So Auburn will be paying Chizik $200,000 or so per month essentially for winning the NC, when Cam and Nick and everyone else on the field did the hard work. There has never been a more clear argument for paying players a salary... they do the hard work and they are the ones who earn it, and people like Chizik are still reaping the rewards for someone else's hard work years down the road.
The financial rewards for winning the NC flowed to Chizik and not to the rest of the people who did the hard work to earn it.
Not saying players shouldn't be compensated (more if you consider a scholarship compensation), but if it's due to only others hardwork, then why did we fire Chizik when you could possibly say it way because of others lack of hard work?
"you're so vain, I'll bet you think this post is about you, don't you? Don't you?"
No! As PM has indicated several times before the amount is $156,250 per month for 48 months.
As for the rest of your post I can only say the current players agreed to play football under the current scholarship arrangement and nothing more.
As for future players - well that's a discussion for another day...
With my past and future precisely divided am I at that moment....I haven't decided.
