should student athletes be paid?
I think so, they are just being exploited. college scholarships big deal!! come on we all know why they play college ball not for the education for alot of them its for chance at the big leagues. and colleges make tons of money off these kids.
Here's just one more coal to the Ohio State fire.http://www.freep.com/article/20110607/SPORTS08/110607063/Report-Terrelle-Pryor-made-thousands-autographs
ESPN is reporting that former Buckeyes quarterback Terrelle Pryor made thousands of dollars signing memorabilia in 2009 and 2010, according to a former friend.
The friend, who is anonymous in the story, said Pryor was paid $500 to $1,000 each time he signed mini helmets and other items for Dennis Talbott, a Columbus businessman who's denying the claim.
The friend also said the quarterback received thousands of dollars worth of free food at Columbus restaurants and stores. Pryor's lawyer, Larry James, denied the claims made by the friend.
Pryor, through his lawyer, announced today that he is forgoing his senior season at Ohio State, for which he was suspended the first five games of after the NCAA learned he and four other teammates took improper benefits from a tattoo parlor owner.
