Piece of the Pie Money is an important issue for almost all college students Very few are lucky enough not to have the financial burdens of tuition housing and food interfere with their academic initiatives Some students have parents that are wealthy enough to cover all of the costs of college Other students are given financial aid from the university that they attend If necessary students can get jobs to help differ the costs There are no restrictions put on most students as to where they can work or how much they can earn Most students have this freedom but varsity athletes with scholarships attending Division I schools do not The National Collegiate Athletic Association the governing body of collegiate athletics restricts these athletes from having jobs Even though these athletes would have a hard time make room for a job between practices meetings and games they are not even given the opportunity to do so because of the NCAA regulations These regulations are based on the fear that athletes could be employed by affiliates of the university who could attract the best athletes by unjustifiably paying them extraordinary salaries While this may be a valid concern the regulations are most often carried out to ridiculous lengths which ultimately do not serve the purpose they are intended to have For example Northwestern University has an aspiring young actor named Darnell Autry who also happens to be the starting running back for the Universitys football team Darnell was offered a role based entirely on his acting abilities in a major networks sitcom The NCAA nearly forbid him from accepting this offer based on the regulations against athlete employment Darnell was eventually allowed to accept the job however the NCAA did not allow him to get paid for his work They reasoned that the cost of the flight out of Chicago was payment enough for Darnell As in Darnells case the regulations
