But hey, this is what happens when you suck their dick their entire lives and hero worship 16 year olds.
They don't care if they ruin college athletics forever, as long as they get that money.
Yup, welfare has already made pretty much every kid feel entitled like everyone owes them what they want in life... Then athletic programs come in and assure these kids of how great they are and how happy they'll be made if they sign up. Thousands of fans follow them on Twitter and treat them like celebrities, following their every move looking for any indication as to where they might commit. Coaches try to cater to their needs and demands and promise them the world.
IMO NCAA should at least allow them to be compensated by sponsors or make money off of their autographs. If Nike wants to give a kid $100,000 to advertise a new product, why should the NCAA step in and say they can't? If some local car dealership wants to offer a Kenny Powers type deal to some second stringers, why would the NCAA stop that? There are easier ways for players to get cash without all of this BS.
