We have debated this topic in small doses in other threads... but I wanted us discuss this in detail with this new study being done.

Report: Top college athletes worth 6 figures - NCAA Football - SI.com

Should college players get paid? Should they get what they are worth?

My position is that college players should NOT be paid outright by the universities. I think they should get a stipend though since they cannot work...

They get free tuition, room and board and a bunch of other perks. (groupies too)

Oh, and if they are good and attending one of the big football powerhouses they are probably already getting stipends from the boosters.
