      If Division I football players are slaves, then surely Division III players must be even more enslaved. Both participate voluntarily, both practice hard, both play hard, both run the risk of injury. Yet the Division III will pay student loan bills for years.

      Perhaps there needs to be some changed made in college athletics. But in no way, shape or form is it similar to slavery.
