    Congrats Tim you never had to provide for your family while in college. Every athlete has it that easy!

    While he makes a good point overall, off-campus rent being a major expense when it could’ve been free on campus doesn’t help his argument whatsoever.

    He was a fucking moron that provided his own personal status into a serious argument.

    Would Percy Harvin and all the freaks who contributed to those 2 titles as much as he did agree with that, fuck no.

    Still don't know how you appropriately compensate college athletes without destroying the non-revenue sports

    I think they should be paid

    I think most of the arguments surrounding why they should be paid are ridiculous though (ie. the kids can’t live comfortably without it)

    I think the only real solution that makes it work in an equitable fashion is if football and men’s basketball leave the NCAA entirely

    wtf. they're called freshmen dorms for a reason.

    is it a new talking point by the awkward white people to say that athletes should be living in dorms all of their college year?

    I think they at least deserve some kind of stipend and fuck all the athletes in non-revenue sports thinking they deserve it as well.

    They fund your fucking sport, you're not on equal footing with them.

    Most major universities have athlete-only or team-only dorms that are beyond lavish.

    Well, that kind of shoots holes in your “because they deserve it” theory, doesn’t it?

    I guess only underprivileged kids who perform in money sports deserve a stipend.

    The argument begins and ends with “they’re providing incremental value that the university - and not they themselves - are benefiting from”. For that, they deserve fair compensation.

    That’s why they deserve to be paid.

    The rest is all fluff.

    If a sport can't support itself and the University doesn't want to foot the bill, they shouldn't have that sport.

    if someone elects to live off campus, the housing element of their scholarship generally just gets converted into an off-campus housing stipend. So kids should be able to afford living off campus in most college markets based on that stipend

    side note, there's significant research out there suggesting retention and graduation rates are higher on campuses where most kids live on campus. Most elite schools require you to live on campus for at least a couple years and then go through an application process to live off campus in years three/four/five

    Tebow has made more than most athletes alive off his college career. Albeit not until after he left, but still. He didn't have an issue monetizing his college career the second he left. Some kids aren't really in the position to wait.

    They currently get a stipend.

    It’s not enough compared to what value they bring, but they do get one.

    Staying in college rather than going to pro and helping your family is a selfish decision. People like Tebow are privileged enough to be selfish there. Most aren’t.

    For sure.

    The NCAA had over $1b in revenue last year. Billion. With a B.

    Over 80% of it came from football and men's basketball.

    How would an athlete being able to accept money for endorsements change non-revenue sports in any way? It's the easy answer and always has been.

    There’s no other context where you can get a minor to sign a contract, be prevented from representation in negotiating it, and said contract preclude them from any income source. It would be unconscionable as a matter of law.

    They should be able to sign endorsements deals.

    Having the schools pay more than a stipend is a slippery slope.

    Not everyone good at a sport plays it because they love it timmy. Unfortunately for many it’s a means to make ends meet.

    That doesn't really solve the problem. Only a very small % if players would get endorsements and the NCAA/school still take in billions without sharing it with the vast majority of players.

    revenue sharing mechanism (likely through collective bargaining) would be the step after allowing them to earn incomes from other sources

    Tebow is full of shit and that’s a horrible take. Players getting paid doesn’t make me less of an alumnus. It won’t make me careless about UCLA.. Like many have said he is lucky enough to not have needed the money that’s not the case for many players. I like Tebow but fuck him and his high horse.

    This is the type of argument that needs to be made vs the one above about possibly frivolous expenses that can be nitpicked to shreds

    The whole charade is totally inequitable to the players
