To me, I don't think it's a big deal. I would still love to have him on the team. People give Cam a ton of crap for doing it, this proves Cam is far from the only guy doing this.

Society should just accept this happens. I played with a guy that transferred to my school from Ole Miss. We were talking about Oxford and how things were down there one night. He said after games, the Ole Miss players would walk through "The Grove" and guys would collect hundreds to thousands of $$'s depending on how they played that day. This was back in the early 90's.

I've said this before, the NCAA and BCS are the real criminals in all of this. I don't blame the players one bit man. If these idiot, nut job boosters want to give you a shitload of cash to play for their school and make a QB sack or TFL, take the money and run.

And almost perfect timing.

Every major program does it. I accepted that a long time ago. What I am starting to realize now is that the NCAA most likely knows this stuff goes on. And they do nothing. Too much money coming toward them.

I played for a small school and was forced to change my spring class schedule because it conflicted with spring practice one night a week. If coaches are doing that at small schools, imagine what it's like at large schools where the football program brings in millions. In the end, most schools could give two craps about the student-athlete. All they are worried about is collecting money. Good for the players getting their share. Like I said, if these morons want to give teenagers thousands of $$'s to play a game for their schools, laugh all the way to the bank.

Ironically, I am on the owners side of the CBA situation.

    • I have to apologize to @TheRed , not for what I have said, but most certainly how I have said it. He was right that this isn't how I normally post and my passion for the subject matter got the best of me and left me with the just the worst. I should have said, "Please, you have obviously got an informed opinion and a desire to get the best out of this country we share, so don't pass up on your opportunity to cast a ballot. It doesn't have to be for every race, but find someone or something you can get behind and put your votes there." One single vote may not matter in a presidential, or even gubernatorial, election, but don't let that turn you into thinking the voter doesn't matter. Look, act and vote local -- these are the races that have the most impact on your life and where you have the most impact, too. A change at the local level does reverberate up the ladder, it is how all great movements start. I won't get on you or anyone else about not voting again, but please, in exchange, could you just commit to casting a ballot next time your local elections roll along? You are full of smart ideas and are passionate about a number of issues, don't let that go to waste. You might very well actually improve things. And Lord, we sure do need that, don't we? Once again, my apologies to @TheRed and @NanuqoftheNorth for going above and beyond in calling you out. You deserve a better shake than I gave you.
    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4
