John and Randy discuss the allegations of cheating and cash payment against Texas A&M from a transfer that should alarm all of college football. John read the laundry list of charges being alleged by the transfer student from Barrett Sallee article ‘ Former Texas A&M linebacker Santino Marchiol accused new TAMU coach Jimbo Fisher of multiple NCAA violations in a report by USA Today. Those allegations include cash payments from linebackers coach Bradley Dale Peveto to current players (in order to host prospects on unofficial visits), coaches running hands-on practices and study sessions far beyond the eight-hour-per-week limit allowed under NCAA rules, and a potential misdiagnosis of an ankle injury that resulted in pressure to play through pain.’ John and Randy talked about the nit-picking of the NCAA and how Santino Marchiof using a loophole made by the NCAA to get his transfer to another school without losing playing time. ​Randy doesn't think is going away anytime soon and it confirms that players should be getting paid.
