    Final Four another sad reminder that NCAA athletes can't profit from their likeness

    Each year, March Madness is the NCAA’s biggest event from a revenue standpoint.

    It brings in more than $900 million annually, as CBS reported in 2015, with about $770 million of it coming from the 14-year $10.8 billion deal the organization signed with CBS for the tournament’s broadcasting rights back in 2006. Although it brings in this massive revenue for the NCAA, players are not only unable to earn a lucrative salary — although scholarships can also cover food and housing with small stipends — or any revenue sharing from their success, but they are unable to profit from their likeness.

    Most of colleges are in the money making business. I do not think they should pay students. In fact most pro athletes are paid way to much. Most of the sport players are getting their education for playing sports, via scholarships. Higher education is very costly. Many students go into debt to further their lives. Schools are never held accountable for the failure of ones learning. Where are these schools that are willing to teach on their own dime. Why does a coach make tons of money. I think most professors are over paid.
