A lot has been made lately of Johnny Manziel signing photos and collecting money. I do not favor college athletes being paid.  HOWEVER, and this is a huge however, those in money-making sports that are taken advantage of should be able to sign autographs or make money on their own considering how much these schools and athletic departments make off of them with TV deals, jersey sales and other revenue streams.  So, basically, big time college basketball and football athletes should be allowed to make money outside the school how they see fit, and really, if other athletes want to sign and collect in non-money making sports, let them!  The NCAA should also allow student athletes, for those who actually are, to work during the sports off-season.  Then you don't have to worry about whether or not athletes should be paid or not.  Do you think college athletes should be paid?  Vote here:
