For years now I have had countless arguments with men and women who are NOT athletes on the subject of college players getting financially compensated for their talents; like most entertainers and craftsmen. While watching Outside the Lines this Sunday I am even more convinced of this:
If the NCAA and the college athletic programs are going to function as a business they should do what businessmen do to keep their business in business: PAY THEIR EMPLOYEES - not with some worthless degree either.
Have you read the stats on how much your degree is worth? Pathetic...

“John Calipari inherited a Kentucky basketball roster from Billy Gillispie. Having recruited a handful of players, including freshman John Wall, Calipari needed roster room. A half dozen players from Gillispie's tenure say they were encouraged to leave. "Outside the Lines" tracked down four of those players, who said Calipari told them they were unlikely to get much playing time. Kentucky officials say Calipari just wanted players who fit his style. Tom Farrey reports Sunday on "Outside the Lines."

*There is a white college quarterback who has filed a lawsuit against the NCAA for using his likeness in a video game.
Good for him!
*These black athletes need to support the HBCU's by going to the HBCU's. I bet my last dollar that if over 45%of these black jocks start going to HBCU's a new process will take place.
