Kentucky coach Joker Phillips had a bit of a different answer when asked about his opinion of giving college athletes a $2,000 per year stipend over their athletic scholarship.
“You don’t want to know what I think. I agree that players should way we can pay them. But I am not willing to supply more tattoos, more dogs, more cell phones,” Phillips said. “I’ve had kids come up with a new tattoo on their arm and ask them what it cost and he’s told me $250 and it wasn’t finished yet.
“I would like to put money aside for retirement for them. But I am not one that wants to give $2,000 more and now a player will have four body tattoos and two bulldogs. I would love to see the money put aside for retirement or something.”
