Generally speaking, IME most of the kids who had a decent measure of talent and had the desire and drive to go on and play in college manage to do it. Granted, they don't and most won't end up at big-time schools, but there are nearly always going to be enough smaller schools looking for players wanting to play, really wanting to play that most get that chance.

Revenue sharing and other rules have helped in this regard.

Some college attendees will get introduced to the IRS. They will learn that there is more than putting a check in the bank and going out on the town to spend it.

They get to learn that while they also learn about loans.

Still, that link shows $15 million going to non-athletic uses.


Most likely debt service as Michigan's does.

I'm all for it. Let them earn some cash for their likeness and names if they can. Make it legal in every college athletic program. It might even help even the playing field with the "Power 5" school who already pay their players, just under the table with a blind eye from the NCAA.

People like to make this about NCAA football (eff every big school out there, by the way) when this could be huge for the local athlete/celebrity who plays any other sport. The opportunity to make some cash off of being the local track or baseball star at whatever college would be great for those kids.

Opinions?


I dunno.

On the one hand, schools can bring in a lot of money through their sports programs, so in essence the players are helping them do that, so maybe they too should be compensated.

On the other hand, however, it is likely that the prospect of getting paid to play will go to their heads. Top teams with top players can already have ego problems, and I just see this adding to it. We see this in pro sports to a degree, and I do necessarily think it should be in college sports.

The NCAA should just disallow schools that pay to play from being part of their organization. If California people like to play with themselves, they are welcome to do their own thing in their own home. Let's try to suppress greed in college football, not endorse it.

I am shocked! Ego problems? Why in the world would any college team have ego problems? Especially in NCAA football... one game with the Crimson Tide and all those ego problems go away.

Of course, Alabama doesn't have an ego problem... when you're obviously the best, it's fact, not ego.


(Don't blame me; it's in the rulebook. There's a penalty for an Alabama fan not showing sufficient arrogance: 10 yards and loss of down.)

Yes, it's nearly $15million.

They don't go into specifics as to where the profit of $15million is going so without that information it cannot be definitively said where the money is going, student scholarships or debt service.

I'm also going by what University of Alabama says... they claim the profits from sports programs (which is what that &15 million would be) go back into non-athletic scholarships. Considering my Bachelors at UAH (same college, just a different arm) was paid by scholarship, I tend to believe them.

They will. It's a violation of their policies to pay players so CA, in an attempt to get their players money and recognition, will instead suppress them to play in state, thus eliminating their chance to get noticed. It's ironic and funny at the same time.

In no particular order, the CFP this year will be LSU, Alabama (if their matchup is close and all other games are won), OSU, and Oklahomo. Those also happen to be four of the highest scoring offenses. OU #1, LSU #3, Alabama #4, and OSU #8. All four are pulling starters by the start of the 2nd half or a few minutes into the 3rd, minus LSU when they played a top ten Texas on the road.

Alabama fans are damm loyal too. They all want to see Jalen Hurts go undefeated untill that game lol. And they want him to be a very close second in the heisman..

They are actually rooting for OU ..thats weird..

Y'all are coming along pretty good yourself. Too bad you have to play us... you might have gotten to the championship.

I finally got to see Tua's brother play! Damn, he's good. If anything, his arm is a little more accurate than Tua's. By the time Tua graduates, he'll be ready to step right into his shoes.

We do have to work on our defense, though. We are still winning, but the real season is coming up now: SEC teams. I saw a lot of mental errors last week.

That's the case in Washington. UW head coaches are the highest paid state employees.
