NBC on Yahoo Sports

The allegations of illegal benefits against five SEC players add to the growing list of incidents involving college athletes and money. Johnny Manziel endured a well-publicized situation this summer, in which he was investigated for capitalizing off his own likeness. Reggie Bush had his 2005 Heisman Trophy taken away for receiving improper benefits while at USC. These are just a few of the more high-profile examples of violations, all of which center on the NCAA's prohibition of amateurs receiving pay.

Yahoo! Sports' national columnist Dan Wetzel (@DanWetzel) joins SportsDash to discuss the folly of amateurism in the wake of the newest case of NCAA athletes receiving benefits.
