Wow! Such high crimes. The NCAA should be hauled to jail for not paying these guys a little money each month. And I'm not a UNC fan, but this is stupid.

How much money will UNC give back for the bowl games the 2 players played? I understand rules and such but these schools are getting paid millions for bowl apperances but yet none of it goes to these players. The schools state that the players are getting a quality education in exchange for their blood, sweat, and tears. Those players would get the same quality education applying for finacial aid. Something is needing to be done about this and soon. Seems as if these players are getting the short end of the stick while these schools are getting richer.

Trying to make sense of all this. They went on a trip or trips that were paid for by a former player who happens to play in the NFL? If he chose to pay for there trip , so be it! Just because they are college athlete means that they can't be human and take a trip, so what if this guy paid for it!! I'm not a UNC fan, but this seems to be little tacky! Is this all the NCAA has to do? Get real! You can go to every university and find ticky tack claims like this! The school is making millions of $ off of all these players anyway! They deserve to get something!

If these guys get money there is no difference between them and pro players. Plus you are forgetting, THEY ARE GETTING A FREE COLLEGE EDUCATION. They are lucky they did not get more.
