Michigan State star squashes Florida player's "modern slavery" claim
Florida defensive back Jalen Tabor ruffled some feathers earlier in the week when he commented on the SEC’s $527.4 million in revenue in 2015.
Tabor said that the massive profits were a sign of “modern slavery.” He later backed off the claim, saying that he didn’t use the right wording.
But he did say that his argument remained the same and that athletes should get a cut of the ever-increasing revenue generated in college football. Naturally, the pay-for-play argument surfaced once again among the college football world.
Well, Michigan State linebacker Riley Bullough had enough of that.
He took to Twitter to squash the chirps he’d been hearing from his fellow players.
Dont get the argument by college athletes wanting to get paid. Scholarship players get more than enough money each month. Stop complaining

Whether or not you agree with Bullough, it is worth noting that a star linebacker that played in the College Football Playoff doesn’t believe college athletes should get a piece of the pie.
Will it spark a changing in thinking among his fellow players? That remains to be seen. At the very least, Tabor’s thoughts were not unanimous among college football players.
