What definition are you pulling this from? Maybe by tradition, but certainly not by definition.Because by definition college football players are not allowed to collect money. They are rewarded with a scholarship and an education. That’s the “college” part of it. Openly paying college football players has never occurred. Research SMU. Ask Jeremy Pruitt what happens when you do that. They were made an example of what happens when such infractions occur.
