Same as it ever was.

For the hopeless romantics out there…

Ah, the good old days, when college administrators could sanctimoniously deny paying players and were believed.

    This is really weird Senator. I was typing a reply to the post: Leave my Rocker Alone and used the Talking Heads reference: “Same as it ever was”. Then I hit “Home” and see the title to your 9:50 post. What’s the odds?

    Well, I’d just like to see someone step forward who knew we paid players back then. Come on, come on – we don’t have all day.

    Ok, ok. Take it easy and let your Great Granddaughter guide your fingers to the keys. She’s old enough to appreciate the dirty words you want to use. Has anyone asked you to star in Dirty Old Great Grandpa 5.0?

    Well, no one can say that coaches aren’t paid more than presidents now.

    I’m betting Kenneth L. (Tug) Wilson was “shocked like everyone else living it out in real time” when he heard the allegations that players were paid.

  5. As stated before, only reason Mcehennley(sp) came to UWA was they paid better than any other school.
