Reference BleacherReport? Check

Mention Arian Foster? Check

Nothing UT related? Check


Great thread.

It's minor league football, plain and simple. NCAA makes billions off of these kids.

Self-Sustaining Athletic Departments: More Than What Meets the Eye «

1. I thought UT was one of these.
2. Where is the money going to come from to pay the athletes?
3. The NCAA WILL NOT differentiate between sports (IMHO). Therefore they will pay ALL athletes not just FB players.
4. What sports are you prepared to lose at UT to pay the remaining athletes?

My son played at UT for 4 years. Practiced 4 to 5 times per week up to 3 hours at a time. Paid his own travel expenses. Paid for his own equipment. Paid for his uniform. He played Lacrosse. This is a group of kids that practice hard and play hard and are governed by the NCAA under the heading of MCLA. They are hoping against hope that one day we could see "Varsity" Lacrosse at UT. You start paying athletes, you can give up ever having another sport added and will be looking at losing some of what we have. Just my thoughts on that subject. The NCAA can do several things before they start opening the can of worms that is paying the kids to play.

Schools would have to leave the NCAA for football for payments to be discussed. Mainly for the reason Glen mentioned, paying everyone in every sport.
