It seems like every year a kid from a big program is getting caught accepting money or gifts for being who they are on the football field. UNC's football roster was poached, USC was placed on sanctions, and recently the Ohio State Buckeyes were put into a tough spot. Universities make millions off of the talent level of these players. Some football programs actually support other sport programs at their respective schools. UConn's men basketball team is a cash cow. Coaches have mansions just about. I've seen Mack Brown's (Texas HC) 'mansion' before. I'm surprised he doesn't have a moat! Everyone is making money but the kids. Yeah the university gives the kids a full ride but some of the most talented kids are dirt poor. Keeping up with football and school (even though I doubt Proper Handwashing Techniques 101 is hard) it leaves them little time for a job to go get their 'wants' in life. Now I'm not saying pay these kids millions of dollars but $1200 a month on top of their scholarship shouldn't be much to ask for. Am I wrong for thinking these kids should get a piece of the pie? Or would this have kids only complicate the problem? Thoughts?
