Nick Saban said his BACK UP Quarter back signed deals worth 7 figures. Things are about to get shook up in college, the places with big fan bases and lots o $$$ will become recruitment powerhouses.

Coach at MO just had state pass emergency legislation to enable student athletes to sign endorsement deals. Was in a recruiting war with Alabama for kids from MO. Unless MO was able to make them rich, they were leaving the state for greener pastures. Emphasis on green.

Unless somebody wises up and backs out of this endorsement deal stuff, new trend will be for sports agents to be signing kids in high school. Won't be any recruiting wars.....agents will negotiate with the schools for best money deal.

At least the pros have a draft. College football will devolve into a few all star teams and everyone else.

Universities have been paying them under the table for years...Duke mens basketball team is usually loaded with upper classmen...It's not because they love the coach or the university that much.

This just brings it out in the open.

Was the University of Kentucky paying their players under the table?


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Yes but it was in confederate dollars so it don't count.

Between athletes marching for social justice or whatever else comes down the pike, kneeling , etc. and now being paid money to get a degree while chasing a ball around in a circle somewhere sports has finally caught up with the NFL. The whole works is going down the drain.

At least now TX and Ok won't be in the playoff's anymore for a national title, they can have 8 or 9 win season's and everyone be happy.

Way Alabama has been rolling the past decade recruiting hasn't been fair anyway! Pretty good bet if your a great athlete it's you ticket straight to the NFL! Why gamble on that by going to some other school?


Not my circus, not my clowns.

Yes they did, and do, their current system under Calipari is a faster rotation to the pro's....I used The Duke example because I feel they implement it more into their system as standard practice, to get the maximum advantage.

Just look at the retention times at Duke.

However, Kentucky is just as guilty, they all are.


Oh, and Jtrap...You can still spend that confederate money in the SEC, Lol.

If this is a known fact to you, how's come the NCAA didn't know about it?

Yes the NFL could well sponsor major universities and thus get a real head start on draft day and would have a lot of the sign up BS out of the way before the summer practices get started. Pro scouts could help recruit for the big name colleges now that material wealth is involved, sorta makes athletic scholarship with a dorm, tuition and 3 hots seem low ball. That however may allow colleges to have more funds to recruit good players in the none money making sports.

Oh I think they very well know, catching them is a different matter...Your a smart person, do you really think these student athletes who could easily turn pro and make millions after 1 season, elect to stay 3 more years to get an education, or for loyalty to the school, coach, and fans?

Maybe 1 in 100 would do that, IMO.

Excellent probability Penn St has done it too.

If they are really good, they turn pro after one year. I would think there are more players turning pro after a year or two than there are players that become pros after 4 years in school.

All it would take is the NBA to stop creating roster spots for these self proclaimed pros. THe "D" league ? Oh I for got it offended the black players that couldn't read or spell their own name so they called it the "G" league now. ONLY so many seats on the bench in the NBA so had to put them somewhere.

LOL, If Penn State was paying players to play basketball they wasted their money. Penn State traditionally has a PP basketball team.

Yes, let's leave the Big 12 to become more relevant! The last team to leave that did so was? I'll wait...and yes, I know it's about money, but the one that said college football will suck is half right, cause that started several years ago. Lol

Sorry, we got off the subject a bit. The way I look at it the SEC wants to add Oklahoma and Texas to improve their conference in order to close the gap on the Big Ten.
