Paying athletes... Usc_teeth Points Member Joined: Dec 18, 2017 Messages: 375 Likes Received: 222 Sep 30, 2019 #1 has a thread already been created discussing this??? If it hasn’t, this should be interesting. So Gavin “dipshit” Newsome is apparently signing a bill to make California the first state that will allow Universities to pay athletes. I’m not sure of any details but if other states don’t follow our (idiotic) lead on this, won’t thus create a huuuuuge recruiting advantage for California schools??? I mean even a few thousand a month will seem like heaven for these kids who have no clue how much they are already being given just because it isn’t green Bills in their hands when they get housing, tutors, books, education, medical coverage, dental coverage, etc Basically we could hire anybody and our recruiting classes should be top 10 no matter what. We could almost stop recruiting if these other states don’t follow. Kids will beg to come. Of course Helton would still lose with the 25 best kids every season because he has no clue what he is doing but for football and hoops, this will be interesting.
