I'm saying that the value of a person's work is what somebody is willing to pay for it. College football players give up the opportunity to have normal jobs in order to produce something of higher value. From an economic perspective, Andre Johnson having to work at a McDonalds in Miami instead of playing football there would be a misallocation of resources. If people aren't allowed to make voluntarily trades at market value then seedy hedge fund managers will always be around to take advantage of the situation. The current atmosphere of the NCAA results in incentives that contradict its stated moral and legal interests, which is a problem.

Today I found out that the athletic programs at Oklahoma, Florida State, Auburn, Arizona State, Texas A&M, and of course SMU have all had more NCAA major infractions than USC, Ohio State, or Miami.
