    This is an idea that I have heard many people toss about over the years. College players bring in an enormous amount of revenue to their schools, and many say that they should be rewarded for their efforts. But technically, aren't the majority already rewarded in their form of scholarships? Those that walk on are usually rewarded with a scholarship if they do well. I would think that a free college education would be benefit enough. What does everyone else think?

    I'm against paying college athletes for playing sports, but, I could see myself being convinced to go the other way by a good argument.

    Sports bring in tons of revenues to the schools, plus it helps those that normally would not get a college education receive one. That alone could be worth $20,000-$40,000 for some.
