    If schools are required to pay players, there is not a snowballs chance in hell that they will increase their athletic budgets to do it. This mean that either other sports at these schools will need to shut down, or for the schools with profitable athletic departments they will reduce what they pay back into the school, so every kid's tuition will increase.

    Everyone says "they" are getting rich off the poor kids, few stop to ask who "They" are, which is not for profit, mostly publicly funded universities.

    Players should be able to use their name to get some money, but paying them directly beyond the very valuable scholarships they already get is a mistake.

      "They" would include coaches that make millions per season, and also schools that have better facilities than NFL teams, along with private jets. Now you are right, not every program is extravagant like that, and there are a lot more players on community college teams practicing in mud, than multi million dollar college programs, but their are a lot of people and schools getting extravagantly rich off of college athletics, as opposed to putting that money back into the school to decrease tuitions for all students.

        Zion would be foolish to play another game for Duke. He's proven he's the best player in the world not currently playing in the NBA (and better than most currently playing in the NBA). The NFL has a ridiculous own-fart-smelling opinion of itself and football as a gift from the gods that must be honoured at all costs and a guy sitting out could theoretically hurt his draft standing as not being a "team player", what in the hell does Zion have to gain? He's risking LITERALLY a billion+ dollars in potential earnings, between sponsorships and salary.
