But what do you propose? Paying these players actual money? How much would that be in relation to the AD's profit margin? What if the market value of their contracts was determined to be $250,000 a year; do you really think paying them that much is good for CFB?
I don't think they should get paid. I think the current rules are fine. I like the 3 year rule and taking that away would ruin CFB. The players know what they are getting into when they sign. There is no realistic way to pay them without creating all kind if scandal and keeping tabs on it would be a nightmare.
I played D1 FB on scholarship. I and everyone that played knew the deal. Whether they use the opportunity as an NFL tryout and training session or use it to get a degree is up to the player. I agree the players are given a great opportunity. I think it's a pretty fair trade currently. Problem is a high % put all their hopes in the NFL and aren't smart enough to atleast use the degree angle as a back up plan
Stay long enough and graduate for free. That is what they are getting or could get
They do this to get a rise out of you.
Anyone who actually takes what talking heads on TV and radio have to say into consideration of any kind is an absolute idiot.

Jealous? Look at the post above, you clown. I was singing his praises. I wasn't talking about Clowney in that post, I said some go to college to actually get an education. I actually even mentioned those NOT in Clowney's position...Go look at the stats, a lot of these guys go broke for one reason or the other....College education shouldn't be so much of a backup plan as it should be a necessity brought to these guys eyes. So long story short - Pay attention next time and stfu.

I was going to put a witty joke here, but I forgot bama fans still use picture books. So I thought I'd expedite the process for you...
The guy saying that "education past high school isn't part of the law" , doesn't get it.
It's up to the business to determine what qualifications are required to work there. Some places require a graduate degree for employment. Should all people who feel they are "qualified", yet only have a high school diploma try and sue?
I think all of these guys should have to take a course on fiscal responsibility haha. I played D-2 tennis and they made us take precautionary courses on sports agents and all this crap. First day I raised my hand and proclaimed, I play D-2 tennis, what the hell would a sports agent be doing contacting me? My professor / AD was not impressed with the question....but I mean really....When in the flying hell would I be in the situation where I was approached by an agent
he's had 22 wins in two seasons....a better question would be, does uga give anne murray a ring if he can pull out a single W vs SC in his career.......#0for3sofar
It's stories like this that make me your arguement intolerable.
So Vince young went to college and learned what?
How to throw a party.
Get out if here with your trash. Im sick of you. If that's your goal, congrats. You've succeeded at something. How's it feel?
If yous spending habits may help you understand.
