    It’s probably naive to think that ISU has never paid a player at some point, but Niang specifically I am guessing/hoping that he was not.

    Depends on what era you’re talking about.

    The paying for recruits doesn’t seem that likely just because I’d bet that money falls off pretty fast once you get past the hs superstars. At ISU I wouldn’t be surprised if someone got a cushy job they’re getting overpaid for, maybe a little bit of cash here and there from a third party, stuff like that.

    Edit: Sorry, thought this was a surly thread, not a simply thread.

    If they got paid, we got our money's worth...

    Believe Jamaal Tinsley drove a new Lincoln Navigator on campus back in the day as well, or a similar vehicle.
