I think the average D-1 player would probably not like his actual market value very much compared to his current total compensation from the universities.

I do believe that a lot more could be done for the long-term health of these kids, but I am fairly certain they would end up on the losing side of breaking the NCAA cartel. Most of the value is tied up in the university brands, not the players themselves.

That's not to even begin to dig into Title IX issues, but that's a whole other box.
