DESTIN, Fla. (AP) -- Steve Spurrier has a plan to pay 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 $300 every game for expenses.
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.
Spurrier, Alabama's Nick Saban, Florida's Will Muschamp, LSU's Les Miles, Mississippi's Houston Nutt, Mississippi State's Dan Mullen and Tennessee's Derek Dooley signed the proposal. SEC Commissioner Mike Slive calls it a "generous gesture."
