A friend of mine got paid pretty well to play basketball at NCSU, I know for a fact and he wasn't near as hot of a commodity as Cam.

It's very common.

FACT

It's rampant in major D1 college sports. Hell, I know some D3 guys that have gotten some kickbacks. I personally held onto a buddy's steroids because his room was getting raided by the cops (roommate was slingin').

Get off your high horses and accept it for what it is. Illegal benefits are common place in college sports and performance enhancing drugs are a way of life in high level athletics. Hell, not even high level. At least a quarter of my HS football team was on the juice and most of those guys had no hope of playing beyond the HS level.

People need to shut the hell up already about this "issue". Integrity in college sports is a freaking myth. Winning is all that matters. If I was a pro athlete that enjoyed a successful college career I would be trying to find a way to sue the hell out of EA sports for their NCAA football games.....they make money for free using the images of popular college athletes. Oh and

I hope he did get paid with all the money Auburn and the NCAA made off him.

Universities do all this under the cloak of "education".


Yeah they sure make a lot of money from "amateur athletics"

NCAA & FBI: "There's nothing there. He's clean."

"fan": "i don't care what the FBI and NCAA found. despite all the money they spent investigating and the man hours invested...he's guilty."

Charlies Barkley is only towing the media line. When the whole thing was out about Cam, Charlies was the first one to out Alabama as the school behind the scandal and their own dirt. He told off both the media and the Bama fans. I guess now he doesn't care, so he just let his lips fly.

If you going to accuse someone of something, then show proof. It's a nasty society we live in when folks just speculate and spread malicious gossip then demand the person "come clean." Since you're accusing me, then you need to bring the proof.


Haha seriously? Go watch the Barkley clip then come back and tell me he is spreading "malicious gossip"

Yeah I really don't understand why you guys are making such a fuss. Chuck was obviously joking.
