Should College Athletes Get Paid?

College athletes getting paid has been a debate for many on-going years. Many people think they should get paid and others don’t. NCAA has very strict rules about athletes getting money offered or given to them. The pros are where every athlete dreams of going due to the experience and money. But if you get paid in college, will athletes not try as hard since they’d be already successful getting paid? Would you be able to get sponsorships at early adult years? This topic could come up a lot more during these Covid-19 times and up and coming years.

 

There are tons of pros and cons to both sides. For example, in the NFL draft only 1% of college athletes get drafted and signed in the pros. Do you think this is fair? But also, college athletics is a gift and pros are a job. It’s always a very hot topic and people can provide explanation for both sides of the argument.
