No matter what Bob Stoops says, the status quo is not a solution for college athletics. Oklahoma’s head football coach, a man I like and respect, recycled a well-worn defense of the shamateurism status quo in an interview with Sporting News columnist Mike Hayes.
“You know what school would cost here for non-state guy?” Stoops rhetorically asked Hayes. “Over $200,000 for room, board and everything else. That’s a lot of money. Ask the kids who have to pay it back over 10-15 years with student loans. You get room and board, and we’ll give you the best nutritionist, the best strength coach to develop you, the best tutors to help you academically, and coaches to teach you and help you develop. How much do you think it would cost to hire a personal trainer and tutor for 4-5 years?
“I don’t get why people say these guys don’t get paid. It’s simple, they are paid quite often, quite a bit and quite handsomely.”
It’s such a good deal I’m surprised Stoops doesn’t coach at Oklahoma for “room, board and everything else.” Surely, he’d love to pursue a graduate degree or two. Or maybe he likes trying to figure out how to spend $4 million in salary every year.
I get it. I used to believe what Stoops still does. Stoops is six years older than me. We were college football players during an era when a “free” education and “everything else” were a defensible exchange for playing football and basketball at the Division I level. Those days are gone, long gone.
They were swallowed by television networks, digested by shoe companies and spit out for re-consumption by video-game makers that make billion-dollar deals and billion-dollar profits off the labor of young adults. The kids now play more games, on more different nights, in far more time zones than we ever did. And seemingly all the games are televised and financially maximized.
Coaches at Stoops’ level now earn 10 times as much as Hayden Fry did in the early 1980s when he was grooming the Stoops brothers. The coaches now earn life-altering generational wealth. The kids are doing more work for the same compensation (room, board and everything else). It’s not right.

James Glover's insight:
Riddell used poor judgement by not informing the public the risk of concussion.
