Should college athletes get paid for what they do on the field and on the court for their schools?  Well on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, the age old topic of paying collegiate players surfaced again in an article on The Sporting News’ website.  In the article, University of Oklahoma’s football coach Bob Stoops had made comments in regards to players getting more than what they already receive in scholarships (Stoop later clarified those comments).

Coach Stoops, whether you agree with his comments or not, does make valid points on what players currently receive in scholarships.  I want to hear from you.  What are your comments on the topic of giving college athletes stipends as part of their scholarship?  Read the articles and feel free to leave your comments here
