Want more evidence that the NCAA should pay players? Listen to what Packers punter Tim Masthay did in college. 

Masthay told Market Watch that when he was a sophomore at Kentucky, he lived in a utility closet for $100 a month to save money. It turned out to be a pretty good choice. With the money he saved, he was able to buy his wife an engagement ring.
