College players are already being paid

...through their scholarship.
...through their opportunity to play at prestigious Universities.
...through their chance to audition for professional sports.

We should be careful to keep and/or reinstate the proper perspective.

Colleges should first be educators in a broad sense. Helping young people become independent contributors to society. The athletic programs are a part of this overall mission. The money involved should and must remain secondary, no matter how large.
