How do they allow the players to play in the bowl game? NCAA Football is getting dirtier and dirtier...

**** the Suckeyes. About time something happened to them. Their players getting in the bowel game with Arkansas is garbage though.

I wonder what Marvin Austin has to say about them getting to play in a bowl game when he had to sit out 14 games with no sympathy from the NCAA. They don't even try to hide their favoritism for Big Ten and SEC schools.

When is everyone going to realize that it's time to give college players an opportunity to make money? It might be questionable to sell awards and personal memorabilia from the school, but you need to look at it from the players' point of view. Sure, they pretty much have it made on campus. But they may very well have families that are struggling to get by. Realistically, that's the situation for many, if not most, college athletes. They feel a responsibility to do what they can to take care of their family. If that means selling "their own" belongings, so be it.

Whether it's being paid by the university or the NCAA, or signing on for endorsement deals, the level of play and income for college football basically makes it semi-pro, and the players should be seeing some of that money.
