    What about drug use? No one is going to be able to stop it, should we condone it like Leslie did with the Hemp Badger?

No matter how much the Colleges educate the players about dealing with agents and the hows and how nots. There will always be shady play in every institution with a number of agents and players. Pay the players x amount per year and the agents will still swarm them like sharks so they can get there cut when they enter the draft. It'll always go on. The ncaa needs to adopt the moto ''If you cant beat em, join em''

    There will definately not be any excuses if Bama was to lose. If we get beat, we get beat. But i have a feeling Bama will be on their A game for this one and come out victorious.
    I say, give them $10K a year & pay for their school fees & housing. Give them something to help out. Even then I think that's probably too low for what they do.

    Since it headline news at SI and ESPN that players were getting payed, "Drugs were everywhere," and positive tests were ignored, I thought it was completely relevant to the conversation. Should we just let them do all the drugs they want and get payed also, since it can't be stopped? Doesn't a college program the frowns on drug use have a disadvantage in recruiting against teams like LSU and OSU where it is a non-issue?

    Honey Badger was kicked off of the team for using MJ. Then, what about teams from Washington and Colorado where it is legal? If colleges from those two states get a pass, then you can bet most of the top recruits are going to want to play there. In regards to the compensation, the rules are antiquated and unrealistic.

    If Alabama's '12 National Champion titled is stripped away, who becomes the Nat. Champ? Is it the only team that beat them? Aggies for '12 National Champs! LOL!

    Do football players deserve more than the girl who gets up works her butt off to compete in swimming? It is not supposed to be about MONEY it is supposed to be about the 100k education, meals, housing, and a level playing field Jacob. Sad thing is it isn't the kids fault. It is the fault of the suits that not only condone cheating but encourage it, for MONEY.

    I don't know if it is true. I don't know if it is not true. I only know that it mirrors what has become of amateur sports. There is no longer an
    amateur sport.

    In other late-breaking news, dogs are now known to use their mouths to retrieve and it's been discovered that our solar system includes the Earth.
