“Our team is worth 1.5 BILLION dollars but it wouldn't be fair to other students if we get a free hamburger.”
A recent Wall Street Journal report valued the Ohio State, Texas and Oklahoma football programs at $1.5 billion each.

Of course, NCAA athletes aren’t allowed to profit off their likenesses or take impermissible benefits of literally any kind. They can’t take free things, nor do they get paid. Sure, Burrow is the backup, but in the greater scheme of things, he certainly has a point.
