  1. This^^ It sounded like there may be some confusion on what will be allowed. Some of these schools already putting out marketing releases may be jumping the gun. With all the ambiguity they may be breaking the rules or bylaws. Rules that no one seems to know exactly what they are yet.
  2. I actually think athletes are rated WAY above most other "classes" of citizens. I think the differences in salary between athletes and entertainers vs life saving and protecting are way too far apart. I think athletes should get paid and paid well, but It seems society has rated athletes/actors etc. above teachers responders, police, military. $40,000,000.00+ contract for an entertainer!
  3. Bless your little heart. There you go again! Warping what you read. I didn't ever say anything close to not deserving to have school paid for. Talent is not deserving of ridiculous amounts of money paid by the pro's. Until you learn to comprehend what is written and not warp it into your perception, I am done. Have a good day, sir.

  5. I will reply to this with cole256 logic. You are the only one that thinks there is some magic money machine that covers all the losses year after year at the schools that operate at a loss.
  6. According to the NCAA, among the 65 autonomy schools in Division I, only 25 recorded a positive net generated revenue in 2019. I am not going to search for a bunch of links, here is the first one to pop up on google though. https://www.bestcolleges.com/blog/do-college-sports-make-money/#:~:text=According to the NCAA%2C among,net generated revenue in 2019.
  7. ok $32,000. Still about HALF of a football scholly to Auburn per year.
  8. It is not an extreme opinion or comparison. . It is pointing out the extreme differences between pay, responsibility and risk of the two jobs. You misread posts. Warp it into what fits your opinion . Post inflammatory rhetoric as if you are defending yourself from some bizarre extremity. And attack the poster. When you say thinks like "You turn You need to get off the athlete is a second rate citizen compared to others". When I said noting of the sort. Nothing that alludes to that. You are obviously taking what you read and trying to paint others into an extreme
  9. Probably. I don't know. I do not think it would cover the full cost of attending Auburn though. Side note: I feel I need to mention again that I am not mad at the athlete. I would be fighting for the money if I was in their situation. It is a society issue based on screwed up priorities.
  10. I did not have the honor of serving. I have physical issues that kept me out. I come from a military family. Thank YOU for serving.
  11. Once again your reading lack of reading comprehension is comes through. "highest ranking official" id different than highest paid enlisted man. gets about $21,000) Base pay for an enlisted service member in their first six months comes out to less than $20,000 per year. But troops earn increases as they advance in rank and gain experience. The highest ranking enlisted Marine, Sgt. Maj of the Marine Corps Ronald Green, makes over $90,000 a year in base pay alone. That is not an extreme. That is the fact.
  12. Only a few dozen school's have athletic departments that Make money. Most are running in the red and are sucking money from the school. 90% of the schools would be better off.
  13. The VERY HIGHEST enlisted marine, $90,000. The rest make much less. Not exactly living the high life for a family of 3. To send their kid to Auburn it would cost the HIGHEST PAID enlisted marine %66 of their yearly salary. If we are including housing and food and other pay for the military, then you have to for the Scholarship athlete also. Oh sheeesh, you decide to bring in another dynamic with race, which is a totally different issue.
  14. You read your bizarre interpretation of posts and comment with extremities trying to use straw man arguments. What makes you think I think athletes are second hand citizens? You need to get off using inflammatory rhetoric, and pay closer attention to what you read.
  15. OK.... The highest ranking enlisted Marine, Sgt. Maj of the Marine Corps Ronald Green, makes over $90,000 a year in base pay. We have 80 college football players getting a $60,000 scholly, stipends, cloths . NOT INCLUDING NIL, the HIGHEST paid enlisted marine only makes about $30,000 more.
