The NCAA Makes Billions and Student Athletes Get None of It | The Nation
NAAWP SUPPORTS COMPENSATION for COLLEGE ATHLETES – PRESIDENT OBAMA does NOT!
FACT: Over 99% of all COLLEGE ATHLETES never make it to the PROS; their “GLORY DAYS” are typically restricted to their COLLEGEIATE YEARS! COLLEGE SPORTS generate more MONEY for COLLEGES, COLLEGE COACHES and LEAGUE OFFICIALS than the NFL, NBA and MLB combined!
President Barack Obama says compensation for college athletes would "ruin the sense of college sports."
Obama said in an interview released Saturday that what frustrates him, though, is college
coaches, athletic directors and the NCAA making huge amounts of money while an
athlete is banished for getting a tattoo or free use of a car.
"That's not fair," Obama told The Huffington Post in response to a question about
whether college athletes should be compensated because they are money-makers
for the NCAA, television stations and advertisers.
Compensation would "create a situation where there are bidding wars. How much does a Anthony Davis get paid as opposed to somebody else?" Obama said, referring to the
power forward who played one season at Kentucky before heading to the NBA.
"And that I do think would ruin the sense of college sports," Obama said.
The interview was released Saturday, hours after Obama cheered as his niece's Princeton team remained undefeated by topping Wisconsin-Green Bay in an NCAA Tournament
first-round game played in Maryland.
URBAN MEYERS, LES MILES and NICK SABIN are currently making over $12,000 USD's per day 365-days per year and their RECRUITS are currently making NIL! Sadly, very few of their PLAYERS will ever GRADUATE from OHIO STATE, LSU or the UNIVERSITY of ALABAMA, or make it into the NFL!
