Not opposed to college athletes getting a bigger piece of the pie. there is nothing amature about big time CF or CBB. Everyone gets rich except for the players - Coaches, schools, conferences. 

The way to do it is like College Baseball. Let the blue chips go pro or semi-pro straight out of HS. And let college football be for the students that want to go to college.
