College athletes spend several hours each week to prepare, train, and actually compete in their respective sport. They also have classes, tutoring (if necessary), and study tables that is a part of their schedule as well. Spending all of their time doing these things can be related to having a full-time job. That is what college is all about, right? Didn’t they choose that life?
There are so many pieces that go into whether or not college athletes should be paid or not. Who pays them? How much do you pay them? Does the higher revenue sports get more money? What about the higher profile athletes, do they get paid more than the others? Regardless, if they are getting paid legally, won’t there be that possibility of getting paid illegally anyway? Is there a perfect system for athletes to get paid? All of these questions and more will be answered as we talk about this hot topic.
Our guests, Adam Stacy and Trey Thurston help us dive into all of these aspects! They provide insight in many areas as they were college athletes. During our conversation, I think we may have found a way for this to work. Will you stop those on the “outside” from providing improper benefits? Probably not.
Take some time to listen to us and our guests discuss and question this VERY important topic!
