It is unfair to make others hundreds of millions and be offered an education which is maybe worth 50k. The best players leave early anyway, no education. Pool the D1 union money and split it evenly.

Colleges are for educating students, not for running professional sports teams. If players want to be paid then they should skip college and go straight to the pros. I will ruin college sports.

This is not possible. You are not allowed to go straight pro.

A stipend should suffice. We need to keep college sports as un professional as possible. Unions will only cause conflict and missed games, walk outs etc. A loss of fan support would follow.

They may not get everything...but they get more than than the average Scholarship student gets. They also have the opportunity for an education to fall back on if they don't play professional sports

because, while the NCAA does not handle everything correctly, these players are students with scholarships, not workers. Just because their is a buck to confiscate does not make them workers.

Not true at all. They are workers. They spend 40-50 a week with sports. More during the season. They make hundreds of millions of dollars for others.

While they are part of the team sure. But none of the players receive physical therapy 20 years later. The players need a union they are being taken advantage of.

They get free food, free housing, free education, and a stipend. More and the common students will suffer.

Actually many Athletic Departments are an individual financial entity. Athletic department money is not funneled into academia.

It will hurt them more than they realize when they become a true 'employee'

Yeah because true employees get paid. That will really suck for them.

1) they are not employees. 2) unions SUCK. 3) the athletes are paid well enough with the opportunities they receive through the schools they represent. 4) nothing good has happened to athletics since

Unionization will destroy college athletics. Unionization of anything in today's world destroy's any business entity, not only economically, but functional efficiency as well.

The threat of a union is good. The actualization of a union fails to address the problem.

High quality college coach....feel he will consider keeping a few current coaches with strong ties to roster and recruiting players (example - Joseph, Busch, Fisher)......Huskers Rhule.....GO BIG RED!!

Come on, the options were all maybe mediocre at best coaches. Would all be in over their heads in Big 10 just like Frost. KU coach and staff, KSU coach and staff, ISU coach and staff, NCST coach and staff, Army coach and staff, Bronco M and his VA staff? No thank you. Choice was a no brainer.

Skeptical, never stayed long enough to measure if his programs were built to last. Bailed from each HC job after having his best year. Almost as if he doubted he could maintain the success.

I live in Jackson, MS and believe me, anyone who can do what he's done at an HBCU school like Jackson St can flat out coach and he talked the #1 overall recruit in the country into signing with them! Not to mention several other highly ranked recruits. Yes, he could get it done! JSU SUCKED B4 DEION!

His look at me narcissist style is not a fit for the state or the university...and he is not proven at the power 5 level.

No, Deion would not be a good fit. Too much flash, not enough head coaching experience. That said, he has done a great job where he is.

Our largest challenge is someone who can not only bring in 4 and 5 star recruits, but to adapt them to the CULTURE at Nebraska and bring out the best of them within that culture. Deion Sanders is not a part of Nebraska Cornhusker culture and cannot bring that to players.

Promising, yet no experience as HC in the Power 5.

Nebraska MUST get this hire right. They simply cannot afford the risk of a coach with no power 5 coaching/recruiting experience. The stakes are to high to gamble.

No matter the hype and potential, I want a qualified experienced HC who's exemplified those traits that we so desperately need. Deion could be that guy in a few years but I don't want to take the chance at this point that he's not.
