If you worked at a place that had a very small number of employees (football/basketball) who were responsible for 90% of the money generated by the entire company (athletic department), while a majority of the employees (all other athletics) lost the company money, wouldn't you think that the guys generating the revenue should be getting some raises and the guys not making the company any money would be sent packing?
Last I looked, students weren't considered employees. Actually, if push came to shove, I suppose you could consider college football and basketball a form of unpaid internship, allowing athletes to gain experience before starting their pro careers.
