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.


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

I thought he tore all the ligaments (4) in his knee, broke his femur and patella

Did he jump off a 5 story building?

He had ligament damage but apparently nothing was torn and it's a dislocation of the knee.

The way his leg looked, it's a borderline miracle that nothing was torn if that's accurate.

I was watching the game and nearly crapped my pants when I saw the hit. I thought for a second there they might have to amputate the leg on the field if he didn't have insurance.

He wasn't .. that rumor was started during halftime of the bama game one of the announcers said "it might be" then people took it as fact.
