Whether or not college athletes should be paid has been discussed for quite some time, and there has never been a solid defining answer. Some say yes, because they provide a great service, and they cannot really get a job while going to school and playing and practicing. Others say no, that it should be a part of their school life, just as it is for high school athletes. Still others differ on the amounts they should be paid. This is one of those things, like ‘why did the chicken cross the road’, that will never be solved!
