Mike Leach with the words of wisdom. That dude belongs in an institution.

This is actually a pretty complicated issue, but I don't know why the students can't receive a monthly stipend as part of their scholarships. At the very least they should be guaranteed their scholarship even if injured. At least at UK (university of Kentucky) kids who leave the university in good standing - for any reason, like an injury or going Pro - can come back and complete their degree with their scholarship still good. Of course, the NCAA could solve a lot of the problems if they would opt to provide the athletes with monthly allowances. The idea that these athletes aren't eating and have to endure home difficulties while the university makes millions...that's just ridiculous. People hate on the "one and done" culture - but can you blame the kid for doing it? Maybe if student athletes got paid more of them would stick around for their 2nd and 3rd years.

They bring in more money than LaVar Ball wanted for his brand

Fake expenses are great because they allow the people in charge to buy cool stuff.

Well.. There goes the excuse that some American Athletes are really "smart"...

America 1950 = logical wealth
America 2017 = unlogical poverty and unlogical wealth.

Hey guys, students are given meal money so that they can eat. Napier most likely wasted some of this money, that's why he was hungry. But I partially agree, some restrictions are absolutely ridiculous.

EDIT: I think it's pretty stupid that Ed sued the NCAA. Every athlete would love to play a game with them in it.

AT&T at the half is presented by AT&T! No! How!

Has Dabo Swinney had his dick kicked in yet, lost his wife to a junkee garbageman, contracted herpes, and had to file chapter 11 bankruptcy? Fuck that punk ass fucking bitch. I hope he gets raped by a walrus in front of live television cameras at SeaWorld

Did you forget those guys get athletic scholarships and usually don't have to do any real academic work? Cry me a fucking river.
David Diamond
Kinda think Gordon Ramsey looks like Steve Kerr
Kashondra McArthur
I'm so glad I found this show! He is a hell of a lot more reliable and relatable than any politician or new network.
Ravi Sharma
Didn't South Park do something around this too? Cartman acted like he was a coach, or something similar

1:13 no shit

the only organization that makes those tv jewelry network presenters look like decent human being. Hell even slaves who behaved got food, that is how fucked up the ncaa is, its morals are juat slightly below slavery. Also if a teacher called a student a faggot he would get fired in a heart beat but because there is a ball involved its ok.
The Orange Boys
15:47 It is very uncomfortable to watch John do anything even seemingly athletic. Liked the video tho
archisaurus
This is so true.

I know this is old, but I just have to say after seeing that man at 0:53, it's time men realized they don't all look better with their heads shaved!
Quinn Sacalis
When I heard Werner I was like "some serious shit is about to go down!"
Aiden Rae

Lmfao yeah let's stick up for football players they're totally slaves not over payed whiney babies playing a violent coliseum like sport. They're mistreated multi billionarres for playing a game oohhhh so saddd! ohhhh I'm so sad for them awwwww.

The NCAA puts more blacks through college than the NAACP or any other diversity charity.

Millionaire coaches with athletes who don't get paid a penny and are penalized by accepting anything. Still claiming that the athletes have an entitlement mentality. boycott the N.C.A.A.
Android 16
The athletes should protest by intentionally fucking up and ruining the game.
Android 16
They should boycott The NCAA.

N.C.A.A. Nobody gives a fucking crap about athletes.

you're in a video game and you didn't get paid.

"There's enough entitlement In this world." Stop talking you worthless sack of shit.
Tyler Peterson
College sports coaches get paid millions of dollars a year, but academic departments can't afford to hire anything beyond adjunct faculty, the reason the university is supposed to exist.
Sagal137
I don't understand the concept of paying a coach but not a player. Players PLAY the game, Coaches scream and chant stuff and players to insipre or traumatize them. Why should they get millions for being part of ruining athletes' lives?
Enzo Mondo
Yeah, but you should never ever trust anything EA claims. EA is like the Umbrella Corporation of the real world
