If income from sports is the driving factor to pay student-athletes, several major problems arise from such a decision. One problem is who gets a salary and the second problem is how much should they be paid. Also, if the income from the sports do not cover the cost of the student-athlete salaries, tuition cost will most definitely rise. The flip side is that the student-athlete entered college, in many instances with a scholarship, chose to play a particular sport because they like to play the game and have therefore decided to participate and should not expect to be paid as a professional athlete. By paying student-athletes a salary would dramatically alter college life for student-athletes as well as non-student-athletes.
Furthermore, there are benefits student players already receive, such as scholarships and other aids from their school. The scholarship conta... ... middle of paper ... ...cusing on getting an education as well as their sport; whereas, professionals are just focusing on their sport. I believe college athletes should not get paid for various reasons: they receive scholarships, perks and it would create problems with the university expenses. Paying student athletes would create major issues that the universities might face. It may lead to athletic departments becoming more of a business instead of helping athletes receive an education.
Practice + Pain =Success The movie Coach Carter is a very inspirational and motivational movie. Coach Carter takes over coaching his high school basketball team. The team is a group of students who are rude, undisciplined, and out of control. Coach shows many different levels of negotiations throughout the movie. He uses many tools to accomplish his goals such as the want factor, collaboration, crafting agreements, and negotiation change.
The brawl is captured on the crowd's mobile phones and personal video cameras, and soon is downloaded to the internet. This is in fact the last game Jake will play at this high school as he and his family is moving to Orlando, Florida. His younger brother, Charlie (Wyatt Smith), has received a tennis scholarship at a school there. His mother (Leslie Hope) is upset that Jake often seems to be fighting and getting into trouble, but despite this, Jake and Charlie are close. At his new school, Jake has a hard time fitting in.
Athletics is hurting the school system by taking away money from academics, giving athletes more privileges than nonathletic students, and it is effecting the outcome of students. Sports are not terrible because they are very beneficial for everyone’s health, they help build skills and provides them with opportunities for a brighter future. Then again it is harmful towards school systems because the athletics department takes a portion of money they school have and put it into its teams. That’s not the best idea because as we have seen from the Western Carolina football team, the money put towards improving their performance is not helping. Do not get me wrong it helps some school sport teams improve, but if we focused more on education, then maybe we could improve our test scores throughout the United States.
They are being given excessive and undeserved grade changes to maintain athletic eligibility. They are getting extra tutors that write the papers instead of teaching. These actions are demeaning academic establishments where athletics are suppose to be extra curricular to the educational priority. To begin with, division one athletic programs are allowed by the NCAA to provide athletic scholarships to high school athletes. These scholarships permit students to attend universities who very often have not reached the scholastic accolades to attend the specific institution; it is purely their athletic abilities that allow these people to not only study at these schools but attend at a discounted tuition or free of charge.
Do sports matter more than academics? This is a question various people enjoy debating. In many ways sports are important, but other times it may seem like a great pastime. “Why Sports Matter”, written by Wilfrid Sheed, recalls how sports changed entirely over the past decades. Sheed comments that it’s a good thing because it teaches discipline and how college athletes do not get paid for their hard work.
On the other hand, athletes spend so much time and effort in their specific sport they don’t have time to earn extra money, which establishes the need for money from their school. Either way, the decision to pass a law of this magnitude is still up in the air. Athletic scholarships are a great way to receive a free education and many people believe that school is the only thing it should pay for. There are many reasons as to why individuals argue this. One consequence of passing a law relating to student-athletes receiving money may be possibly corrupting the NCAA system.
Then, you couldn’t necessarily pay the major football and basketball program players more, because then it isn’t fair to the rest of these college athletes that put in the same amount of work and time into their respected sports. Another argument comes into mind when talking about athletes getting paid. They are already paid by the NCAA and universities. Just not in a form of monetary value the... ... middle of paper ... ...any monetary value for their tenure and performance in intercollegiate sports. When many people say that division one athletes are paid, they do not realize that they are already paid.
At first most of them were skeptical of him as a coach, but that changed very quickly once they started winning games. When it came to the principal and even the teachers they did not care about the schooling ideas. They just thought of him to be there solely to coach basketball. He changed everyone’s opinions by sticking with it and fighting through oppression. He showed his integrity by not giving in to what society was ok with, and that is with the young men just getting by and letting basketball in high school be the highlight of their life.
