Default 'Should college basketball players be paid?'

I don't know if anyone's been following this CBS Sports poll where they ask nearly 100 college basketball coaches concerning questions most fans wonder. Some of the past were like... regarding: World Wide Wes, underachieving coaches, which of their peers "cheat", AAU relationship, etc...

Anyhow, most of them had been rather predictable, imo. Names you would expect to see have shown up and yes/no questions have leaned the way one would predict. Today's question, however, surprised me a little.

Quote:
The question is: Should college basketball players be paid, and if so, how would you compensate them?
  • YES - 58 percent
  • NO - 42 percent

Now obviously this has been brought up regularly over the past few years. And I'm going to guess this will never happen because how do you separate revenue sports vs. non-revenue. You can't pay the football and basketball players and give nothing to lacrosse, rowing... What about cheerleading or debate? Where does it end? But I thought it was surprising how majority of college basketball coaches believe the players deserve some type of pay, outside of their free schooling.

Here is the link to the previous questions:

I say only pay the players if they sign individual endorsement deals that does not use any college funds. If Sprite wants to give Jabari Parker a deal, let them do it.

All I don't want to see is Universities paying players using funds that should be going to education and academics, especially public universities that's using tax dollars.

It'd be nice if the player could choose to get a deal, but at the same time, has to pay for his own college tuition. Most likely that'd sign a large enough deal where paying college would be possible. That way the university could save a ton of money and re-allocate it back to academics (ideally--I know some programs probably just use it to re-invest into athletics).

But the reality is that players should just be allowed to go to the NBA straight him high school. Watching guys waste 1 year of college is just a waste. It makes a mockery of the entire system.

By who? The school? The NCAA? No. It's not football, basketball players aren't putting athletic departments in the black, ask Kansas. There's not THAT much money in hoops.

But there's absolutely no reason athletes shouldn't be able to make money outside of the university. A kid that goes to Purdue, just an example I'm familiar with, should be able to shoot a local commercial for Mike Raisor Ford and make like a grand. Tell me why he/she shouldn't, I mean it. Because the car dealership owner'll pay him under the table? Yeah, that's not already happening. How do you think 20 year olds with no credit are cruising around in late model Insert Local Dealership Models?

Don't pay them. Let them make money by being good.

what do they need money for tho? they get free housing, food, clothes, and extra money for stuff they need. I agree that the NCAA's restrictions on athletes are bullshit, they should be able to make money off of merch sales, and advertising and stuff, but I see no reason why they should be paid for playing amateur basketball.
