Well if the player accepts the money then yes. But I would like to think that in a perfect world (which is where that rule would take place) the school who had the rich alum would be punished equally.

The alternative is to just allow players to take money from non-affiliated people which is way worse. You cant ignore what happened. If the players took the money they are no longer deemed amateurs.

I am very draconian on the idea of money and players.

It's a tough one. Is it fair to punish a school who plays games with a player that accepted money, if that school had no knowledge of the payment? What is a school supposed to do? Pray all of the players are 100% honest and compliant? That's not possible. We've had players lose scholarships over MUCH less.

Unless they start throwing the book at the people paying the players, and I mean serious prison time, and significant punishments (option of large $$ or jail?) for the players, I don't see a way to stop it.

Well the payers arent really committing a crime are they? I mean what is stopping me from giving money to a random student on campus?

The only way to stop this entirely is take harsh action on the schools so they police themselves. That wont happen though so this is all and exercise in futility.

It's a good question as to whether or not the student athletes are committing a crime by taking money. They are amateur athletes and therefore cannot get paid to remain eligible. I have no idea what documents they sign to retain/declare eligibility.

Whereas I was not an amateur athlete in college. I was free to take money from any person or team without financially affecting my university.

Nobody is handing money to random students so I'm not sure what your point is.

Well, as long as you report the gift money when completing your Fafsa I would think you're okay. But if you didn't, you would be committing some type of fraud wouldn't you be?

Honest question - because I don't know - is an athletic or academic scholarship a form of financial aid that would require reporting receipt of gift money as you described from an unrelated party?

Then you might want to actually read what I posted and what it was in response to because it tells you what my point is.

Bertogliat talked about prison time for the people paying the players...as far as I know that isnt an actual crime. You can gift a private citizen money out of the blue if you want to. 3M could give a an engineer money before they work there if they wanted to. There is nothing inherently illegal about it. The violation would be an NCAA one not a criminal one. (leaving out the Financial Aid argument because that is another argument altogether) That is the point I was trying to make.

I'll get technical here, but in a scratch the surface way...

Even if it is a gift, if the amount gifted exceeds the annual exclusion (currently $15,000), a gift tax return needs to be filed by the person making the gift. Not doing so is technically a violation of the internal revenue code, and if you specifically fail to do so with a fraudulent intent, it can be criminal.

That being said, because the unified credit is currently approximately $11.5M for an individual, for most people failing to file a gift tax return is a shrug of the shoulders type of situation with the IRS (especially because they are way understaffed).

But for those boosters who would otherwise be in a position to pay the estate tax, YES, it could rise to the level of criminal.

The bigger issue there is if it is a scheme to avoid detection, which is essentially fraud. Not necessarily tax fraud, but what we would call "garden variety fraud". You know it when you see it fraud. Depending on the proximity of the booster to the school, it could rise to this level, and if there are multiple individuals or boosters involved, there could be a conspiracy. To my knowledge it's never hit racketeering territory, but I suppose if it were particularly egregious UNLV or SMU style, it could be. But that is very unlikely.

As to the players, it is arguable as to whether it is a gift or not. If the reason for the gift is the promise of playing football, it can be argued that it is income earned from football, and thus reportable by the player. But the IRS has not spent its time considering that currently.

There have to be some other laws specific to college athletes or NCAA. I know the players can't have agents. I don't think agents can pay players while in college, for future services. I don't think shoe or clothing manufacturers can pay players. It feels like it should be more than just a rule when it has such huge impacts on the schools, who may never know a player is getting paid.

There are NCAA rules about amateurism that refer to agents, sponsorships, etc. But there aren't really laws prohibiting a legal adult from going on and taking on an agent or a sponsor, so if a 19-year old quit the NCAA basketball and did their own thing, that's fine-- they just can't do it in the NCAA.

The NCAA has certain statutory position in regard to antitrust; but basically, since it is a voluntary organization of both players and universities alike, courts aren't generally going to interfere unless there is some breakdown of the NCAA's reading of their own rules (due process "junk"). But the NCAA is entitled to make rules dictating their organization, provided the rules aren't discriminatory of a protected class.

The NCAA has those rules not the criminal justice system. The player wouldnt go to jail for hiring an agent they just would no longer be allowed to play.

We had this in the College Football 2018 thread,

http://www.startribune.com/if-miac-drops-st-thomas-the-tommies-options-are-complicated/509992312/

I wish Rachel Blount was looking only at football for EADA expenses, because that's really what this is about. When you compare UST to DII football schools, they're right there.

Only ten CFB programs have won a title since current recruits were born. They make that sound interesting but the hockey count is only 11. And that's a reminder current recruits were basically in diapers or non existent for the last Gopher title.
Lead us out of Loserville, Bob.
104 big four seasons with no finals appearance
Times advanced in playoffs last 15 seasons: Vikings 3, Wild 2, Twins 0, Wolves 0

Delusional Huskers fans, basically. They'll be improved, I'm sure. But not 6/1 to make the CFP improved.

They have a new coach and now every CFB predictor is expecting immediate impact. I think even most Husker fans are wondering what the hell is going on.

Tim Brando made a big splash when he said he thinks the Huskers will finish in the top 10 this year in an interview with Paul Finebaum. I'm guessing that's where some of this came from.

People think Scott Frost is God because of what he did at Central Florida. Well it is a little different getting Florida players to stay close to home than it is to get them to go to Lincoln...even if he is "perhaps" going a bit Doctor Tom Osbourne on the selection process. (i.e. relaxing the standards, going after the questionable...if only Prop 41 still existed they could be a powerhouse again :lol: )

Florida is a hot bed of recruits, even with the number of schools there. It is easier to get kids to come there or stay there.

But wouldn't Frost need time to bring in recruits? Or are they saying they have players in house to be Top Ten and the former coach was THAT bad.

And they would also expect Frost to turn around everything with new systems and expect immediate impact?

This isn't college hockey where you can have a slow start. A couple of losses and your chance at Top 10 goes *poof*. And the Gophers are on the schedule.....

I'm guessing you mean Adrian Martinez. Taylor Martinez played at Nebraska from 2010-2013 and I don't believe they're related.

Inject the ADHD pace of the Hawaii vs Arizona game straight into my vein! Screw the under card matchup of MIA vs FLA.

Thought this was an interesting design out of SDSU with student specific food and food truck access to stadium.

https://thedailyaztec.com/95018/news/sd ... amenities/
The stadium was designed with students’ best interests in mind. This thinking extends to amenities such as discounted concessions for students, Wicker said...“The concourse for our students will be developed for them,” Wicker said. “Our goal is they’ll be able to use their RedID, the money that’s on their Aztec dining plan, (at stadium dining areas).”
I saw another article noting most schools are having no problem selling their premium tickets, so they're trying to figure out ways to make more parts of their stadium a 'premium' experience.

Starting a new tradition this year of going to 1 college football game a year with some friends. I've only been to Minnesota, Iowa State and Notre Dame before. The first few years are going to be all SEC with LSU, A&M & Ole Miss among the first few.

I'll be checking out Neyland Stadium in a few weeks when the Vols take on BYU in primetime on ESPN. Looking forward to all that comes with an SEC gameday. Going to try some sailgating (check it out) among other things. Expecting to hear Rocky Top 100+ times and expect to be fully addicted to SEC gameday atmosphere.

Also funny, the game against BYU will be the first where alcohol sales are permitted at Tennessee, which is funny because... well BYU.

If you have the choice visit LSU when ARK visits. This year it's the weekend before Thanksgiving on 11/23. Great rivalry game that I attended at both places for years.

I hope the only reason you went to Iowa State to see a game was proximity and not for some love of that damn team. They have made improvements to Jack Trice but Ames is a $h!t hole of a town. The only real thing Jack Trice has going for it is it's location and amount of tailgating space outside the stadium. Matt Campbell has helped put butts in the seats but his time in Ames will be over soon enough when the right program comes calling him.

Yes that's the reason. Went to an ISU/Texas game to visit a friend in college down there. The tailgating scene down there was pretty legit. Cedric Benson (RIP) ran all over the Cyclones that day.

I went to Knoxville for Tennessee-LSU two years ago.....honestly, I was expecting more from the experience. But, they had also just fired Butch Jones & they were kind of in turmoil, so that may have kind of taken away from the excitement level.

Slap Shot: I'm actually going down to the LSU-Arkansas game in November. Me & buddies were hoping to go to the LSU-Auburn game in late October, but things came up, so then we looked at Georgia-Florida in Jacksonville the next weekend, but wanted to kind of see campus sites rather than Jacksonville. LSU-Arkansas is the one that worked out for everyone's schedule.

That's awesome. Death Valley is a great place to see a game and ARK is one of their better rivals. Hopefully the game is competitive.

My mom's parents retired to Fayetteville in the late 60's, and my dad's sister's husband was from Monroe, LA. They moved to Baton Rouge after they were married. We would alternate trips to either every Thanksgiving for years and I became a secondary fan of both programs by proxy which of course is odd to anyone from either side given the hatred.

When the annual boot game was moved to the Friday after Thanksgiving (1992) we would be sure to go to the state that hosted and attend the game. Although the games in ARK were held at their Little Rock campus so we had a bit of a drive those years.

Glad to see the Gophers take heat for their schedule. Howard and Akron seem like stiff high end scheduling.

Of the lower tier B1G teams, I think our schedule is tough.

Iowa ended up looking like the Iowa team I love to hate. First snap....have to blow a time out because Nate Stanley is a blockhead. While Stanley's numbers for the day look good he still is the blockhead all us Iowa fans love to hate. Iowa's O-line is real good even though it took a hit by losing LT Alaric Jackson for "several weeks". Iowa's defense is soft and streaky. AJ Espenesa completely disappeared for the entire game. If you read stories about the game you will see notes of double and triple teams....those didn't happen too often. AJ was a non-factor the entire game. Amani Jones and Chauncey Ghoulston from the other DE spot were bigger factors. Our linebackers are hideous. If you can get Iowa into their new look 4-2-5 you can pick them apart through the air. Right now as much as I don't want the fate of this team to lie on Stanley's shoulders, I think the success of Iowa will go as Stanley goes. I'm holding my breathe until after the Rutgers game this weekend to see how I feel about the game at Jack Trice on the 14th. The outcome of that game will seal the fate of this Iowa team for the year.

Went to the NDSU game at Target Field Saturday with my Bison grad daughter. The field barely fit between the 1st base dugout and left field fence and a lot of the time they were playing on the infield dirt.
Overall it was actually a lot of fun and the area bars looked to be doing a land office business.

WI hasn’t allowed a point yet. Scary even if not big competition.
110-0 so far.

Saturday the 28th, Wisconsin and Northwestern. Wisconsin for whatever reason struggles against Northwestern, and I am thinking the cats get the upset in Madison.

You may think, but what about Michigan the week before? Itll be a slugfest and Sconnie pulls the win off.

Someone should apologize to the Gameday crew now for how horrible of a town Ames really is. :mrgreen:
