Don't mess with monopsony

BCS strips Southern California of 2004 national championship - Campus Rivalry: College Football & Basketball News, Recruiting, Game Picks, and More -

Who actually thinks that big program college football players don't deserve some money. At big football schools they fill stadiums and attract donations. Many don't graduate, don't have time to get an eduction, and after several years of use are discarded as debris. College players deserve to be paid competitively for their services like anyone else. I'm typically not a big fan of unions, but in a monopsony such as the NCAA and complicit schools some sort counterbalancing organization for players might be welcome.
