    Re: Big Bucks for Hostesses

    She was receiving $200-$900 every bi-weekly pay period for working a student job. What is so crazy about that?

    Depending on her hours worked, I would say she was getting anywhere from $12 to $20 dollars per hour. Not exactly unheard of.

    Yeah...I'd love to see Auburn go down, but this really is much about nothing.

    Re: Big Bucks for Hostesses

    I thought students couldn't work more than 20 hours a week for the unversity when school is in session or is that an ISU rule. If that is the case he is making quite a bit for a student. I bet she doesn't report her tips either.

    $20 dollars an hour for a college student working a part time job??? Yeah, that's unheard of...

    We can try to argue this into a real controversy, but it doesn't look like there's much there.

    Re: Big Bucks for Hostesses

    I'm very uneasy about the article making an in-explicit accusation that these girls are paid to do something of a sexual nature.

    FYI Iowa State has female hosts for recruits too.

    I'm sure Auburn is violating rules in a whole lot of ways, but to imply these women are doing anything is borderline libel (which is probably why it isn't stated directly just implied).

    Yeah, they made that accusation if you made that up on your own. They never implied anything like that.

    they certainly intended the reader to assume that there was something underhanded going on, otherwise what's the point of the article? It's shoddy tabloid journalism.

    I thought it had more to do with potentially funnelling money/gifts to players through the hostesses. Anything that involves Trooper Taylor is bound to be suspicious or just downright dirty.

    I guess 'in-explicit' accusation doesn't mean to you what it means to me. The whole article is implying it. If there is nothing wrong with what is occurring why write the article? If it isn't an assertion that it's something of a sexual nature why call attention to the female to male ratio on the host staff and the pay discrepancy. If they aren't implying what I think they are in the article, what exactly is the article about?

    Possibly, that's not how I read it. If that were the case I don't know why they'd call so much attention to the fact females were making more than males in the same position
