Obama weighs in on guaranteed scholarships for student-athletes

President Obama has been added to the list of people who think college athletes deserve more than they get. In an interview with the Huffington Post on Friday, the president said that the NCAA should require schools to offer guaranteed athletic scholarships “no matter what.”

The president also suggested that NCAA rules meant to protect the concept of amateurism can be too draconian, especially considering the money going to schools and coaches.

From the Huffington Post:

“What does frustrate me is where I see coaches getting paid millions of dollars, athletic directors getting paid millions of dollars, the NCAA making huge amounts of money, and then some kid gets a tattoo or gets free use of a car and suddenly they’re banished,” Obama said. “That’s not fair.”
