    Re: Funny Jon Stewart peice on the NCAA rules

    Jon Stewart is pretty funny and I like his show but the interviews with the wrestler form Minnesota and ex UCLA star Ed O'bannon were messed up and just not funny-weird. Ed O'Bannon's should win his lawsuit and be compensated, the NCAA does makes billions on the athletes that represent the NCAA and the NCAA needs to make some changes so athletes get some financial compensation during their 4 years to help provide them some spending money to put gas in their cars and buy some snacks at the store (No not those kind of snacks you evil thinking Cyclones) - Then again you will have those that say they are given FULL RIDE ATHLETIC scholarships that pay for all their R/B and tuition for 4 years and sometimes for graduate school. Difficult debate and 4 years of college to earn a degree for FREE ! I'm not sure about the wrestler from Minnesota. He said he was only getting partial scholarship and he's trying to make some extra money on the side rapping to help pay for college expenses. I just don't know. -What I do know is athletes still get money under the table from boosters. They did back in the day when I played and I knew a couple of U. of I ballers that got crazy money back in the final four days for some made up Summer jobs they supposedly did for an asst, and countless other stories of money given to players that I won't mention by name. You ask any poster on this forum that played college ball and they will tell you they knew of some NCAA violation of an athlete getting some compensation for bogus work study jobs or similar stories. It's not going to stop unless they start paying these guys I'm afraid. You can't expect these kids to just sit in their dorm rooms all the time and do nothing. (They aren't just sitting in those dorm room doing nothing by the way ! wink, wink, nod, nod)

    I didn't sit in my room doing nothing. I also had a job. A job that wasn't even close to a full ride scholarship, first rate training for the next level, or a stipend.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.
