Schwartz: Just Pay The Kids! NCAA Should Compensate ‘Student-Athletes’

These kids are not asking for a million dollars. They just need a few bucks here and there to help make ends meet. The colleges make millions of dollars as a result of these kids walking through the tunnel and onto the fields or courts.

Schwartz: How Do You Fix The Pro Bowl? Make It A Flag-Football Game
