allowed to receive payment for use of their likeness.
NCAA Revenue Surplus
Why Should They Be Paid?
The income from games, specifically in tournaments such as "March Madness", is more than $1 billion.
College athletics are as much of a business as professional athletics, although the money goes to coaches, athletic directors, conference commissioners, and media executives.
The NCAA makes $6 billion annually.
A study found that Johnny Manziel was worth about $37 million of media exposure for Texas A&M.
After Manziel won the Heisman Trophy, the Texas A&M bookstore sold out of 2,500 No. 2 replica jerseys. None of the revenue went to Manziel.
College athletes are not getting more than scholarship grants which often are not enough to cover all necessary costs.
Could defer athletes from turning professional early; more incentive to complete their degrees.
Athletes are the ones playing the sport and putting their bodies on the line for games that result in paychecks for the college, sponsers, promoters, and the NCAA.
