NCAA executives not only get big bonuses for the big sports, but the small ones as well.

NCAA executives are not only getting huge salaries when the big programs like football, basketball & baseball win titles. Bonus structures for small sports programs pay out as well. Take for example Ohio State AD Gene Smith. Smith gets a $18,447.94 bonus for a wrestler winning NCAA title.
There has always been big controversy over wether or not colligate athletes should be paid. But, when you hear the bonus structure for some of the executives and directors that literally get paid "extra" when a student athlete performs well should affect your opinion.
Sure college athletes receive free education and a stipend check while they are in school. But does it come close to the revenue that the university makes off of each athlete and the bigger question is why the huge pay outs to the executives and directors?
Do you think college athletes should be paid anything for their contributions their colleges and universities?
