Okay, you know what? F*ck y'all. Pay the goddamn players and stop creating cults of coaches, especially overrated ones that always sh*t the bed like Dabo f*cking Swinney.

And this is coming from one of the few remaining people that is fine with not paying players because honestly, that's not what the fans are coming to see. When you're f*cking marketing your sh*tty assclown coaches and pretending they're the valuable commodities, and you give them a cut? GTFO.

Tuition, board, and incidentals at Clemson is $40,070 a year. I'd say they're paid enough already.

They should come out with a Dabo themed game.

Perhaps gambling and women could be involved.

Surely nothing could go wrong!

As soon as they have the option to take that as a check, we'll agree their paid enough.

As long as they're being "paid" in tuition for a degree they don't want, at a value made up by the school that's pretending to pay then, which a ton of them don't finish anyway, they're not being paid enough.

Can FSU trademark the ass kicking we gave them earlier this year?

I got that - plus a bi-weekly stipend - as a student on a regular scholarship working for my university.  I see no reason the athletes shouldn't get a stipend too.  A college athlete cannot accept any non-family money, goods, or services.  If you come from a reasonably well-off family, this means nothing, since your parents will happily send you walking around money for not having to pay tuition.  But poor athletes are pretty much screwed.  Going to the movies, a club, or even down to the local pizza joint is not going to happen, because you have no money to go - and cannot even have a side job to get some cash.  Even the kids loaded with student debt and working two jobs can go get pizza on the weekends.  When a booster then shows up and offers you money, of course you take it, because you are a kid with poor impulse control (note, not because you are an athlete, but because you are a college kid), and you would like to have some fun in college.  I've known college athletes where one ran around doing as he wished (because his parents sent him a check every week), and the other who was effectively a hermit, because his mother barely made rent most months.

Telling kids that they should be should be grateful they are being allowed to make money for the university, and to just accept they are commodities does not encourage the creation of well-adjusted adults.  Give them a little walking around money.  Let them legally be able to pay for the things other college kids can. I'm not talking $10K a fortnight, but $200/month would be in line with what I got for saving the university from having to hire a real staffperson.   It won't stop booster abuse*, but at least the kid isn't quite such an easy mark if he can pay his own way at least a little.

Either that, or if the coach and Ad are getting fark you money, make their happy asses have to run one play against the opponent's defense per game.  Cause I would pay good money to watch those little tin gods run screaming like little girls before being put in traction.

*I swear they check you for the presence of a soul before allowing you to be a booster, and reject you if you have one.

I think the "Osceola's biatch" trampstamp branded onto Tajh Boyd did that.

Can't really say that the team represents the college in any way if you're just cutting 'em a check, though.

/would prefer to solve this by eliminating non-students from the rosters
//create a d-league that no one will watch for them, instead. Make the NFL subsidize it.
