NCAA wasn't happy with that. Now they want to "pay the 5 star" advertising/marketing money, which is good for the top 5% of players. What about the grunt DL who no one knows but Momma and the Front office of the Broncos? How does he make $$$$.
Bad idea paying athletes. They get Scholarship, room and board that the regular kids don't get. They take easy classes to stay eligible and after 2-3 years the top players are off to the NFL, NBA, MLB, Europe or Asia to play ball... yea tough life if you can handle it.
