Come fly with me.

Shorter Arizona AD Greg Byrne:  Before you talk about football players being exploited, don’t forget to count the money we spend flying all of our student-athletes to away games!

    Plus the money on uniforms, equipment, medical care, etc. I mean these kids practically have a silver spoon put into their mouth, how dare they act like they can barley afford anything.

    College football and basketball sold their soul to the TV$ and now they are having to give up a chunk of their butt too. Ouch!

    Considering the astronomical amounts of money being made, you’d think they could come up with more creative bullshit than plane tickets.

  5. My employer also spends a lot of travel money on me each year. Per NCAA member logic, it is strange that they still pay me a salary even with all those travel perks. It’s as if travelling is a part of my job yet I still have expenses back home that require a salary to pay them.

    So if they start getting a stipend will he start charging them for air fare and hotel stays?

    Schedule all home games with cupcakes then, that is cheaper at ~$1 M a game.
