“We’re believers that everything in life is performance-based.”

As a general rule of thumb, when somebody assures you that a proposal he’s pitching is really not that complicated, it usually is.

Take it away, Steve Spurrier.

    So a coach decides that one player contributed more to the team in one week and therefore that player gets more money, regardless of “star” status? Uh, yeah, Steve… have fun keeping your locker room together.

      Ask Pat Dye (if you can sober him up long enough to absorb a question) and Wayne Hall: it’s easier than you think, although you have to watch out for the Eric Ramseys of the world. Maybe Bobby Lowder has a future as a consultant to football coaches looking to set up a workable payment system. He, Dye and Hall could have a second act as consulting bagmen. Brilliant!!!!

    “The plan we came up with was expenses-related money, … Guys who play every game would probably get $300 per game, while those guys who never play even though they’re on scholarship may only get $150 or so.”

    Do hotels, gas stations & restaurants in Columbia charge different rates to the families of starters and back ups?

      Hotel Whitney rates are different but there’s a discount if they pump their own gas.

        It is NOT pay for play.
        The amount of money each player receives is based on how well he plays.
        I never took a logic class but these two statements seem contradictory

          Chew a little kudzu with the locals in one of the Cockabooses in Columbiadishu. It’ll all start making sense after a while.

            Some of the finer shops in the Columbiadishu tourist district located only a RPG shot away from the Whitney:

              I thought that was the Governor’s Mansion, but I didnt see the state flag out front.

              • Dog in Fla

                Nikki struck the Mansion colors and plans to put the Palmetto State battle flag to use as her photo-op background

                She feels using the Union flag as a background and lapel jewelry hurts her chances of being selected as the next smoking-hot vice-presidential candidate

    So I’m just curious, why does he assume that just b/c there is more profit that the players would share in it? The reason coaches share in the wealth is they can go elsewhere to coach. At a time when the academic side is seeing cutbacks you would think some of the bounty would go to academics. Well maybe not.

      Where the income outpaces spending, it is to a degree. The problem here is that the spending almost always outpaces income w/r/t sports in higher education. The majority of institutions use institutional support to subsidize athletics; not the other way around.

    No doubt a bounty is coming next?

    Can you dock pay for keying a professor’s car?

    Craig James endorses this proposal.

    It includes hookers, right?

    I’m wondering if the more productive players got better rooms at the Whitney.

    So, fellow (all genders) Dawgs, what do you think Steve’s players think of this idea , pass or fail? They are placing him on a Player’s First pedestal that will entail busting their ass out of loyalty of his very vocal and public remarks. He’s brushing up and shining his “I really do care for you guys” halo to counter the Garcia years. You can say what you wish about his IQ, but you can never say he has gotten unsmart.

    It’s all a part of his upped recruiting plan.

    Richt should counter with an European vacation for players and family after the season. If no one goes for it, he still is a great guy for proposing that wonderful idea that includes their families and if the SEC turns it down, then they are the bad guys and Richt is still the good guy. See how that works?.

    I sometimes wonder if some of you are paranoid enough to blog.

      “what do you think Steve’s players think of this idea, pass or fail?”

      He should give each starter a trust fund

        Thanks, DIF. Romney doesn’t mention why he didn’t go for NG or Reserves during ‘Nam. He could have joined, campaigned for his party in Ala and had his Service Records lost like “W” did without ever going near a war zone. As a vet I abhor such mushmouth patriotism these aholes keep putting forth while trying to tell the rest of us what our current President should do with the military.

        I will always respect Obama’s handling of military matters plus the little extra respect he gives by going to Dover AFB to salute the fallen in their caskets as they arrive “home”. He started in his first year in office. This after Cheney used a robot to copy his signature that he was too lazy to write on condolence letters to the fallen’s family. All veterans should never forget.
