So you didn’t watch the Super Bowl. Maybe football isn’t your thing, or you had better things to do, or you were protesting certain players who were accused of certain crimes. I don’t know why you didn’t watch; I’m not here to judge. Luckily for you, dear football-phobe, I did watch The Big Game.
The NCAA, the college athletic regulatory association, estimates annual revenue from college athletics at $10.6 billion dollars. The athletes driving these profits do not receive compensation for their labor. Instead, they are provided a free education along with a stipend for room and board. Many people seem to think this is enough. It’s not.
