But, yes, "paying the players" might not be the "answer" to college athletics if we don't even know what the question is. What is it? The one problem that is easy to identify, however, is that college athletes are denied the rights that everyone else in the country have concerning their incomes and this can be solved without damaging the schools and/or their sports programs.
I hate to hijack, because this is probably another thread topic, but the NCAA is so badly broken I think it should just be completely abolished. And I love college sports, but the level of "cheating" and plain unethical behavior that has gone on since the very formation of the NCAA puts organized crime to shame.
