One of the topics discussed in a Division 1A Athletic Director’s meeting this week was the Division I school’s rejection of the proposed “pay-for-play” model. One of the record 120 AD’s that were at the meeting was Iowa State’s Jamie Pollard, and added even more than just the general statement he gave a link to on Twitter.

Pollard sounded off on the “pay-for-play” model, claiming it would eliminate “all other sports” and only helps “those that do not value education.”

 

 

 

 

What are your thoughts on the “pay-for-play” model? Do you side with the ISU AD or do you believe that those playing football should benefit from the income?
