The FBI has revealed that top players from top college programs have accepted money from coaches and agents. One of the big ones is Arizona standout Deandre Ayton accepted $100,000 from head coach Sean Miller, according to reports.

Scott feels for the players because they don't get support from anyone in college financially and the universities are making millions of dollars and the student athletes can't have jobs and have to focus a lot of their time on the sport they compete in.

Scott Mitchell and Jason Buck, hosts of Rivals are past football rivals at the university and professional level, come together to talk life and sports. Scott Mitchell was a record-setting quarterback at the University of Utah. He then went on to play for Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, Baltimore Ravens, and Cincinnati Bengals. Jason Buck was drafted out of Brigham Young University in the first round of the NFL draft. He played on the defensive line for Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Redskins. He earned a Super Bowl ring in the Redskins victory over Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVI.
