During a Tuesday interview with Pat McAfee, he said he worries about boosters getting involved and trying to buy influence. Watch his full comments below.

This is more or less what I’ve said could be the main problem. If autographs are legal, then what’s to stop a booster from paying a player or recruit $10,000 per signature?

It’s the main concern about college athletes being allowed to profit, and it’s a very real question.

If I’m a wealthy booster and my program wants a certain quarterback recruit, why wouldn’t I go offer that kid fat stacks of cash for signatures and photos?

I don’t give a damn about the actual autographs. I just need to put enough money in the player’s pocket to sign with me. It’ll be interesting to see how the NCAA regulates it.

Having said that, players have been taking money under the table forever. The idea that it hasn’t been happening is laughable.

It’s just going to be above board now.

Let us know in the comments if you agree with players getting paid. You know I do!
