    The players who actually do the work and draw the fans are told "sorry kid but since it's an amateur sport we can only give you a $20,000 a year scholarship." Then they pay the coaches 8 million a year!!!

    And free tutors. They usually are not the brightest bunch. Love football, but let's be real.

    So? If it weren't for those coaches, those players would not have a chance to move forward and make millions themselves.

    Talk to the NCAA. They set the ''rules''. :icon_rolleyes:

    The players do get paid. They get a free education. And guess what, when that player graduates the fans will still show up. Im sure the fans of Alabama think Nick Saban is worth his salary. I am also sure the fans at LSU wish he was still there.

    The reality is college football fans show up to support their team, and the individual players are less important than the coach.

    They do. Think. They get an education, a place to live...many more perks.

    I am okay with it if it was decided to start giving them monetary perks as well. But it is asinine what the AD of OS had to say.
    I can't help it if he is scared Urban may want the same.............Oh.......what is HE paid??

    Urban Meyer's contract: More years, much more money
