SEC players mostly leave lobbying to others
HOOVER, AL - Southeastern Conference players have mostly been content to let league administrators and coaches take up the drumbeat for NCAA reform.
Not that they're complaining.
Players at SEC Media Days this week were mostly pleased about the trend toward a few more perks - including scholarships that would offer full cost of attendance. They also admit they've already got it pretty good.
SEC commissioner Mike Slive has even said the Big Five conferences could break away from the NCAA if players aren't compensated more properly.
The life of major college football players and coaches could change drastically once the NCAA and Big Five conferences are done revamping the current system.
Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel says players aren't starving but "it would be nice to receive a little more compensation."
