Louisiana Lafayette Coach Billy Napier Requiring Players Donate School's Athletic Scholarship Fund
© Scott Clause-USA TODAY Sports
In kind of a bizarre move, Louisiana Lafayette head coach Billy Napier is making his players donate to the school's athletic scholarship fund...
quote:

UL football coach Billy Napier unveiled a new team rule in his normal mid-week August camp press conference Wednesday. Starting with the beginning of this school year, all scholarship UL football players will be required to be a minimal level $50 member of the RCAF. The rule will be optional for walk-on members of the squad.

...

“It’s all about gratitude,” Napier said.

Not to bad. That’s only sacrificing one night at the KEG

If he doesn’t, it will be because he takes a bigger job. Napier is legit.

I would have thought getting your 18 yr old brains bashed in for a coach making seven figures would be enough gratitude.

False. The players voted to do it. Non-story

The players get full cost of attendance to the tune of $7200 a year. They are asked to donate $50.

Bad idea, Billy.

And the players "voted on it"? Sure they did. Another bad idea, Billy.

I agree with it... roughly a dollar a week and they are on a full ride.
