I'll post this before I post a snarky comment: my crusade to just have the colleges treat student-atheletes as pro atheletes. C'mon, most colleges in the big divisions make tons of money from these sports. I believe it's time to just treat the big time college sports as a business, pay the players, and go from there.
Hell, how many times does it have to come out that players are getting favors from boosters, free Hummers, ect. ? JUST PAY THE DAMN PLAYERS !
"Shepard said Rice officials had no knowledge of the parties described by Lower and that if such gatherings took place, they were "completely out of line with the university's standards.""I can't believe any of our athletes are that stupid," Gillis said in a university statement."
I guess he says that only because he knows none of his students are related to Len Bias ?
/On my Honor, I ain't cheated.
Uh. Couple of decades off there, but I was at WRC in the eighties (only on paper. I was a poor kid with a waiver to live off-campus. But WRC was my assigned college, anyway.)
Sure, but how many really take advantage of that free education ? But my point is, even with that, every so often a story comes around about students violating an NCAA rule regarding gifts, or whatever they call it. Hell, isn't even true that there's some kind of rule regulating how a student athelete brings in income ?
I say offer them the free education then (or not), but also any scholl in the higher divisions should just pay them. Not like they don't have the money to. How much money do you think all the colleges in March Madness will make ?
