    I’d link the article but for some reason, I can’t find it online, but it’s in the print version to today’s Desnews.

      And yet I still can’t stand her for her 4 year tirade on college athletes not being compensated enough. Free school, free room and board, the best coaching, free food, all with before tax dollars that their family or them would have had to come up with after tax dollars, in a free and open system that they could choose to enter into or not.

      Go somewhere else, go semipro and work yourself up without the free training and resources of a university.

        Trevor Reily is on this same crusade and it drives me crazy.

          As an accountant, I’d like to ask him how much he would have had to pay on his own for schooling, room and board, elite level coaching, food, trainers, weight facility, practice facility, and then add 25% in order to have him or his parents pay for it with after tax dollars….and then spread that across all athletes, even those who never see the field. What they are getting is significant..and if they don’t like it….go do it on your own…go find your own stadium, put together a team, coach them up, market them and get paid, son.

            It seems that people look at the hundreds of millions of dollars being generated by college football and basketball, and then think the athletes deserve a piece of that pie. For some reason, these people fail to realize the athletes are already getting a significant piece of that pie. Over the course of a 5 year college sports career, an athlete at a school like Utah is receiving benefits with a value in the range of 250-500 thousand dollars. 

            For anyone to say that they should get paid on top of that is completely asinine.

              Exactly!  Furthermore, people act like the millions brought in by the athletic department (football) is being fed to some mystic big fat cat.  Very few athletic departments operate in the black.  

              I think the players and people who support paying athletes have this kind of a vision when they think about university finances.

        I have to admit lack of information on this issue. I think this is an issue we all debate when none of us know what is going on. 

        I’d need to know how much is brought in by sport. 

        How much is spent by sport. 

        How much tuition is.

        How much is spent on food, lodging, transportation, etc. 

        How much is used to subsidize other sports. 

        And on and on and on. 

        Then, we could break down how much is spent on each athlete, how much is brought in, how much is left over, what taxes would be, etc. 

        I think if we saw that info, the answer would be a lot clearer.

    I like what Samson Nacua said about bringing his little bro to Utah.

      As long as he’s not punching dudes in the back of the head after bowl games like his oldest brother, I’m cool with it.

    The problem is that football and basketball have to fund all the other programs (maybe with a little help from gymnastics at the U). It’s why the whole argument of how much student athletes make for the university is a huge red herring given the mandates of Title IX.
