Maybe we should recruit kid that aren't poor that need and appreciate the value a college education for what it's actually worth?
That will work out well for all involved.
They get paid now, but we all know it's never enough. Paying cash will ruin college sports as we know it. Besides that, there's always Canadian Football.
Can't be glorying too much in all that's coming out with all these other schools unless it brings about the fall of the NCAA. Otherwise it's just a matter of time before we get hit and I don't like gambling like that. Someone's gonna get hit and get hit hard. Regardless of what Miami was accused of, I don't think it's gonna be them. And it ain't gonna be bama. Tennessee's irrelevant at this point. All schools do it.
I wonder if the black colleges would be willing to get out of the NCAA and let them pay their players first just to see how that works out. That would be a good way to gauge just how it works or doesn't work.
Tradition needs to stand for something.
Explain. Are they a sacred cow? Southern Cal thought they were a sacred cow, too.
Who gets paid? All of the players? What about the other sports? What about the smaller schools? I say leave it alone and fine the schools that break the rules.
Colleges have student athletes, not professional athletes. Leave those slimy sports agents lawyers for the pro game.
Notice I said "hit hard". Bama might get hit with something, and if they do, the NCAA's gonna have to be creative since iirc they're under probation right now. But I don't see them hitting them hard. If the NCAA had a franchise player right now, it would be Alabama. Now, since we've had various flavors of the month with the NCAA, Alabama might just have fallen out of favor with them and they might knock them down. But I just don't see that happening.
The part I will never understand about any of this is the I didnt have any food part. I was a D1 athlete and never was hungry. I came from very little money. We were all on meal plans. I cant imagine tennessee doesnt have a cafeteria or co op or whatever especially for the football players. Ok you are hungry at 11pm ok maybe... but you shouldve gone at like 8 or whatever. I think thats bogus.
Why was he lacking food? Doesn't the university feed them?
these big money schools need to start paying players, or they will keep taking money under the table from agents and fatcat boosters. Just pay them $1,000-$1,500 per month---the schools have millions and can easily afford it.
I have abetter idea, let only college ready kids play college football. What I mean is only those student athletes that can get into school on their own merit/accord, without special consideration or grade manipulation, play football.
These kids will then understand what it means to be a student athlete. How many Florida kids got all "A's" and still didn't get into Florida? Is it fair to them that these spoiled greedy kids get in on a sports scholy while failing miserably in high school?
That not fair either.
If you start that it will always be about more money. It's never enough!
no part of life is fair, the best and most talented get to play.
I'm talking about smart kids that are far more deserving of a chance at college scholarship than these spoiled little football morons.
why are they far more deserving?
This is the wrong way to look at it.
There are plenty of poor kids who appreciate the value of college expericne. There are also poor kids who frankly just want to get paid for their skills. So I say let that latter group go to some low-level professional league and get paid and the kids that really want to play college football can come play in exchange for an education.
Also, I gotta say you're the only person I've ever encountered who spells it "payed."
That's a great idea, OBOB.
