Or that an insurance company is paying a salesman so he has to buy his own computer and phone and pay the company for office space. Makes no sense.
If universities are to play athletes then they should be treated like every other staff member. There are many jobs in which someone works under a company name but rents space. The benefits scholarship college athletes gets are pretty impressive. As I have said in another post, a guy like Braxton Miller is as responsible for OSU selling out as Terelle Pryor, Troy Smith, Woody Hays, Jim Tressel, Eddie George, Archie Griffin, etc are.
