I don't understand y everyone is making a big deal over Arian Foster saying he got money while he was in college. News flash We all did.
Jehuu Caulcrick admits that he and his teammates took money while at MSU

Ugh. On the one hand, there's some serious Sparty-Freude here.
On the other, there are times I am wary to jump on the graves of other programs, because you never know what dirt might come out of your own. All it takes is one guy...
George Campbell and Jabril Peppers are probably expecting more than just scholarship money.
Not sure how you make that jump
According to RCMB he is referring to the food/clothing stipends that athletes get.
In their defense, only one of them actually said that. The rest are more realistic.
This will definitely lead to some serious repercussions
I fully expect the NCAA go come down HARD on MSU. I'm talking wins taken off the books, B1G championship banners removed, rose bowl appearances vaca- yeah, I can't even finish this joke.
only if there was any extra stretching.
Yeah, I have no idea how deep this stuff is in college sports. Every team may very well do it but it takes some kind of stupid person to tweet that.
if he was actually referring to the completely NCAA-legal stipend money he got, and he is too stupid to realize the difference between illegal funds and what he got. that would be classic STAEE
...Foster's original comments didn't seem too clear on that distinction either. He made it sound like he would have been starving to death on zero cash.
Stanley McClover flat out admitted to Real Sports with Bryant Gumble in 2011 that he accepted a cash payment from an MSU booster during a recruiting visit, and the NCAA did nothing. Don't expect anything to come of this either. MSU is too small of a program for the NCAA or the national press to waste their time with.
key word: "cash"
Notoriously hard to track and therefore prove.
>>MSU is too small of a program for the NCAA or the national press to waste their time with.
That is exactly why the NCAA might do something.
They would never voluntarily do something to a program that matters (financially).
Which is kinda like saying that the NCAA doesn't care if a program pays for players...
... as long as the NCAA gets its share of cash, too.
MSU has boosters? Like, people who care enough to pay players with their own money?
who this guy is... is it outside or inside the NCAA statute of limitations?
The only thing I remember about Jehu Caulcrick was Valenti's rant: "Jehu Caulcrick was a bowling ball! Notre Dame didn't want any part of him! Yet Javon Ringer saw all the carries in the second half! EXPLAIN IT!"
How long ago did he graduate? Does the statute of limitations apply? I see a trend coming of former players admitting to benefits after the statutes of limitations pass.
Well the msu collapse vs nd was in 2006 ao at least 7 years ago.
While I was there with the recruits for that game some drunken Sparty students threatened to kick the shit out of us. They really know how to entertain their guests.
Really don't think we can count on RCMB to parse this statement for us. They aren't exactly a font of credibility.
Caulcrick was a very good running back.
He would be getting carries for Michigan if he was here right now.
Yeah right. Fitz ran for a buck tonight bro.
Caulcrick ran for 4.5 ypc and 39 TDs over his four years.
I hate MSU too, but let's not pretend Caulcrick was some obscure useless weirdo.
Thomas Rawls > Jay who?
I believe his last season was 2007.
Thank you Jehuu. Now I can listen to some State schadenfreude on the radio during the commute this week instead of Michigan panic talk.
I guess I belong in a tree.
WHAT IF I AM
handshakes your nuts
Nobody handshakes my nuts.
Okay, this was a good one. I'm sad I didn't see it first.
But didn't put it all together. Bravo. Needed that laugh.
I do not want anyone to handshake my nuts. Sounds uncomfortable
embezzelment scandal at an MSU booster club a couple years, money missing as in thousands of dollars. Kind of got swept under the rug, I'm sure this was the source.
I personally do not believe a single D1 program is clean with regards to giving extra benefits to athletes. Too many nice cars, nice clothes, nice gagets.
They couldn't account for 50/50 raffle funds. There has been a lot of smoke with that program, but when it comes down to it...nobody cares enough about MSU to do anything about it.
I did not take any money while in college.
I didn't either and that's why I left early to pursue a job in the auto industry
I always just assumed everyone who lives in East Lansing was getting some sort of extra benefit to voluntarily live there.
Do they help with student loan payments?
Like a "hardship stipend" that state department staffers get when they're posted in war zones?
because they're sure not buying much on the recruiting trail
he's ever done in his life i bet. #yesI'mbeingajudgmentaldick
Oh it's okay he totally got hacked, totally, definitely...
I think it's a staged hack. Everyone says their twitter got hacked, but is anybodies twitter every really hacked? If they are, it's posting viruses. Not supposed NCAA infractions
