This piece is not for everyone. This is about college athletes, and it is written with empathy; it is a piece for us, by one of us -- an important distinction, as most of the dialogue concerning our existence is had without our participation.

Critics of the NCAA and of college athletes in general often talk in broad strokes of finances and corruption; they write about the ruination of academia and misaligned priorities. This is fair: There should be nothing newsworthy about an athlete who manages to not take favors from boosters or who graduates without ever landing on academic probation. Occasionally, there surfaces a piece about imbalances unrectified by Title IX; more frequently, there is chatter about gender differences in professional sports at Buzzfeed, my classmate and frequent training partner Allison McCann wrote about her struggles in the deteriorating WPS; there are similar narratives regarding the WNBA.
Female college sports already get short shrift. Paying NCAA athletes will make it worse.
