numbers of star players on them (some have stopped, but many still do). Those schools would be forced to pay the players royalties on those jersey sales, due to using their "likeness". That's just one example of how universities would be forced to pay student-athletes directly. There would be many indirect ways as well. Keep in mind, money is fungible. If, for example, boosters are diverting money toward "endorsements" then that money isn't going to the school/AD.

Also, the schools are non-profit 503(c)(3) organizations, like the United Way and Red Cross. They should be allowed to have amateur sports teams regardless of how much non-profit revenue they generate. Players who want to VOLUNTEER for these non-profit amateur teams can do so, in exchange for an athletic scholarship and other student-athlete related benefits. Players who don't want to be amateur athletes can go pro and make as much money as they want, while attending college if they so choose.
