College sports is one of the best-known entertainments around the world. But for the athletes, they are students first then athletes second. For college student-athletes, there are a variety of scholarships and grants to help pay for college or college debt. However, some critics say that student-athletes should be paid a salary like pro athletes would, with help from scholarships or grants. The authors of, College Athletes are being Educated, not Exploited, Val Ackerman and Larry Scott, argue that student-athletes are already paid by free education and other necessities.
Whether it's football, basketball, cross country it's going to help the athlete grow and become mature. If the child doesn't like the sport they don't even have to do it anymore and they can only do it once. But every kid should do it because if they don't they could regret never doing to when they grow up and being in a sport is one of the best experiences a kid will ever have. A sports team is like a athletes second family, a band of brothers as the football team says and they will be there for you whenever you need them. The coaches are like the parents of the team and they will also be there for all of the athletes whether it's academically or if they need any kind of advice that theere in need of that they're to scared to ask their parents .
College trustees at both private and public colleges and universities value the brand name recognition that successful athletic teams generate. College athletics have gained immense popularity among Americans over the past few decades. This has resulted into increased revenues for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). That in turn leads more students to apply, thereby lowering the number they can accept which makes them more selective, allowing them to attract better students and faculty. Much debate exists about whether or not college sports are beneficial or detrimental to universities, particularly with the rising costs for operating programs.
Shiell, the author of “Campus Hate Speech on Trial,” opposes speech codes on campus and insists the importance of a university to “distinguish genuine harassment from mere offensiveness” (169). In order to achieve equality, a university must adopt “educational and economic measures” instead of imposing punishments due to the fact that educating has a better result in the long run (169). Also, universities must make sure that due process rights are under the protection, meaning that you might not be sinful although you are accused of disobeying speech regulations (169). Shiell believes that universities should come up with some policies that are concentrated on conduct rather than speech since speech is tolerable but not the action (169). Even if a university must set up rules to regulate, it should regulate speech that is a “targeted, intentional, repeated verbal abuse serving no legitimate academic purpose” (171).
In Guatemala, we have a lot of people who have great physical and mental abilities that would fit perfectly in the game and could succeed at it. We have few academies that develop this sport, and they don’t have the facilities to practice it at a high level. We also have a lot of fans of this sport, and I think that in a future we will have reporters and players from Guatemala. Football is a sport to join cultures so I think this would be possible. All these reasons make football on of my favorites sports, and I hope it will make it one of yours.
Freedom of speech is explicitly guaranteed as a right to citizens in the First Amendment. It is true, though, that over the course of history, various limitations and exceptions have been put on these rights. One of the most well-known is the case of Schenck v. U.S. in 1919, which established that speech that presents a clear and present danger is not protected. Various other cases have also established that speech that incites crime or presents obscene material that violates the values of society are also prohibited. Therefore, colleges should definitely prevent people who have a background of violence and crime from speaking at their campuses for the safety of their students.
A public memorial was televised at soldier field on November 6th.

The question about whether college is valuable or not has been pondered by many for quite some time. Today, this question is more important than ever as college tuition prices are rising exponentially. Some sources say that college is worth the price; that it builds human capital, teaches to live life to the fullest, and helps maintain important friendships. On the flip side, sources say that college is not worth it due to the high costs, and the fact that college graduates go into low skill jobs that don’t require college degrees anyway. In today’s workforce however, college education is a must because it lets people learn to develop communication skills, earn more money, and get high-paying jobs.
In Loco Parentis Restricting Student’s Autonomy The Latin phrase “in loco parentis,” which in Latin directly translates to “in the place of a parent,” refers to American universities controlling their student’s actions through discriminatory restraints (Lee 2011, 66). Universities and colleges during the 1960s were regulating student’s personal lives through administrative rules and would take disciplinary action, like expulsion, if broken. “From the mid-1800s through the late 1950s”, courts supported universities acting “in loco parentis” in respects to their students (Lee 2011, 66). Higher educational intuitions where not necessary acting how parents would; they where not honoring students for their academic achievements, but rather they
"Thousands cheering the synchrony from their seats or sofas can really make you feel like a part of something" (NFL). This "something" is a community, a widespread belief that the collective support and appreciation for national football is such a unitary force that divisions between anything other than favorite teams cease to hold any influence. Viewers in the stadium, in a restaurant, or on the street, are provided a medium through which they have a sense of togetherness and camaraderie. Fans want to see their team succeed, and the sport provides a healthy bucket within which viewers can pour their support and wants, all to see victory at the highest of echelons. Football also represents and acts as a reliable distraction from the problems faced by millions of Americans in their daily lives.
In addition, not only do these particular student athletes bring in revenue for their school, but they also bring in revenue for shoe companies, shoe companies and the conference in which their team is in (Meshefejian). In 2008, the top 10 Division One football teams brought in a combined revenue for their schools of $1,045,275,024.
Module 3 Questions 1. Farrey suggests that NCAA schools should do away with special admissions for athletes and athletes would have to go through the normal admission standards to get into the academic institution. a. While this idea seems ideal theoretically, is it really practical? Why or why not?
Since the students merely advocated for change during the organized demonstrations, President Franklin had no grounds to violate the students’ First Amendment rights. Also, the lower court’s ruling that allowed the President the authority to ban any organization whose beliefs are inconsistent with the mission of the university was erred based on the decision of the Healy court that authorized students the ability to advocate for their concerns. Therefore, the Concerned White Men organization should be allowed to advocate for their beliefs, although they differ with the traditional beliefs of the University. Also, the “X-Men” organization should be allowed on campus because the previous court’s decision also gave group activities, such as an organized game like Assassin, constitutional
Discovered on March 16, 1906 the National Collegiate Association was a discussion group and rules-making body (Berkowitz). The NCAA brings in an annual revenue of 912 million, making it one of the most popular athletic associations in the world (Berkowitz). Since the NCAA generates nearly a billion dollars the discussion of whether athletes should earn an annual salary for their dedication towards their sport arose. There has been a multitude of pros and cons towards this discussion, but the NCAA granted the law that collegiate athletes will not earn an annual salary. Collegiate athletes shouldn’t be paid.
By researching the background and history of the NCAA and amateurism, I will be able to find the original intent of the NCAA. Also, there has been controversial court cases over this issue that will be important to look into through the use of Google Scholar or other credible online sources. Lastly, would paying student athletes be a substitute for their scholarships? How would trading educational focus for salaries be ethical? Understanding the benefits of scholarships and comprehending more about what they provide for student athletes through sources such as EBSCOhost and
