If we're ever going to get to a system where corruption scandals like what we've seen with the University of Miami football program are a thing of the past, we have to get real about fairly compensating players for their efforts. I am of the mindset that players should be getting any revenue in excess of cost + 10% (ie., 10% net margin).
Average Player Compensation (Proposed Model):
Given that the expenses column referenced above already included the cost of education for the players, I think these compensation numbers should be in addition to the cost of education.
