Pay to Play By Wesley McCrorey

College athletes, especially those in basketball and football have recently protested on TV, asking for their schools to pay them for their services on the team

Some schools, such as UNC of Chapel Hill, have been found guilty of illegally paying their athletes and breaking school rules by adjusting grades

The money the school receives each year from advertisement and other funds is placed into specific places in the school to keep it running, there is not enough money to pay every athlete a fair amount while completing the necessary payments the school needs to pay

There is reason to believe that student athletes won't make the smartest decisions with their money if given it. This will, in turn, look like a waste of money for the university

Student athletes already receive benefits from their schools and allowing them to have more money will result in them spending more and running out of it
