These players receive a free top notch education, free room and board and a $300 dollar allowance per week and that was not enough for them?
Who told you that? Athletes get no weekly allowance. That is the main argument against the NCAA. They dont allow athletes to even have jobs. For fear
of 'buying' an athlete.
The University gets millions repping these kids out, and they have to rely on family or friends for gas money.
I understand its a catch-22....but ridiculous none-the-less.
I think Tressell should be fired. Any other coach at any other university and he would be gone. 5 games is a joke.
The message this sends to poor kids at top notch schools (USC, FL ST, FLA, NEB, UM, TX, etc) sell your items and miss the preseason. Be back in time
for the conference play.
