I've always taken a middle ground on this. The idea of flat out paying them I haven't gotten behind, but I'm all for them making money off things like jersey sales, likeness in video games (bring back EA NCAA Football please), autographs, commercials, etc...

NCAA athletes are already pros. Athletic Scholarships.

They deserve to be able to market themselves as they so choose just like anyone else.

I think where I come down on the direct player/college financial relationship is to let the players form a union to offset the practical cartel that is the NCAA. If they can then collectively bargain direct payments in, more power to them.

1. Call his bluff, California.
2. If he isn't bluffing, then you can still do good by hastening the demise of the NCAA.

Just get rid of "amateurism" and or stop treating specifically college football as a professional money making endeavor until it comes to the players. I'm sorry "Student - Athletes"
