Paying College Athletes:

Paying college athletes is a short-sighted idea, selfishly and foolishly focused on revenue instead of academics.
I mean, where are we going with this?
Where students attend the collegiate football camp of their choice, then choose from a voluntary list of extracurricular academic activities for fun?
College football should be re-assigned to a rational place on America’s priority list.
And if you were going to pay students, wouldn’t it make more sense to start with those who excel at math and science, who can actually help contribute to solving the multitude of issues facing our nation and planet.
At some point, American society must shift its primary focus of admiration from those who excel at sports and celebrity, to those who excel at education and intelligence.
