It looks too much like a publicity stunt. Check the cash. Make sure it's not OBJ dollars. Those guys might be declaring for the draft and that's what the pay thing is all about or.... they are just running a game on the media. For what? Who knows, who cares.
There is clearly a distinct stratification in College Football today.
read the N.Y. Times article over the weekend on how Clemson rose under Swinney. It’s an outrageously ballsy explosion of the revenue gained via TV and big big donors. About 6 schools have separated. UConn - and UCF & Temple & Tulane - aren’t only the same pool. And we are finding out the PAC 12 is also lagging.
for the youth amongst us ... this wasn’t the world in 1995.
What does this say for UConn? Money wise - it’s indisputable that we took a huge money hit with the Diaco escapade.
LSU people are pissed at OBJ and he will likely be excluded from sidelines and whatnot in the future. That said, the players remaining at LSU will likely just have to give the money back, but Jefferson is going to the NFL anyway so eligibility is not an issue. OBJ is an ass for making stories about himself in the middle of this team's greatest moment.
