The responses to this. Free healthcare for life for college athletes, are you kidding me. Goodness people, think before you speak.
Well they are earning more than the average American then if you want to play semantics. Average income, what, $45,000. Some of these guys are getting $100,000 a year worth of education, room and board, apparel, medical attention, marketing etc.
Divide it out by the roster number and the players not making them any money and it's not as much as you and the outspoken athletes think. It's been mentioned before that only 10-15 programs make money, add in other sports, men's and women's, and there are losses.
