La-Laf coach wants players to give to their foundation

Seriously. He wants his football players to join their version of the Razorback Foundation at a cost of $50 a year. Supposedly not mandatory, but we all know how that works. You join or else.

How tone deaf can this guy be? Athletes now being asked to pay to play, with the money going to the people who provide most of the coach’s salary? That’s going to show up in some legal transcript, guaranteed.

Yep…Bad idea. It is one thing to appeal to graduating players to donate. It is another thing entirely to “suggest” that current players essentially donate to the coach’s salary.

Talk about dumb PR. Beyond comprehension.
