GAINESVILLE -- Will Muschamp derisively issued a no comment on the Johnny Manziel autograph scandal, but Florida’s coach did acknowledge he sees a day when college football players are paid for their efforts.
“I think eventually it’s going to happen. I don’t think there’s any question,” he said. “There’s no question our players need to have some spending stipend, cost of attendance, whatever they want to term it as,” he continued. “Obviously the money is there, so I think it’s obvious that’s something that needs to happen. When, I don’t know.”
