In what other business environment do the employees losing money hand over fist get paid the same as the ones bringing in tens of millions? Only in college sports.
Do you really think the athletes are worse off, though? Think of the free education (yeah, I know), the exposure, the chance to be BMOC, etc. The other model is minor league baseball. Do you really think the guys down in single A making $10k/year are living a better life than the PG at Kansas?
