Should College Athletes Get Paid

I think its absolutely crazy that they raise that much money for a tournament and the players don't get any of the money. College athletes have to worry about paying for school which can be very expensive,College cost about $10,300 it can cost alot more also. College athletes usually have to get jobs to pay for college,go to school and still go to practice all in one day which is crazy. If athletes get paid just a little amount of money for playing a sport there college life would be a lot easier.

If players get injured playing the sport and have to have surgery there scholarship does not pay for it they have to pay for it and surgeries can cost thousands of dollars and sometimes more. College athletes might have kids and they need money to take care of them which that can be very hard to afford when they can barely afford
