    Oh brother, you volunteer to play in exchange for your education being paid for. Don't like it, don't like that these universities make money on football games you play in, turn in your scholly and leave, or quit the team and pay for college yourself like everyone else does. Or get the NCAA to pay you money to play, then you are entitled to representation and a labor agreement.

    They would happily agree because their union boss could negotiate it out before the beginning of the season.

    Hopefully the contract will include a requirement to speak English instead of Ebonics.

    My initial reaction would be where is NU located...Chicago Illinois (or thereabouts)...then I would question who is behind this and what their end game is...if the NCAA has the same exempt anti trust status like MLB,NFL, it will be a battle they will lose

    I've heard that many Tide underclassmen decide to stay at Bama due to the fact they don't want to go to the NFL and take a pay cut!!
