    It should be limited to football and basketball. The two revenue generating sports already subsidize the entirety of the other sports.

    Why does someone on full athletic scholarship need a stipend?

  • jmcdow2792 Jan 22, 2014

    I don't know the rules. I do know that scholarship athletes are not allowed to have part time jobs. What about non-scholarship athletes. If they aren't allowed to have jobs, then they should also be included in the stipends.

    I'm not sure need has anything to do with it. Johnny Manziel didn't need the money, but he would have gotten it anyway. Grant Hill didn't need it, but I suspect he'd have gotten it as well. This is going to be market driven, aided by public perception that this will somehow let athletes in the revenue sports share the bounty they create.

    Well stated! Athletes are NOT getting the education promised, yet are making millions (or is it gazillions) for their respective colleges. Can't believe this has gone on as long as it has. In the end, it will NOT destroy college athletics as the doomsdayers would have you believe. You will see.....

    How about for food, shelter, transportation, and clothing? Just think about the 6'6", 300+ lbs lineman from a poor family who is playing for a wealthy D1 school. Just the clothes alone for such a person is expensive.

    I believe food, housing and education are all paid for with a scholly, but the "extras" certainly aren't. And like you said, clothing is expensive, and if the guy wants to buy a pizza, he may not have the money to even that. Some can't afford to buy the jersey with their number on it, while the schools profits from the sale.

    Bad Idea. It goes from being athletes to an employee employer relationship. Schools with the most money will get the best athletes because they can pay more for them. College football attendance is already falling nationwide. Add this in and it will fall even more. I know donors at other universities that said if this goes through they will not donate another cent. Keep in mind that if you pay the football and basketball players that you have to pay the non revenue players the same amount on the Cross Country or Field Hockey Teams because of Title IX. If this happens then you can bet that cross country, diving, swimming, field Hockey, water polo, volleyball, etc... will be cut from Athletic Departments nationwide. It will end many non-revenue sports because of the giant increase to the athletic budget costs. What is the biggest cost to Athletic departments and companies alike. Employees. You will be adding a lot of employees if this happens.

    Schools with the most money already get the best athletes. Schools with the most money build the best facilities and pay coaches exorbitant salaries. Pay the players. If not, then pay coaches the salaries that a Professor makes.

    One reason attendance is falling is that the economic model is unsustainable

    By the way, I believe in Title IX and the other men's non-revenue sports. However, men's basketball and football should not be paying for it as it does now.

    There is nothing about Title IX that is equal or done based on merit. We do it because we act affirmatively on behalf of women so that they may compete...strictly amongst themselves. If this what the people want, then let the taxpayers pay for it exclusively. If that were the case, then all of Title IX would basically be intramural sports.
