Way to go Auburn! These athletes should be getting paid and the real crime is that its a violation in the first place! I would rather see Auburn cut every non-revenue sport (Title IX, be damned! And, yes that includes T&F) and pay the players than continue the current system. These kids can't even transfer within conference without losing a year of eligibility when coaches can do it at will. (different conference/sport, but FGCU coach bolted for USC after his Sweet 16 appearance and most of the squad were Freshman and Sophomores. Every player on that team should be free to transfer elsewhere.) And, when the penalties come down who do they affect? Yup, the kids who usually had nothing to do with it. All that just because you dared to accept an athletic scholarship? It's not right. I want schools to be able to offer recruits things that would make Eric Dickerson say, "Damn! He got what?" (In ESPN 30 for 30, Eric Dickerson was reported to have "broken the bank". Over 30 years later and he still hasn't told what SMU did for him. And, he got to keep the Camaro that A&M gave him).
