Paying playerz iz hard wurk.

Iowa athletic director claims he’ll “probably choose to do something else for a living” than continue in his $400K/year position if player compensation becomes a reality because it’ll be too complicated for him to handle.

These guys don’t even bother to make an effort to sound convincing anymore.

    Agreed. It’s not like he works for a university that has thousands of employees already on the payroll.

    Maybe he should go back to management school to learn how to delegate. What an ass.

    In 79 or 80, after the Russkies invaded Afghanistan, Carter ordered restart of draft registration, and said that colleges that get federal aid (which is all of ‘em) must monitor compliance. College administrators, who lovingly, painstakingly, devote endless staff to affirmative action, said it was too hard to comply.

    Higher education has always been great at combining bullshit with chicken shit.

    The school sets up a trust. Jersey sales, games played % of TV cash, appearances etc…If you graduate…You get the cash.

    Otherwise you forfeit your cash.

    While I agree with you on the point of him not sounding convincing I did just have this thought. If players get paid then when they get suspended for games do they also lose their pay for those games?

    This guy pays his basketball players more than his football players, why do I give a shit what he says about anything. Is Iowa in the ACC?

    Are you kidding me? Any other job of that same type position in the world is more complicated. What else is he going to do!?!?

    As if paying players will be something coaches are involved in.

    Universities are gigantic bureaucracies. One of the few things they are good at is processing paperwork.
