The college rules are not fair. Universities are bringing in massive amounts of revenue thanks to the talent of football and basketball players. The fans will pay to go see them, they will buy the players' jerseys or school apparel, they will pay to park and pay to eat in the school cafeteria.

All the while, the players don't see a penny of that money.

I am a college kid. My parents pay a lot of money for me to put my school's name on my resume, hoping it will mean something to my future boss. They pay a lot for me to eat sub-par food (my school eating facilities committed many health violations including having rat feces beside the storage of food and a grasshopper in a student's sandwiches, the list goes on) and live in a 17x20 foot room with two other kids.

Every college student worries about money. My school's campus is located in an area known as Little Italy so once or twice a month my friends and I go to a cheap restaurant to get a break from the cafeteria. We ask for the bread provided to the table to be wrapped up because our cafeteria only provides bread sticks.

To be honest, if people were willing to pay a lot of money for my stuff, I'd do it in a heartbeat. We're immature college kids, I'd love money to take that girl on a date or buy that expensive bottle of vodka I had last week (I don't condone underage drinking, but it happens pretty often in college believe it or not).

Just look at the ESPN documentary Fab Five. The school provided nothing to them, but reaped the benefits. And then Chris Webber gets in trouble for trying to get money. I'd love to be given a car. Asking any college kid to turn that down is stupid. The people providing these things to college kids should be punished not the student.

I sympathize with these kids who are criticised for breaking the rules that don't favor them (rules are rules but come on).

The actions of the North Carolina football players are asinine. The recent report that 12 players accumulated $13,000 in parking tickets is jaw-dropping. My college does not have a good football team.

Most of them are still cocky and mostly just hang out amongst themselves, and you could tell most are not the smartest kids you'll ever meet. But it is up to the coach to keep these kids on the right track. Parking tickets are easy to avoid, just park in the right spots.

The North Carolina kids showed a disrespect to the law by parking in fire lanes and handicapped spots. The coach didn't know about this?

These kids need to be taught discipline. Adding on to this situation was the group of players (most of whom still got drafted into the NFL) who got suspended this season. If it was up to Butch Davis, do you think they would have been suspended?

Probably not because it hurts the team. The kids show a disrespect to the law for parking tickets, just imagine what will happen when they are actually getting paid for real. The crimes could escalate and this is not what college football is all about.

I get it that Terrelle Pryor broke the rules, but making an extra buck and showing a disregard to the law are much different.

Butch Davis should take the brunt of the criticism. Letting his players get out of control is unacceptable for a man who is supposed to be a positive influence in their lives. This was over a three and a half year period so it wasn't just this year when a group got suspended.

If coaches lose their jobs for being ignorant to players getting money, then being ignorant to players breaking petty rules should be a red flag for any program. I hope North Carolina puts pressure on Butch Davis to resign, just like Jim Tressel was pressured to do by Ohio State.

Say whatever you want, Davis deserves it more than Tressel.

Comment, argue, let me know what you think. Thanks for the read
