There you go.
He doesn't have to be lying. He could say it without seriously considering or knowing what he would do if the option to get a few thousand dollars vs a few millions dollars was placed before him.

How can one lie about a hypothetical situation that has not chance of occurring?


The other thing about the NFL rookie contract is that it is a reason why many juniors leave for the NFL. The thinking is that since the rookie contract isn't that good (compared with other contracts and other years), the player is better suited to get the clock started so that they can clean up on their second contract after the first 4 years are up.

I would hope that when colleges do begin paying players (legitimately) it is paid for out of booster funds or other "self generated" funds belonging to the athletic dept. The academic/taxpayer funded side should not be affected by this.

But, if schools are running in the red as some are now doing, where does that cash come from?

Gotta give props to him for still wearing gamecock gear. One of the few players of ours I've seen that still wears it so much after leaving school.

He could've done what Greg Anthony did at UNLV. Start his own brand and give up his scholly and play as a walk-on. At least I think that is what he did and it was NCAA legal.

Maybe it's because he's not on an NFL team yet? I'm just glad he didn't joke around about the cash he/every big time player received during college.

So it's not just the players anymore it's the players' families too now? This is not the NFL. It's not a pro league. This is a charity looking for volunteers to help raise funds to improve education. Why is this so hard for people to understand? If you don't want to participate, that is perfectly okay, we'll find other volunteers. If you really want to be paid, go off and do your own fundraising.

Yeah, they are actually talking like they want to be plaid like pro football players. Well, not their not pro football players. The NCAA doesn't want any pro players. The NCAA is not trying to run a pro league. They're trying to help people get an education.

I never looked at it that way. It makes tons of sense now why players are leaving early more often even with the rookie cap. The rookie cap means players can only aspire to playing another season and maybe making another $1 million instead of the gigantic contracts they used to could aspire to.

Is it wrong that the first thing I thought when I heard that "Clowney would have stayed if he had been paid." was "South Carolina, you're doing it wrong?" lol

I don't think any NCAA sport participants should get paid for participating in sports of any kind. If they have their sights set on the NFL then they need to play consistently good football during college and get drafted. That's where the reward is.

I think we need to part with Clowney amicably. He played great for us for at least 2 years and was well above average last year. Let's leave well enough alone. I wish him well as a pro and look forward to those that will play for us next year. For the record, I think they do get paid, free food and board, plus free access to facilities and a great education if they want it.
