I don't think players will ever get paid a salary for playing football in college. At most I can see them getting full cost of attendance (travel to and from, tuition, books, housing, meals etc) + a stipend so they can go do other activities their peers would do. Since it is a voluntary system I don't think the government can or will force schools to pay them. If kids don't want to go to college they can workout and pay for a trainer themselves like some kids that get kicked out do or they can go play in the CFL like some high school basketball players are starting to go overseas to make money

They actually can't stipulate what the student gets for what they provide in return. That is deemed payment for services by the IRS and the whole amount of the scholarship that says this money is for you perfoming xyz becomes income and is then taxed.

Except the media doesn't decide who goes anymore. As long as the committee likes a team it doesn't matter what a spin machine says. I think the members on this panel won't pay much attention if any to media hype.

Facts are OSU is a young team with a freshman QB that stumbled in a close game early in the season. Plus I think all the other teams including FSU will lose this year.

Wow reading through this thread I think you guys maybe didn't watch all the other games (I did) and the only teams that had better games than Oh St was probably GA and TAMU. Navy is a good team and we only beat them by ~4 at home in 2009 and that was a Rose Bowl Championship team that completely shutdown Oregon. I think going against a "normal" opponent will show how dominant our defensive line is going to be this year.

1. Georgia
2. Oregon
3. Oklahoma
4. Florida State
5. Ohio State
6. Texas A&M
7. Michigan State
8. Alabama
9. Auburn
10. Stanford

Don't think we'll drop many top10 teams struggled and I think we played the best team besides A&M.

Wiggins looks like a star in the making, I wouldn't trade him. The T-wolves will get desperate in Feb. and take Waiters/Bennett and a 1st round pick.
