I kind of figured the rules would be for everyone, but I did read where kids on scholorship are only allowed to make $2000 a year. If you aren't on scholorship then I am guessing you can make all you want. Didn't know what rules were set for what kind of jobs a non-scholorship athlete could do. I thought maybe they could make some appearances at camps for high schools or go talk to elementary kids and make a bit of cash. I still don't know if college wrestlers make money for helping out at summer camps. I guess not, but it seems like a big commitment for no return.
I am still looking into the 7% thing. I saw an article that said 22 FBS schools made money last year and 98 didn't. But they are counting scholorships as an athletic expendature. I'm not sure I agree with that because it's money they never had to begin with. I doubt the athletic dept. actually gives the school any money, they just don't take any in. Even so, I am suprised by that figure. I can't seem to find a figure on how much the NCAA makes with television deals and paraphenalia sales ect.......I bet they make a bunch even if most schools are losing money.
