1) Couple of things. You guys who say the Athletic programs don't make a profit..that may be true but there is a difference between athletic programs and football programs! The football programs make enough profits to supplement the olympic sports. There is difference between athletic programs and football programs.

2) If you can pay regular kids to be in commercials then athletes of all ages should be allowed to make money of their likeness. A kid can make money if they are in a gatorade commercial but not if they are also an athlete? Makes no sense.

3) Athletes get ruled ineligible for selling water bottles online and making their own youtube videos...BS

OK, Since I have a few minutes to kill, here we go. Follow the LOGIC, LAW and common sense...

1. If you take all the money from "Revenue Sports" like football for most and basketball for some schools (baseball often loses money) and give all or even half or even some of it away to the players then the "Non-Revenue Sports" would die. There is this little problem of a Federal Law called Title IX would have NONE of that. (READ the LAW even though I know you have no real knowledge or respect for it).

Overview of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972

On June 23, 1972, the President signed Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. §1681 et seq., into law. Title IX is a comprehensive federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. The principal objective of Title IX is to avoid the use of federal money to support sex discrimination in education programs and to provide individual citizens effective protection against those practices. Title IX applies, with a few specific exceptions, to all aspects of federally funded education programs or activities. In addition to traditional educational institutions such as colleges, universities, and elementary and secondary schools, Title IX also applies to any education or training program operated by a recipient of federal financial assistance. The Department of Education has issued regulations on the requirements of Title IX, 34 C.F.R. § 106.1et seq. The Title IX common rule published on August 30, 2000 covers education program providers/recipients that are funded by other federal agencies.

2. Kids in commercials can make money because they did not sign a scholarship (Value of $250,000-$400,000 and BTW we call that "getting paid") to attend a NCAA sanctioned university and abide by it laws and requirements and restrictions. Athletes who VOLUNTARILY sign a scholarship to attend a NCAA sanctioned university AGREE in writing to the terms and conditions to which YOU oppose but THEY do not.

In fact we have stated over and over again that according to YOU "the horrible conditions that these atheltes have to suffer through" are not only contracts voluntarily entered into by the athlete (Legal terms) but that if they refused there are at least 100,000 oter athletes denied these opportunities that would JUMP on the offer if given (real life facts).

3. See above. The athletes VOLUNTARILY agreed to the terms of the scholarship and the educational institution and the NCAA. They do so because of the chance to earn MILLIONS in the NFL, NBA and MLB, and maybe even the NHL, PGA, MLS or other.

No other opportunity in the world offers amature athletes an opportunity that can compare to the FREE RIDE college scholarship with housing, tutors, meals, medical care and coaching to get a college education and a degree while playing a sport you love for a potential LOTTERY winning draft into the BIG leagues.

Most high school athletes dream of that opportunity and some would literally die for it. You dismiss it as a form of slavery. Who would dream of or die for the chance to be a slave as you define it?

In sumary, your LOGIC fails you and the LAW evades you. Try again and please use logic, the law and common sense.

Was on a plane and watching the playoffs. Just to be clear that is the reason you don't want to see them get paid?

1) Easy problem to solve. Why take it from the other sports when you can take it from the coaches? Larry Fedora was the 50th highest paid coach of an amateur league and made 2.5 million dollars a year in salary alone. Butthey complain about profitibilaty? You talk about how many players would love the opportunity to play college well how many coaches in other amateur ranks eg high school would love to make a quarter of that to coach a kids game? Once again the 50th highest paid coach made 2.5 million a year. Taking 1/4 of that and spreading it amongst the players is an extra 6-7k a year spending noney for each player. If you don't want to give it to them let them make money off their own likenesses or even part time jobs.

2) You keep throwing out 250-400k. However most schools don't cost that much. UCF is 100k for all 4 years and that is tuition, room and board, all expenses. Plus they don't get the full academic experience because they have to put so much time into a sport. It's like having a full-time job while going to school.

3)Most athletes voluntarily enter into those deals because they have to if they want to get to those leagues. Especially the NFL. For years the NBA didn't require it and still they only require 1 year.

The law doesn't fail me. Nothing I said would break a law. It would change the rules. You keep saying there are 100,000 other athletes. Well there are probably 50,000 other coaches who would leap at taking a 4th of what these guys get and they would be better than Larry Coker.

You just are personally against putting the players on better footing and increasing their piece of the pie. I am personally for seeing them getting a piece of the pie. I am for the players, you are for the system. Doesn't make you a bad guy we are just pulling for different sides here.

Once again. It wouldn't bother me as much if the players didn't get punished for getting money, whille the coaches and admins are raking it in.

You keep telling me to use common sense. Do you think the system we have is common sense? I think it's crazy. It's just what we are use to.

Anyway I have vented enough on the topic. Thanks for the arena to allow me to do that.

I can't wait for the season to start so I can watch the players...I mean watch the suits hanging out in skyboxes

65 schools $3 BILLION in annual revenues.

14 SEC HC made a combined $62 MILLION last year.

Iowa pays it STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING COACH $725,000 a year.

The ATHLETIC DIRECTOR at Ohio State made $20,000,000 in 2017.


Wake up, realize it's not 1977 anymore and try to see how unfair it is that Urban Meyer and Ohio State's AD made $30 million in one year and Joey Bosa would have been thrown off the team and called dirty if he sold his game jersey to a memorabilia dealer for $300.

Hillview...interesting response and use of words. I will respond later today. Appreciate your thoughts on this.

solarcane

Go,
take a second and add up every player that was taken in this years drafts salary, signing bonus,endorsement contracts.
Then consider the fact they are about 21 years old.
You seem to fixate on the 3 years of their entire lives that they had to give something to get a ton in return.

I think anyone in sports or entertainment that gets a a paycheck is overpaid.

I don't think waiting 3 years to make more money than you are worth is really as big a deal as you do.

As far as owners,coaches, strength trainers go, if Manny pulls off an ACC championship or NC everyone of us will say "Pay the man."

Granddaughter National player of the week runner up second time this season not bad for a sophomore

* Addison Blair, a sophomore first baseman/outfielder at South Caldwell high in Hudson, North Carolina, had a big week last week in Rounds 3 & 4 of the North Carolina 4A state playoffs. She helped her team advance to the Regionals for the second year in a row as she hit .800 (4-for-5) with six RBIs and a 1.800 slugging percentage and 2.65 OPS. Over her last four games she’s hit four home runs with 12 RBIs.

Posted by: solarcane | May 21, 2019 at 10:55 AM

Only a minuscule percentage of kids make it to the show.

And I’m not asking them to make a ton.

At 85 kids per football roster and 12 in basketball the 14 SEC teams have about 1300 kids. With at most 300 graduating every year, giving a four year athlete $25,000 at graduation with a matching amount to be divided among the remaining student athletes the total cost is about $2 million per school per year.

Think about that. It’s nothing. Pocket change for these schools.

And what happens when females feel that they should get paid for their sports? And the other sports follow suit? What then? Cut Professor's salaries?

Women can get paid. At least let them make money of their likeness. There have been numerous women college athletes who should have been allowed to make money of their likeness. Specifically thinking women's bball. Think of any womens college athlete espn ever does a feature on. Espn will make money off that ad. There will be someone who will pay if they are good enough 🤷🏾‍♂️

No Go Canes you are the one talking out of your arse my friend. U only talk football and basketball and now you want to mention only revenue without mentioning that most of those Big 10 Schools have like 33 different sports teams. Did you figure out how much their combined expenses are or nah. Now come back with a full picture or sit that arse down somewhere.

solarcane

Go
we don't go to games to see the third string guys play.
The scout team doesn't pack the stands.
The third team holder should get the same paycheck Brevin J. or DJ gets??

So to me paying guys that are basically blocking dummies more than a scholarship is pretty ridiculous.

I respect you and Hill's
position on salaries, but I think both of you are more outraged over coach's salaries than players getting a cut.

If you both argued for across the board salary caps on top 25 team coaching staffs you would escape Soup,OGV,and T Sully's wrath.

Sarasota 'cane

Bitcoin? Just spit ballin at this point...

Go Canes!!

Here’s a full picture for you.

Despite an explosion of expenses on new facilities, insane coaching salaries and all the book cooking possible, in 2016 just about every Power 5 team was operating in the black.

That’s BEFORE the recent revenue explosion like the example I just gave where the Big 10’s income went up $325 million, nearly doubling, in the last 24 months.

Posted by: solarcane | May 21, 2019 at 05:09 PM

Actually I love when people make a lot of money. I have no problem with with. I started reading business perodicals at age 12. My thing is the athletes are people too. It think the system is dishonest when it cries that it's not profitable to pay the players but they can afford to pay other's millions. It takes us for fools or at least being uncapable or unwilling to ask probing questions.

I also said if these schools and the NCAA don't want to pay them then don't prevent them from making side income. Whether it be from licensing or other ventures. A kid got in trouble for making instructional kicking videos because he's a kicker on a team. A track guy got in trouble for selling water bottles online, which he was doing since highschool. A kid gets kicked off a team because he got a rental car discount. None of those things involve taking money from the "unprofitable" schools or "non-profit" NCAA. It's an easy to remove rule that is incredibly unfair based on how much money is in the system. In my opinion, it's Un-American, anti-capitalism and individual rights. These student-athletes are people.

If I am on an academic scholarship, or a band scholarship, I am not prevented from having additional income. It's not necessary. I think the kids should and can be paid by the school and the NCAA. However if they don't want to then don't stop them from making their own money and punish them bevause of if it. If coaches can make salary but also have endorsements, athletes can have scholarships and endorsements/sponsors in a way that is above board

HillviewCane

A guy like Dabo having the audacity to say he, he of all people would be dissapointed if the players get paid? There are so many ways I could describe the hypocrisy...but it's a family blog :-)

Coaches have advocated adjusting the system before though to give the players a share. Guys like Spurrier in the past

HillviewCane

At least Josh Rosen and Chris Simms agree with me https://bleacherreport.com/articles/2787044-josh-rosen-nfl-cardinals-power-50

HillviewCane

Bill Self also says the system should changed to do more for the players and Mike Krzyzewski said.

“I’d like for them to take a look at what happens before you get them to make sure that the kid are afforded the opportunity to max out — like anyone else in our country — what talent will give you.”

Let them max out like anyone else in our country...I agree

Posted by: solarcane | May 21, 2019 at 05:09 PM

This is true.

If there can be a Title IX Federal Law against discriminating against women's sports and sharing revenue and opportunity I would support a Federal Law saying that any school receiving Federal Funding (which would mean all) would have a salary cap on college coaches salaries so that more money can be spent on academics or other non-revenue sports and facilities, training, etc.

To me this is also especially true at State run/funded schools. But if one State sets a salary cap and another does not then you would have inequity and a tip in the balance of power.

When the football coach makes 10 times what the president of the University makes something is not quite right? The spending is out of control.

I am happy IF some schools are making money from athletics but that revenue should be shared with the University on the academic side to build new educational facilities, hire more or better professors, fund research and improve technology other equally productive and beneficial activities that Universities are supposed to be about in the first place.

Go Canes!!

Posted by: 86Cane | May 22, 2019 at 08:29 AM

I would have no issues with this either. The money has simply gotten too big.

Make schools give more back to the academic side of the univerisity. Give the athletes a graduation bonus to help them get a head start after college. Expand athletic scholarships for baseball and other sports within the university. Force athletic departments to provide non-atheltic kids of need with the same opportunties athletes get.

But this system is absurd and obscene. How can anyone justify a S&C coach making $750,000. Or a nead coach making $10,000,000 while his AD pulls in another $20,000,000.

It's plain immoral.

To Me those that went to that Bleep Show in New York got a even worse deal than us in Texas SMH. At least in Texas the weather was nice and a Fun Time was had minus the Game. In New York it was Cold and Playing Outdoors in a Baseball Stadium and our team played lifeless the whole Game. And what made it so bad was the whole team from Coaches to players hyped the whole season up for them to totally lay an egg pissed us off and yea I and others are taking a wait and see approach.

Glad you Miss the Orange Bowl Hillview because I sure as hell don't. That's the beauty of life a variety of opinions. Go Canes!

Gin & Tonic

Terrance, it's all nostalgia.

Missing the Orange Bowl is like missing the piece of crap Corolla that was your first car. It smelled funny and had rust all over it.

But the fun times I had in it.

It's the memories, those great nights with great friends that people remember.

Terrance Sullivan

Gin and Tonic I get that completely but I got to where I hated going to the Orange Bowl. I loved it in the 80's. Like it in the 90's, Was okay with it in early 00's, Hated it by mid 00's. Was Glad to move.Had they actually took care of the Old Lady and not let it go to the crapper I most likely would have a different viewpoint. But like anything in life If you want to keep someone you have to try to keep yourself up as well and keep it worthwile. Soupster, KY, Kenny, Native, Raize, and others have talked about if you are at a hotel or restaurant, or business, etc, and they become slack on their end at some point you will get tired of the bs and want something better. That's my take on the OB. Great for its time but time had passed and I was happy to move on. Sorry for the long post.

I laid many a concrete block on Joe Rock stadium, and the entire time it felt just like I was laying blocks on every other building I ever worked on.

Posted by: HillviewCane | May 21, 2019 at 01:18 AM

OK, here we go...

1. Do not confuse or conflate issues: The point we were debating is whether players should be paid, NOT whether coaches are paid too much. Don't link or confuse the two or make one fact dependent on the other. If you feel players should be paid it should stand on it's own merits not whether coaches are paid too much.

As already indicated, I think most of us agree that coaches are overpaid and some limits (Federal) should be imposed if institutions receive Federal subsidies (they all do).

2. Don't get bogged down in the details: Numbers and names are not relevant, the facts and the debating points are what is important. If it is $100k on the low end and $300k on the high end just settle for an average of $200k. But even that number is irrelevant, payers ARE getting paid, that is my point.

2B) I had a full time job while going to school and was still on the Dean's list at UM for three years with a 3.83 average before I got lazy in my Senior year. Ended at 3.75. No excuses.

3) Nobody is suffering. You think so, but it is not the case. Many players are leaving abject poverty to complete luxury. Stop your whining.

3B) The Law does fail you. See Title IX and get educated.

4. We have already been over this. Don't do this in a debate. Not fair play.

5. Do not use the word "personally" to make your point. You are trying to shame and blame and appear morally superior when you do this. As in you as a "person" are better than me as a "person". Or that your views are better than mine. That is not fair play. The debate on the issues or facts have nothing to do with you or me as a person.

Thank you.

One of my fondness memories of the Orange Bowl was a buddy of mine going to the bathroom and then get beers at halftime and not making it back until the 4th quarter because as he said it "had to go through the the depths of hell to find a bathroom". and had gotten lost

TonyCane

I remember my first game in 1990 (vs FSU) as a freshman. As I marveled at the alternative, obscenity laden mock war chant, an older fan dutiful told me that things were not as they had been. If this had been the 80s, when an opposing player got injured the fans would supposedly curse at them for stopping the game flow and would yell obscenities until they were “dragged off the field.” I remember thinking that the 80s Orange Bowl must have been like a Roman gladiator event.

TonyCane

On the coaches salary issue...I’ve said it before but all it will take is one prominent politician who combines the student debt issue with CTE trauma for players to kick off a movement to curtail this. Or even to get schools to ultimately drop football. I can easily see this question being brought up in one of the upcoming debates.

I loved the OB. It was "ours"! But remember trying to use the bathroom when the old girl was sold out? The worst!! If you left your seat at the end of the first half to go to the bathroom you most likely didn't return to your seat until 5 minutes into the 3rd quarter!!

My first OB experience was Dolphins and Cowboys on a Monday night, Cowboys and Danny white scored with a minute left then Marino marched down the field and Broke or hearts.
Before the game I walked into the old Bowl Bar with my Cowboy gear on and as soon as I came through the door this huge Dolfan on the other side of the bar roared "THERE'S ONE" and I thought oh sh!t but he wound up buying me a drink while he ragged my ass.

I had the pleasure of being in the Orange Bowl in 1966 for the Dolphens first ever game when Joe Auer ran the opening kich off bach 95 yds for a TD. Joe Auer played for Coral Gables High Scool

Joe Auer passed away in Winter Park Fla.on
March 11 2019 on of the greatest running backs in the history of Miami high school football.
May he rest in pesce

Go Canes!!

Go,
U would think having started for 3 years that Pinkney would be more than an honorable mention All ACC. He has played well but at worst he should be at least All ACC 2ND team.
