It's incredible to me how this argument seems to devolve into people crying about how much they paid for their education, therefore athletes should be satisfied to get theirs for free, ignoring that the athletes have value to the college.
You do not. If you did, academically or athletically, you'd have a scholarship. Your value to the university is your tuition.
You seem to be ignoring the value of the scholarship?
It goes both ways...
