    I went on a recruiting visit to Arkansas my senior year. First thing they did was send around an "academic advisor" to each of the recruits to ask about grades and test scores. He spent a lot of time with most of the recruits explaining how they could "improve" grades and test scores and how they wouldn't have to worry about grades at Arkansas if they decided to come there. When he got to me and I told him my grades and SAT score, he said, "Well, you should just try for an academic scholarship" and walked off.

    It doesn't happen everywhere.

    It happens at every major college program.

    It happens at many not so major programs.

    You live in a bubble if you don't think so.

    Full scholarship
    Free education
    Free living
    Free meals
    A chance to improve your game and become a professional
    Every perk you can imagine

    Also, if there was a rule to pay players then it's not just football, it's every sport. So how do you determine what each player should get? For each sport? Should the star QB of the team have to make the same amount as the worst women's volleyball player? What if they have a severe injury? Should they still get paid even when they can never play again? What happens to that scholarship/contract?

    College football should be banned, basically.

    What does that have to do with cheating in college football or Auburn?

    Sports Illustrated ran a story on Clemson having a sex for signing scam.
