Well, we can make a simple calculation about how much players are worth. In professional sports, people on the field get 50 percent of the revenue generated. The star athlete might get 10 to 15 percent of the payroll. If we apply those norms to college teams, we could say the star quarterback for the University of Alabama is worth $4–5 million a year based on that. Plus, a large share of athletes don't graduate. Or they graduate without learning. So they're not even getting the value that's being alleged.
