Why post this here? Well it's because many of the players who do not make it to the NFL from the big-time college programs end up there trying to make it in the CFL anyway.
And Terrell Pryor now after Cam Newton after the Fiesta Bowl siphoning scandal, and that's all from just last season? Student athletes? :roll:
Any wonder why the "entitlement mentality" of such players will before too long become the "excess mentality" when they hit the NFL?
This is all the more reason to look for a CFL game whenever they play on Saturday instead of this staged crap down here.
Seriously big-time college football any more is just a cheap minor league system for the NFL with the coverage of it all about the hype machine for the NFL (prospecting for the combine and the draft), Nike (often teams both with Nike uniforms are picked to play in bowl games against each other unless for other reasons it cannot happen), and worst of all ESPN that now dominates the US TV coverage more than ever (and now has its own alliance and channel with the University of Texas).
And folks want to blame the players for making something extra as they have for decades via various privileges anyway? :roll:
The only thing that keeps attendance up even after this hype and corruption is that there is nothing else to do on any given weekend in too many of these big college towns for the locals off campus.
Big college football is already pro ball whether or not the media or NCAA acknowledge it.
On the other hand more of these scandals will come out because the athletes are not making anywhere near the same percentage in perks, compared their past predecessors, of the now record sums earned from them with all sales and sponsorships considered.
