HBO Special - How many players get paid?


So the HBO Special (scheduled for March 30th - I think) about Auburn may also include an interview with Chris Keys of Alabama. From what I hear it's supposed to be mostly about Camgate, but adding Keys to the mix puts a broader scope on story if someone like Keys is on there.

The purpose of this post is to simply ask your thougths about players getting paid - not if it should be legalized, but which camp do you fall in?

Camp A: There are only a few D1 schools breaking the rules when it comes to paying players. They should be made an example of and get the hammer when busted.

Camp B: Any D1 school with top recruiting classes are paying their players under the table in some manner. Some schools are just better at concealing it.

Now admittedly, I am a bit jaded. College football is big business and there's a ton of pressure to win with only so many top flight recruits. IMO they (the top recruits) are getting some kind of kickbacks from every major program. Some more than others. It could be rental cars (T Pryor), cash prizes (Cam), pro/agent benefits (USC/NC), discounted hotel fees (go gamecocks), etc.

It will never be made legal - so this practice will continue.
