The only way to effectively pay players is for the NCAA to collect the funds at the top, cut SA funds off the top, then distribute to the schools. Conferences won't allow that. Otherwise, forcing the schools to pay will shift the talent to a few schools (either you'll have Texas, Michigan, Alabama, etc. paying more or you'll have to set the payment at a level that bankrupts SBC teams while barely scratching SEC, thus throwing the amenities and facilities out of wack).Well written.
If its $10 Million or more for Saban, IMO, the call
to start paying S-A's will get REAL loud.
If you really want to take payment out of this, eliminate the 3-year requirement for the NFL.
Austin traffic isn't bad if you live where Saban would. Also, tons of hot women, great music, great food, almost exclusive access to some of the top recruits in the world, you can make an argument about academics (unlike Ugag or Bama), and you don't have to live in Alabama.Austin quality of life: traffic of big city without the amenities, ecolibtards everywhere, downtown gets boring after ten trips, hot as hell summers. And, oh yeah, UT fans - which are as bad as UGAg fans.
