College athletes are getting serious benefits and real compensation for what they offer to schools. I'm not going to shed any tears over whether or not they're paid like pros.
I think a lot of companies compensate their employees to the extent of which they are bringing in that others couldn't bring in. That is why McDonalds employees make $7.50 an hour and brain surgeons make whatever it is that they make.
Again, I just can't figure out why college basketball and football can be BILLION dollar industries, but the employees shouldn't be paid because they get an education for free and some free gym time.
