Virginia Tech’s defensive coordinator, Bud Foster, is one of the most respected coaches in the game. Foster is considered the “coach-in-waiting” in Blacksburg. He is so valuable to the Hokies, they made him the highest paid assistant in college football. But being “football smart” isn’t the same thing as being “smart” — as evidenced by Foster’s dumb idea below:

Fining players cost-of-attendance money, which is a little over $3,000 per year, is stupid. Over a nine-month school year, that’s a little under $100 a week — which is nothing. Football players are far more valuable than three grand, which is why the school can afford to pay Foster $1.3 million a year. But at least Bud realizes his players aren’t employees, right?

Jesus, what a dumbass. Bud, in the real world, employees make money for the work they do, and if someone else is willing to pay them more, they can leave and go work there instead — without sitting out a year (assuming they didn’t sign a non-compete). Also, what recruits do you think are going to want to come play for a coach who might take away the small amount of money they earn? Foster is making it so easy for opposing coaches right now, it’s insane.

It didn’t take long for Virginia Tech’s athletic director to recognize Foster’s ridiculous comments and shut him down immediately:

Perhaps the AD should fine him, too.
