Every year when the NCAA Tournament rolls along, it re-raises the debate of whether college student-athletes should get paid or not.
Those in favor of the status quo say scholarships are compensation enough for these student-athletes and that playing college sports is a privilege. Others disagree, saying the schools are profiting off their talent — in some cases making millions — and that student-athletes should receive a portion of the funds.
