The debate about college athletes being paid is raging again. My twitter feed has been bombarded by Jay Bilas arguing that the only people not being cut in on the profits of the NCAA are the athletes earning the money. Most notably, Bilas exposed a flaw in the NCAA’s online store, which paired athletes’ names to their school’s jersey with their number, an example of using a student’s image for profit that was long argued to occur in NCAA football games.  I agree with Bilas, but I’m going to take a different angle to the same problem.
