College Football Players Deserve a Share of the Spoils?

The National Football League announced on Sunday that a record 98 college-football underclassmen, including Texas A&M's Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel, are making themselves eligible for the NFL draft in May. Why the rush to quit college ball? Because the sooner players get to the NFL and sign the relatively modest rookie contract required by the league's collective-bargaining agreement, the sooner the athletes get to a second, much more lucrative contract.

I believe that college football players should be payed because it should be like the NFL. The reason why college football players should be payed is because maybe they need money for college. For example, if they get a loan so they can go to college, they could get payed for playing and then later on they could pay off the loan. Another reason why college football players should be payed is because success in college sports is also believed to improve the application rates and caliber of admitted students at certain universities. These are some reasons why college football players should be payed.
