    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.

    Spurrier think's they can certainly afford it for their football players.


    The coaches want this. They want these things like Oklahoma State and Dj Fluker to stop popping up every month over petty cash. Most of these incidents are largely avoidable.

    I also think they should be allowed to make money off their image. Manziel should be able to sign helmets and autographs for a few thousand bucks. Terrelle Pryor should be allowed to give his game jerseys in exchange for a tattoo. Most of these guy's don't go on to make it in the NFL. A lot of them will be at their peak value in college. You don't think Ryan Swope wishes he could've signed a couple helmets back at A&M? That's just my opinion, though. The coaches are pushing for a little extra pocket cash, but they'll probably keep them from making money off their image because of some garbage about "the sanctity of amateur sports".
    This isn't professional sports so the notion of paying one without paying all doesn't come down to what's fair or not. Even if you only pay football players, schools can't afford it. Again I ask, can the U afford to pay players? Even only football players? The same U that has close to 100 players and can't get a decent home crowd. The same U that has a football budget that is under 1 mil. And the U is just one team. Think about the other 120+ teams and ask yourself who can pay their players.

    Newsflash: They already get all the top players.

    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.

    And you're naive enough to believe these SEC schools are going to follow that rule too

    The requirement to pay equally comes from federal law. Title IX might not require you to pay the guy on the wrestling team the same amount, but it definitely would require you to pay the woman on the gymnastics team the same as football players.

    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.

    It's time for the big boys to just break off and start their own league.
