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
Tuition isn't used for athletics at OSU
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.
Depends on the new NFL drug policy.
Ya wish they would use a different one if they use the alts. I liked the all whites vs um
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.
4. Florida State
5. Ohio State
6. Texas A&M
7. Michigan State
watchespn is free on military bases and universities
Don't think we'll drop many top10 teams struggled and I think we played the best team besides A&M.
Marines kick ass, but the Navy is what makes the USA a world power.
I think being the Ohio State head coach is like the president of the USA even if you don't exactly love them while in office, you still have a lot of respect for them when they are gone. It's a really hard job that takes a special person to do.
Kyle Clinton did get put on scholarship too
Just send your kids to private schools then
Imagine that scenario. JT leads us to a national title does Miller redshirt and then takeover the team from a young title winner?
Sweat only to open up the DMV pipeline. DMV area has way more talent than AZ. Like both players though.
Wow what a deal.
It's never too late
That's probably what got her the job.
That is is right, the broadcaster always paid for it before.
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.
Maybe because they cry the most?
Guess I'll watch some more NBA games now
Any convention bringing 1000s of people is good for the city. Hope the DNC has theirs in Columbus.
At least it's not Detroit!
