I understand the conundrum on this with many. But, I still see tuition, room, board (specialty chefs, training tables with complete nutrition programs), tutors at no charge and always available, all the bling in the workout areas, as a big part of the equation. Its about 30k a year expense to a state school? Hell even back when I went, I had to work 2 jobs at night and weekends, plus summers in AK to get myself through financially. I can see giving the players 1k a month spending money, while at school and in decent academic standing, plus all the other perks they get, but past that...you've lost me. Hell, they lost me when coach salaries went past 3-million about 12 years ago on that side. Still funner to watch than NFL in my opinion.Reading things like this makes it hard to understand how the players can't negotiate their compensation.
