(WISH) – NCAA athletes shouldn’t be paid, according to a court, and Ball State University has a new program for aspiring entrepreneurs.

A court said NCAA athletes are not employees and are not entitled to minimum wage.

The athletes argued they spend so much time and bring money into their universities and should be compensated.

The court disagreed, saying college sports shouldn’t be considered someone’s livelihood.

The Launch Fishers Fellowship will give students a practical application of the things they learn in the dual-credit course, according to organizers.
