How would we react if one of our players wanted to transfer to Clempsen? This is approaching NFL-type free agency. Will compensation eventually be required between teams?How about this guy? Is the 404 a possibility for this cat or do you think closer to his home?
Sadly, this is how it is now. You take the good with the bad. You take one of mine, I'll take one of yours.
Sounds like somebody’s still got his red panties in a bunch over Fields jumping ship.
That's a ridiculous article. Cunningham's a hack. There's good arguments on both sides, and that level of snark is totally unprofessional.
Fact is, most S/As will not transfer from where they are. If it comes to that we have a problem. So i have no problem with this going on.

But I am getting tired of the whining about S/As making all this money (and face it, we are talking football here) for the school and not getting their fair share back. Bullcrap.
Going to college is not suppose to be, in and of itself, a money making proposition. The scumbag politicians declared that all the sports programs (whether wanted by the schools or not) have to be funded at a certain level. WHERE did the money come from? Ticket sales for those sports? B.S.
Of course playing football is hard work - duh. But that doesn't mean they should make money during college to do it. That is why they got a ship.
If a kid wants to make money during their college years, pay their own way and take their time while working.
Hell, our grandsons friend said screw college and became a damn welder. He makes a boatload of money.
Colleges that have huge tons of cash are due to donations mainly.
Let football keep ALL the money it generates THEN we can talk about paying players more. But they are not entitled to make a profit beyond their education while a 19 year old S/A.
The writer is a typical, whining nutcase in that regard.
I'm with you in spirit, man. Socialism is ruining everything.Title 9 is really the reason coaches salaries started rising, when coaches realized how important the revenue from CFB was to athletic depts., they could start demanding salaries.
"Title 9 is really the reason coaches salaries started rising, when coaches realized how important the revenue from CFB was to athletic depts., they could start demanding salaries. It has since taken on a life of it's own. "I'm with you in spirit, man. Socialism is ruining everything.
But I don't think Title IX is responsible for college coaches' salary inflation. That's due to the fact that the ST football forum has garnered 1.2 million posts in its existence, and the GT other sports forum has generated 94k posts in its existence. That's why football coaches get paid a ton of money.
Players don't "deserve" to be paid?!? There's many convincing enough cases against paying players, but that's a ludicrous statement.Players do not deserve to be paid. Players should be able to transfer with immediate eligibility if there is a coaching change. Recruits who have signed a LOI should be released if there is a coaching change. If a player transfers after red shirting and they have to sit out another year, the player should receive a sixth year of eligibility.
