Do college football players deserve to be paid for their on field actions? In 2016, there were 24 college football teams who earned over 100 million dollars in revenue. Texas A&M topped this list with 192.6 million dollars in total revenue. For comparison, the Dallas Cowboys top the NFL with 840 million dollars in revenue, but no other team is within 250 million dollars of them (Patriots are 2nd with 575 million). An NFL team generally pays their players about 168 million dollars for a 53 man roster. This is about 2/5 of an NFL team’s revenue, which if put into college would mean that a college salary cap would be around 40 million dollars for a $100 million dollar per year team. But NFL players should be given a larger cut of their team’s revenue though, mainly because they play 16-20 games per year compared to college players who play between 12-15 games. For the sake of the argument, I’ll assume that 1/3 of all college football revenue should go to a the players. This means that a 100 million dollar college should be able to pay its players about 33 million dollars, which is 314k per player, but players are paid on a talent scale, so a player like Lamar Jackson, who was by far the best player on the Louisville Cardinals, would earn about one million dollars, but a third string middle linebacker would earn about 100 thousand dollars. That linebacker could spend that money on an education at the University of Louisville, which would be equivalent to a scholarship or could save it to buy a house, car or 26 bitcoins. With all that said, should college players be paid for their on field performance, similar to how NFL players are paid but on a smaller scale? #college #football #paid #alabama #texas #tennessee #pennstate #michigan #ohiostate #michiganstate #oklahoma #tcu #oregon #usc #texasam #johnnyfootball #money #florida #georgia #louisville #lamarjackson #lsu #auburn #clemson #fsu #miami #theu #notredame
