Yeah, I've always argued that they should get paid. People want to say they're getting an education like every other student, but the difference is, non-athletes aren't risking their health on a daily basis for that education.

That and major college sport athletes can't just take whatever classes they want anymore. Schedules get conflicted.

Wait what? If athletes get injured, that doesn't mean they can't get an education.

In terms of paying college athletes, I don't care one way or the other, but I would think that argument would be hard to sell.

You're right, but they came to the school to play FOR the school and get an education. So there is more inherent risks associated with their earning of an education compared to a non-athlete. So they can still get an education, but if they suffer a long-term injury because of their obligations associated with earning it, they should be paid for it.

I say this with the premise that most college athletes wouldn't be considered, nor would they consider the schools they attend, if they weren't athletes.

I guess that's just the risk you take with that type of career.

Hate SC.

Not a Lattimore fan.

Hate to see a bright career take such a big hit.

Great news guys. He dislocated his knee. The rehab will be significantly longer than a normal acl. However, he will play ball again per Gamecocksonline.com

    • At first I didn't like the guy but he put his money where his mouth is. Gave a ton to Charity and really backed up his talk of trying to makechange. If he continues on his charitable ways thru out his NFL career I hope he stays in the NFL for years to come.
