Spurrier, others propose paying football players

DESTIN, Fla. (AP) — Steve Spurrier has a plan to pay football players — and it wouldn't cost schools or conferences a dime. South Carolina's head ball coach offered an interesting yet far-from-feasible proposal Wednesday that would give 70 players a $300 stipend every game. Spurrier acknowledged that the plan probably won't get very far at the Southeastern Conference's annual meetings or in the NCAA realm, but it could open the door for future dialogue on the issue of sharing millions in college football revenue with the guys who really make it happen.
