    A full athletic scholarship at a major university is worth upwards of $80,000.00. How many 18-22 year-olds do you know that have a part-time, seasonal job that pays that much?

    No I do not, especially because they will raise ticket prices. College football is such a money grab!

    I don't think there should even BE a college football system. Most don't want to go to class, there should be a minor league where players can train and compete and be paid.

    If they want to go to school, use that money to go to school, too. But, don't put up a farse by making professional athletes take classes to earn the right to play sports before they make it to the big leagues.

    They are paid, that is what their scholarships are. Schools that make enough then use it to fund other programs as well. However a lot of schools aren't making millions on Football like Alabama and Clemson and USC do. I mean I honestly don't care if they get paid money as well. However if they ARE paid you can expect a lot more schools to start shutting down their football programs because they don't make enough money.

    No.

    Small, private colleges and universities will not have enough money to sponsor football and fund their players.
