Is it still true that none of the athletes who competed yesterday are allowed to make any money?

Is it still true that they're given bogus degrees to study?

Is it still true that their coaches and the NCAA bosses earn $millions off their backs?

Is it still true that 98% of them won't go on to be professional football players?

Is it still true that college sports in the USA is exploitation akin to slavery?

Or has it all changed in the last year or so?

Yes, yes, yes, not these teams, not even close they live like sultans, and finally no.

Sceptical.

Gladiator slaves lived like sultans too.

(Well, 2% of them did.)

Anyone on the team can opt out, transfer, etc. They are not forced to play. You should probably stop referring to collegiate athletes as slaves.

If the system didn't already exist and wasn't already accepted as normal, it would be impossible to create it because of how horrifically it exploits the people who do the physical work.

Sound familiar?

I don't see it lasting much longer, and sincerely hope it doesn't.

Why on earth not have professional football youth academies? Young soccer players who get injured before reaching the A team at least leave having earned a decent wage before their dream was destroyed; these guys are out on the sidewalk with less than nothing if that happens - no degree, no work experience, no money for medical bills.

(how's my American?)

- Yes, but they will probably be allowed to make money in 2021-22.

- It varies: many get no degree, some receive dubious degrees and some have legit degrees

- Absolutely, coaches and the NCAA make many millions.

- Overall, few turn pro. Of the Alabama-OSU players who actually played (as opposed to just on the roster) a much larger percent will be pro at least briefly (although it may still be less than half.)

- Exploitative? Yes. Slavery? No, that's a bit too hyperbolic.

- It is changing slowly with collective action by players (e.g., Missouri), changing rules on transfer and eligibility, and, likely, the right to name/image/likeness licensing in 2021-22.
