Here is the Top 25 AP Poll for the 2011 Pre-season and we have to ask the question, with all the nonsense that has been happening at Miami, should the college football players be paid??? YES! The college athletes should be paid…..I know they are getting their education, room and board, books, food and other perks, but what would be wrong with paying all the football players, say $100.00 to $150.00 a week in spending money….They are spending an awful lot of their time working for, and making money for, the schools and for the NCAA……Pay the football and basketball players, say 100 or 150 dollars a week…..These are your revenue sports and these are the kids/sports that are paying the bills for the athletic programs at almost all of your major universities…..
Let’s go with that 150-100 dollar number and let’s see and hear what you have to say about it…..Let’s also take a look at the AP Pre-Season Top 25 College Football Poll…(Remember, PAY the PLAYERS!)
*****Eight teams from the SEC with Alabama, LSU, South Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi State, Florida, Auburn…..(Two ACC teams in there, with Florida State and Virginia Tech)….*****
