    The smart thing would be for the NCAA to turn a blind eye and allow booster to handle this as they have been secretly for decades. The $100 handshake, "summer job" at the car dealership, etc. has been around forever. Just loosen the rules to allow players to sell their memorabilia, etc. and the best players will see the money.
    RazorbackTitans high fives this.

    College football players absolutely should be paid. Many of these kids come from very humble backgrounds and regardless of scholarship are just as broke on campus as they would have been back home. The whole "their pay is their scholarship" argument is not well constructed. CFB is big big money. A lot of these players and their families decided a long time ago that these kids are going to be football players.

    What sort of overhead do Universities ACTUALLY have in providing a student athlete a scholarship? They pay for room, food, uniforms, one seat in a classroom that's already owned by the university and costs them nothing. The administrator will set some arbitrarily absurdly high number for how much all this costs, but thats all it is .. arbitrary. Especially when these kids are filling the stadium seats, selling merchandise, recruiting more free labor, etc.. etc..

    College football is already corrupted horribly, paying the players a little something is merely a relief valve for all that corruption. Pay would have to be uniform, however regardless of player skill so as to be fair. Maybe all of the FBS pays a standard rate. Think of an allowance. Something for players that have ALL of their time consumed with class and athletics to live on. A little money for their pockets that would make NFL agents a little less interesting until they finished school.

    Sure, you could give them 400 dollars a week to live on.. but then, there will be the USCs that give you 2,000 dollars a week to live on. It'll be the exact same thing all over again.

    Thats what I meant when I said all of the FBS's pay would have to be uniform. No pay grades other than the standard issue D1 allowance

    Think of some kind of grant.. but yes, made in payments so moron athletes didnt blow it all the first week

    I know what you mean, but I mean that people will still cheat the system, like USC, and pay well more than they are supposed to.

    What can you really do about cheaters? Schools are already cheating. I dont see how you can plan for cheaters either way.

    But it's true. Do you think Florida State would've been undefeated if they played any SEC west schedule? I don't. And I do think Florida State was the best team this year.

    All you can do is hang your hat on one year, and that clearly proves you are just a bandwagon Florida State fan or you wouldn't care.

    The BCS era speaks for itself and anyone that doesn't see the SEC dominance is a clueless idiot.
