    I think you are operating under the common misperception that college football earns a profit for the schools that participate. The reality is that a few college football programs break even and a VERY few turn a profit. The rest all lose money.

    Accordingly to the Tampa Bay Times, in Florida, only UF's program turns a profit. The rest, including FSU and Miami, lose money.

    So what "cut of the revenue" should the players be entitled to beyond the average $94K per year that D1 schools spend per football player? Should these guys also get $10K a game or something???

    It is a huge opportunity for these players to be able to participate in college football. For most of them, it will be the experience of a lifetime. Plus, assuming they are interested, the athlete can get a high-quality, free education..

    I think most of these whiners need an attitude adjustment. If they don't realize what a great deal they have, then they should decline to participate and just be content with what they already have.
