Again, simply because so many would love to have their education be free doesn't mean a thing to me. These kids are employees for a company whether the company or you want to admit it or not. And they are bringing in millions and millions of dollars every single year for chump change. If you and 11 of your employees at your job were bringing in tens of millions of dollars a year for your company, would you settle for the kind of money these kids get in benefits? Of course you wouldn't. While all of the kids playing college basketball and football aren't bringing in that kind of money, some of them are. And they should be fairly compensated for it. Right now, the kids at big time programs aren't getting anything remotely close to what they are worth to their schools.
Who gives a hot damn? That's how the world works.
