Again it will never work. Completely stupid idea in every way. Yes let's allow paying players so the richest schools can just legally throw dufflebags around to get all the top players. One of the stupidest things I've heard of. They're getting a free college education. They deserve nothing else. A 4 year degree at the University of Miami costs about $220,000. Let me say that again. $220,000.
Again, who cares about "the sanctity of amateur sports." It's nothing more than a salary cap, that's necessary. Teams are going to break rules regardless. Especially when you have complete idiots running the NCAA. There's your real problem. When a complete incompetent like Mark Emmert turns a blind eye to an entire conference because they make him the most money, there's your real problem.
Absolutely. The University of Miami football program alone brings in 24 million in revenue (7 million profit). You telling me they can't set aside 280k like the SEC schools? C'mon, man.Originally Posted by MadDog 88
And you're naive enough to believe these SEC schools are going to follow that rule too

The joke isn't the NCAA or the colleges, the joke is the win at all costs mentality that has been associated with NCAA Football or big college business.
The NCAA is what it is, a peanut in a field of elephants. The Elephants mill around at will and occasionally offer one of their own up for sacrifice to maintain the allusion of gamesmanship.
Until the millions of dollars in greed money isn't at stake the game will be about producing a better product, growing revenue and protecting your slice of the pie at all costs. The days of playing the game for fun are over, now it is a "who's going to pay me" mentality and that is what killed college football as a pure sport.

College football is alive and well. As well or better than it's ever been...and it's been around a lot longer than professional football.
It's the corrupt NCAA as a governing institution that's going by the wayside in the near future, not college football.
