The ongoing Ed O'Bannon vs. the NCAA trial is stealing most of the college sports headlines, mostly because it could change the entire landscape of "amateur" athletics as we know it. But as recruiting season continues and Michigan State hosts kids of all ages for camps and recruits for visits, the football team is already taking advantage of an amended NCAA rule. For the first time, football players can be paid to work at the aforementioned camps, and the Spartans are using that not only as a way to make some money, but also as a teaching and recruiting tool.

That's a step in the right direction, I suppose.

This makes so much sense, I'm surprised the NCAA is cool with it.

I thought that was kind of understood, no?
