"Should college athletes be allowed to earn personal income from their notoriety?"
Region views on college sports
Orlando Cabrera, Whiting | "No. They're not employees yet. They're still technically students. They should earn their way into the pros."
Angelic Rodriguez, Valparaiso | "They should. If anyone could make money, it should be the athletes themselves. I think it's wrong not being able to make money. If you work, then it should be considered a job."
Joshua Bruner, Hammond| "Why not? They brought themselves to that point. They should get what they deserve."
Diane Carr, Munster | "Yes. The other kids are making money working. It's a way to pay for school by considerating it a job. It's hard work."
Bill Sommer, Thornton | "Yes. Most of the kids aren't on scholarships, and it's a way to earn money."
Andrew Hurlburt, Valparaiso | "They're already getting scholarships. If you pay them, then it gets to be the same as the NFL. When someone has a injury, then they don't play but get paid."
