AbstractThere is big money in college sports, however, nearly all universities lose money on athletics and cover the shortfall through tuition and taxes. Despite these resources allocated towards athletics, increasing concern is voiced about the exploitation of student-athletes. One suggestion to address these concerns is to create a college major in athletics, where students would earn a degree by training and playing. Or, pay non-student athletics a salary and run athletics as a semi-pro revenue-producing side business.
