Let’s discuss the “aren’t free” assertion. What do they “cost?”

I’m assuming there’s some NCAA or not for profit accounting rule that requires assigning a certain P/L value to a scholly but the cash cost to a University for a scholly is much less than the face value of tuition room and board. Why can’t the P/L treatment be ignored? The marginal cost in terms of actual cash value is MUCH less burdensome.
