LOL! Thanks for that.
And thanks for those with info about Don James. I barely knew of him, but everything I heard was positive.
IMHO, CFB is in a sad state. They need to allow the Student Athlete, or anybody else, make money off the game, their likeness, or anything else they want, as long as they don't gamble.
I'm against paying them outright though, as a free college scholarship is a big deal, and it would put paying students at a huge disadvantage. And they might become resentful. I'm still paying off my student loans, but I was also a single parent with teenage daughter while going to school full time. Kids are $$$
They also need to give them access to some kind of health insurance, or something similar to help them out if the injuries they sustained while playing for their college cause them problems down the road.
AND, they need to allow Student Athletes to switch to any school they want without penalty. This would force the recruiters towards legitimacy because if a Student gets to the College and finds it's nothing like they were told, then they can bail.
The NCAA has too much power, they need to be torn down, and rebuilt from the bottom up.
Anyway, I'm glad to see Coach Pete taking care of himself, and thus his family. He has a lot to be proud of. Especially with how he's helped out so many boys, to become men.
