Paying them salaries would make them part of a professional developmental league, so they should be treated like pro athletes -- give them a salary, with no obligation to attend classes. They can get free tuition and on-campus housing as a fringe benefit, but not as an obligation or expectation.....

If it's going to go like that, then it should be on the NBA and NFL to set up their own professional development leagues and pay the athletes out of their own very deep pockets.
