Marshall Faulk says he would have taken money in college

Eventual Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk recently attended the Jim Mora Celebrity Golf Classic.  While there, Faulk answered questions about the man who replaced Mora in Seattle, Pete Carroll.

Carroll came to the Seahawks from USC.  Last month, the NCAA announced significant sanctions against the program arising from payments made by prospective agents to tailback Reggie Bush in 2004 and 2005.

“I love Pete, and I’m not quite sure how they’re gonna turn out, but I’m
getting sick and tired of seeing programs get in trouble
, and coaches
can move on, but the players at USC can’t go to bowl games,” Faulk told Jim Moore of SeattlePI.com.  “There’s got to be some accountability and responsibility.  I’m not just
blaming Pete; I’m talking about guys in that situation. . . .

“Here’s my thing — it’s well-documented that if you’re not cheating,
you’re not trying in sports.  Some of the best things that are done in
sports are illegal.  You work around the rules and try to get things
done.”

Faulk knows a thing or two about the topic.  He was a member of the 2001 Rams, and some members of the 2001 Rams believe that the Patriots secretly videotaped their final walk-through practice before Super Bowl XXXVI.  “Maybe this did happen,” Faulk when reports (later retracted) of the surreptitious camera work arose in February 2008.  “I had put this game behind me.  All
in all, it just brings out emotions that you really don’t want to talk
about or think about in that sense.  I don’t think there’s anything you
can do about it.  If that’s true, they got away with it.  So be it.”

Faulk also has a “so be it” attitude regarding players like Bush who got paid while playing college football.  In fact, Faulk says that, if he’d been offered money, he would have taken it, too.

“Heck yeah, I would have taken it,” Faulk told Moore.  “I’m not gonna lie to
you, there’s no doubt about it.”

Faulk’s views make it easier to understand why Bush (allegedly) took the money.  And while Faulk won’t lie about the fact that he would have taken money while playing for the Aztecs, he surely would lie about receiving money if someone had asked him after the fact whether he had gotten paid.

    Dirt poor athletes make millions of dollars for college programs.
    And don’t give me that “they get a free education bullshit” tuition is like 25-50k depending on school. Football programs bring in millions.
    On top of that there is a limit on the number of hours these kids can work in school. It’s total B.S. that they don’t get a cut of the money.

    i would be willing to bet thatover half these kids are taking money,its just that the ncaa only has a bug up thier butt for certain programs,and the more you win,the more people want to probe
    i dont think that justt cause bush had a few extra grand in his pocket,that,that made him play better,so the trojans still would have won whether he had the money or not,,,good day

    Faulk continues to excuse bad behavior and has no sense of rigth & wrong. The guy is clearly morally bankrupt.

    There’s so much wrong in his comments I don’t know where to start.
    I used to like Faulk. Not anymore. What ever happened to doing things the right way and accomplishing things through hard work and being honest? That’s why no one should ever consider Bonds the home run king.

    Most people would be happy taking the $100,000 education. Just shows the priorities of these idiots. Maybe a business or economics degree would allow you morons to manage your millions so you don’t have to rely on others 10 years after you leave the league.

  8. overkil2 says: Jul 2, 2010 9:03 AM

    It’s ridiculous what college football players have to live on. The universities make so much money off of them, they should get some type of cash to make it easier for them while they are there.
    It’s sad when you see that a college football player had to steal clothes because they couldn’t afford it(FSU). Give the guys a monthly allowance so they can eat and have some spending money.

    You’d have to be a dumbass not to take the money. The university gets millions of dollars, but you only get a scholarship to put your neck on the line? Even at the most expensive schools that only comes out to about $50k per year. And the most expensive schools aren’t the ones doing this, its the large ones (mostly state funded) that probably don’t even approach $30k yet.

    They do get a free education. Should the smart kids/real students who make a bunch of money for the university via research grants get a cut of that too?
    The athletes also get FREE coaching, FREE access to the weight room/training facilities and a FREE opportunity to showcase their skills for NFL teams.

    Ummm they do get spending money, and food money, and money for every other need. Football and basketball players at my college got more than enough for what they needed. If you want to argue that they should be paid more because they are being used to make tons of money for the school that’s a different argument. But its a well proven fact that athletes aren’t always the best at money management. They are taken care of pretty nicely.

    “tuition is like 25-50k depending on school.”
    @Big Stretch,
    A lot of colleges are more like 25-30k a year, not in total. And yes the schools make millions as do the coaches. Is it fair, probably not but a good college education is easily worth 100-150k these days.

    The revenues made from collegiate sports do not only go back into that specific sport, but also go into academic programs and funding other sports that do not generate revenue.

    NCAA is a joke. It is a sham and a shame. Everybody is making money except the players. The coaches get paid a fortune, the schools get paid, everybody but the players.
    Even the Olympics got rid of the utopian “amateur” athlete.

  18. BasicInstinct says: Jul 2, 2010 10:08 AM

    No car, no clothes, no traveling money. Yet College football is the minor league program for the NFL.
    Baseball actually has the Minor leagues, with at least four feeder teams for each club. And the guys sometimes make pretty good money if they are a top prospect.
    Our football feeder system is riddled with hypocrisy. Lord knows the “education” they offer is a total sham. Ask any unemployed college grad what their education is worth to them.
    Football players go to college to play at a higher level with hopes of not getting injured before they get drafted…which is extremely hard to avoid.

  19. NFL4EVER says: Jul 2, 2010 10:15 AM

    Lets not forget these College Athletes also get free Healthcare and access to Trainers & Medical Staff well beyond what the average student/civilian gets, and we all know what that’s worth these days.
    I’m not opposed to giving them some sort of stipend but these guys are taken care of for the most part.

    I love how most of you mention that academic programs will get cut, and the players get free education, blah blah blah.
    Why don’t you ask the players, who are the ones creating the opportunity for the schools to get money, what they really want. Do you think they want to be used so that coaches, deans, commissioners, etc…can make their tens of millions?
    It’s the biggest scam in the country and should be illegal. These kids are making billions for colleges and barely seeing anything. Risking injury and set-backs that can cost them millions in the pros, and for what? So all of the above mentioned people can get rich? So a school can have better academic programs? Whose right is it to say that these athletes don’t have a say, that the money is going to the schools and administrators?
    How would anyone here like it if their bosses just decided you would get paid what you needed to live, get a free education and that’s the end of the story?
    It’s easy to say these kids shouldn’t get paid when it’s not taking money out of your pocket, and it’s putting a great product on the field.
    Then, weasels like Carrol bolt somewhere else when the heat is coming on, leaving the team screwed out of bowl games and contention. But hey, he’s only made tens of millions exploiting these kids – they don’t deserve much…..

  29. Chusko says: Jul 2, 2010 10:50 AM

    Also, let’s not forget that the NFL and NCAA collude to keep these kids here for 3 years.
    And I think I read someone write something about geting free healthcare, was that a serious remark? These guys go out and kill themselves on the field, and getting free healthcare is a bonus or something? Ridiculous.
    Like I said, trying living your life by letting someone else tell you what you’re worth, although you and other teams produce billions each year.
    Should be illegal…..

    Those players also risk their health for FREE so colleges can get rich, oh yeah and on top of money from conference and bowl games colleges also get endorsement money for having the PLAYERS wear their equipment.
    @HarrisonHits
    Appreciate the clarification. per year was what I meant. I still think the players should get paid. I’m not talking millions but considering the revenue top schools make off their football programs it does not seem unreasonable for players to get $1000-$2000 per game. Perhaps if the players weren’t flat broke there wouldn’t be as much temptation to take money illegally.

  31. chc4 says: Jul 2, 2010 11:06 AM

    Most of the money schools make off the football programs go to cover other non-revenue sports like soccer, gymnastics, etc. Thanks to Title IX most athletic departments are barely in the black if at all. Only the elite 15-20 athletic programs turn huge profits. So using that as a reason to pay players is flat our wrong.

  32. CYGNUS X-1 says: Jul 2, 2010 11:19 AM

    I used to think that because they got a free ride that was all they needed also. then I had a relative get one of those free rides and let me tell you they earn every penny of it! I would love to see any of you people whining about it do what these kids do.get up at 4 to go run and work out for 2hrs. shower then head to class for the rest of the day. then head to practice,eat then try and study and do it all again the next day. at what point are they suppose to find time to get a job to get the money to go out and have fun like college kids do?if somebody buys them dinner then it’s a violation and they get in trouble. in the meantime the schools make millions off them.Texas football made 500 million last year alone but it’s wrong if these guys and thier families take money?somehoe I think st.florio would be singing a different tune if his son is lucky enough to get a free ride and his daddy wasn’t rich enough to get him whatever he wanted or needed.thier is probably a rule about how much you can give your own kid to. but I am sure st.mike would have no problem slipping his kid whatever he needed anyway.

  33. Bell63 says: Jul 2, 2010 11:22 AM

    What people forget in student athlete’s getting paid is, the student is benefiting way more than the cost of tuition. Being able to showcase their talent for professionals leads to these huge contracts. If student athletes think they are worth so much money, then can go join one of the many sports leagues that will take people at 18 years old.

    Yeah, and it’s your right to decide that these players just need to suck it up for other non-profitable teams/programs.
    I wouldn’t want to see other athletic programs go under, but instead of focusing on the players not getting paid, why don’t you focus on the coaches, deans, and commissioners not raking in their tens of millions each year? Why does this always come down to screwing over the players?

    If you think BB shouldn’t get COTY fine, if you want to whine about cameragate, fine (it was a violation, they deserved punishment, but it wasn’t the huge deal people think it is nor did it deserve THAT MUCH punishment)…but you only look like the tool you are when you condone things that you might have done or that don’t effect you when you chose to whine about them in the past.

    No doubt…..Marshall is just saying what most poor atheletes that attend the big time programs go through with being offered money, housing, cars, or whatever.

    Chusko — college players are AMATEURS. That’s just the way it is. As we’ve seen with Title 9, if they started paying football players, athletes in non-revenue sports would demand the same…. and the courts would back them up.
    As for coaches getting a ton of dollars, are you not in favor of free markets? They are professional coaches… it’s their job just like mine is sales. Guys like Saban and Mack Brown bring in a ton of money for their schools which in turn pays the bills for other sports. The elite coaches make big cash… I don’t see the problem with it. The best of the best in every industry make big coin. High school football in the south is big business. Should we consider paying those athletes too? Of course not.

    Put yourself in the position of a 19-year-old superstar college athlete. If you get offered money – and a good chunk at that – you’re more than likely going to accept it, even if you know it’s against the rules. Now, should that be considered the school cheating, the player cheating, or both? Either way, if a player gets caught taking money in college, is it realistcally going to affect their draft or pro status? Highly unlikely. You just have to avoid getting caught, but if you do, and you are in the position of the player, then big deal.

    Whats with all this “Free stuff” talk ?…ain’t nothing free…. The student athletes get stuff for a reason….When so-called “real” students put their bodies/careers/future pay in line for abuse they should see a bump in perks also…Question(s) should be, are they(students) compensated enough for what they bring to the table or are they being exploited more for the schools sake instead of their own interests?… maybe add a 3rd dimension?perhaps a surrogate/sponsership type of choice could be useful in the future for student athletes who don’t want the education but have a relative/friend who does, the education isn’t wasted and the athlete gets the normal perks the school now gives, plus maybe a small but fair % of the ticket sales in that team(sport) they play for and/or pay for insurance against inury…

    Fact is, I went to a major SEC school and know good friends who went to other major college football schools and it was common at ALL of the schools that players got money outside of what was allowed
    It isn’t shocking whatsoever

    Wait a sec, nobody forces them to take that deal, (and it’s such a bad deal, a full scholarship, room, board, books, free healthcare for 4-5 years) they know going in what the terms are, to still bitch and moan and look for handouts is just wrong.
    A Minor league system for the NFL like MLB has is needed.

    actually if you want to play d-1 sports, you do have to take the deal….which is a violation of the anti-trust statutes…ncaa controls the market…
    and its highly debatable whether they know what the terms and conditions are…ncaa is “lawyered up”…you are just a punk fan who thinks these minorities are “looking for a handout”…put your hood back on @sshole…

    the family never should have signed the LOI. they would be free to go to whatever school he wanted..The LOI is a sham, voluntary document which favors the institution and doesn’t benefit to the athlete…

    “Bush (allegedly)”….”just like Reggie Bush supposedly did” Florio, are you afraid of being thrown in jail?

    I didn’t think any members of the 2001 Rams still believe the “walk-through” rumor, Faulk included. That comment was from over two years ago when all kinds of rumors were flying around.
