I write in response to an article "Spurrier: Pay the 'performers' -- give players $300 a game" which appeared in the A section of The State newspaper June 2, in which Steve Spurrier, head football coach at USC in Columbia, "proposed a resolution at the SEC's spring meetings that would pay college football players in the conference $300 per game, with the money coming out of the head coaches' pockets."
