Inquiry: Should NCAA student-athletes be paid?
Proposed thesis: NCAA student athletes should be rewarded for their contribution to the success
of the NCAA with money instead of scholarships.

Romeo, Nick. Does the NCAA Exploit Student-athletes? The Boston Globe.
BostonGlobe.com. Web. 22 Feb. 2016
This article discusses how the NCAA is exploiting their own student athletes and doing
nothing to repay them for their hard work. The author, Nick Romeo, goes into talking
about how the NCAA bylaw even states that athletes should be protected from
exploitation by professional and commercial enterprises, and how the NCAA needs to
change the way they treat student-athletes. Romeo explains, Division 1 football and
mens basketball are the major cash-generating sports in college athletics. Americas 25
highest-paid football coaches at public universities earned an average annual salary of
$3.85 million in 2014 (Romeo). This article was published in late February of 2016,
which makes this a very up-to-date and credible source for me to use in my paper. This
source gives great information I could use in any area of my paper, and it also includes
great quotes. Romeo includes economical facts on how the NCAA is making a ton of

money off of the student-athlete success, and they only get paid through scholarships and
sub-par meal plans at their universities.

Sanderson, Allen R. Enough Madness: Just Pay College Athletes. Chicagotribune.com. N.p.,
n.d. Wed. 02 Feb. 2016
This article discusses biasedly on paying college athletes and how it would benefit both
the student athletes and even the NCAA to pay college athletes. Many athletes and
universities get in trouble for giving various compensations to the athletes and this can all
be avoided with paying the athletes. Sanderson says, The bountiful revenues flowing to
NCAA members and the relative pittance going to the players, who are the people most
responsible for generating those revenues, has created growing unease in the court of
public opinion. This article was also made very recently in early February of 2016, so it
has up to date information and credible opinions. The author gives great insight on both
sides of the argument, but mostly defends the student athletes in this article and has great
opinions to back up his argument. He gets into politics, and how paying college athletes
would be revolutionary for sports and the world in general in a very positive way. This
article would be good to use in my body paragraphs where I would argue that paying
college athletes would be great.
Paying College Athletes. Issues & Controversies. Infobase Learning, 21 June 2010. Web. 28
Jan. 2016. <http://icof.infobaselearning.com/recordurl.aspx?ID=1775>.

This article is about the economic side of why college athletes should be paid. It provides
graphs and charts on the rise of the NCAA in recent years and the amount of revenue they
are making and how the athletes arent getting compensated for anything. It also gives
some opinions of why it wouldnt be a good idea, but in this article, the positives of
paying them outweigh the negatives. This article was issued in June of 2010, so it is fairly
recent but not as recent as the previous two articles. This may affect the statistics and
graphs they give, but it displays the overall idea that the NCAA has made a lot of revenue
within the past decade off of student-athletes. I would use this article anywhere in my
paper because it gives such good information that it would fit into any paragraph.
Zirin, Dave. An Economist Explains Why College Athletes Should Be Paid.The Nation. N.p.,
27 Mar. 2015. 29 Jan 2016
This article gives insight from an economist, who gives his opinions on why college
athletes should be paid. He talks about all aspects of the issue, including talking about
overpaid college coaches along with politics. This article was published in March 2015,
which is a very recent article. Having an economist give his opinions in the article is
extremely helpful because it gives insight from not just the sports side and moral side, but
the economic side and how it will make sense to pay the athletes. I would use this article
in my body paragraphs because it gives good quotes and opinions that I could use to
support my argument.
Sanderson, Allen R. "The Case for Paying College Athletes." JSTOR [JSTOR]. N.p., n.d. Web
This source was from a journal on economic perspectives, and in this journal was a
chapter on paying college athletes. The author gives information on the highest paid
college football and basketball coaches in America, where they each get paid millions and
millions of dollars. While the coaches do bring a winning edge to a team, the players are

also the ones making the NCAA successful, which is what this article is about overall.
This article doesnt give an exact date as to when it was published, but it gives statistics
up to 2013, which is pretty recent. This source gives good information for my body
paragraphs to defend my argument, and could also give great quotes as well.
"So You Want To Be A Millionaire While You Go To College?" JSTOR [JSTOR]. N.p., n.d.
Web.
This article discusses the economics side of paying college athletes more than the moral
side of paying them. Paying college athletes was the central idea of the article and served
as very biased toward this view. Along with my other articles, it gave statistics and graphs
to show how much the NCAA is benefiting and how the student athletes are not. This
article was published in 2000, which is a pretty out of date article. It gave great opinions
and information, but I think I should refer to the more recent articles before I refer to or
quote this article. The information in this article would work best if I used it in my body
paragraphs or my intro paragraph.
