The problem with paying these kids to play football in college is that it is never going to be enough. They already get a free education, plus close to $1,000 a month, with free food. If you pay them, they will still want more and still take money from boosters. That kid who couldn't afford a tv so he had to watch it in the union, probably blew all his money on Jordans or gambling. If he really wanted a tv, he could have gotten himself a tv.
When people grow up and don't have money, their first taste is like a drug. They want more and more and more. Pretty soon, it is all about the money and they put making money over anything else.
I am a HS football coach and we have 3 guys playing in the B1G and 6 in the MAC from our last 2 graduating classes. They come back and visit, or I go visit them frequently. Its amazing how the kids who never had money are so focused on money. A kid I coached is at MSU, all he talks about is all the free stuff they get and how all the players make money off it. I went and visited our kids at Kent State, they told me story after story about how all the kids on the team lose all their money gambling. One player gambled his entire meal card for the semester and lost it the first day of classes.
It doesn't matter what we give them or what they truly deserve, it will never be enough, players will cheat, players will steal, booster will pay them, and we will be facing the same issues.
And for the record, I do feel that players should be paid, but there needs to be a system/scale that pays the bigtime players more, and it must be realitively equal throughout.

It was easy to see why Brady is so successful in recruiting. He is a great speaker and speaks from the heart. I would have a hard time believing that anyone would not want their son to play for this man.
Also, Kovacs was hilarious, he had a ton of one-liners ripping on Brady.

Hopefully they end up a 2 or 3, gives them an extra game before playing the 1, although it doesn't seem like there is much differences between the top 15-20 teams this year.

With Hoke coaching the DT and Mattison having his hand in on a little of everything, I'm sure he just wanted the opportunity to coach more. He is also going to be the Recruiting Co-Coordinator at OU. Just a better fit for him personally.
I don't see how they could hire anything but a D-Line coach. You can't have your HC being the only D-Line coach. He has too much other stuff to worry about.
