This article is about the Reggie Bush and NC football scandals. It basically says that it's not agents that are breaking the most rules, it's sports marketers who operate in a gray area. There were two bits that stuck out to me.
These individuals are the source of much of the corruption in college football today, and are at the center of NCAA investigations underway at schools such as North Carolina and Georgia, as well as probes at other schools that are expected to be made public in the coming weeks.
Earlier this year, Michigan football players and aspiring pros Brandon Graham and Brandon Minorasked two fellow students they trusted -- Daniel Stillman and Jordan Klein -- to help them pick an agent. Less than a year later, Stillman and Klein have opened Compass Management Services, which manages the financial needs of those two NFL players and hopes to add others.
Stillman said concern for athletes being taken advantage of financially led him to start Compass Management Services. His intentions seem pure, but the fact remains that less than a year ago he was a college student, and now he is managing two NFL players' money.
I'm hoping Graham and Minor didn't contact these guys before they left school and that they stay away from our current players!
