Pay The Athletes

I only see one reasonable answer to the issue of student compensation, pay the athletes, but not all of them. Paying a superstar and the back up offensive linemen the same amount would be ridiculous. But I believe that all athletes should receive compensation, whether it be something as small as free food, that can go a long way. In cases like Shabazz Napier and Johnny Manziel, where they are icons, I believe they should be allowed to have endorsements, and they should get paid a percentage on their own jersey sales. That way hard work still pays off, athletes will never go to bed hungry since the NCAA is providing them with food, and student athletes will stay in college for a longer period of time and still be able to provide for themselves and their family.
