The players get a free ride to school with academic counseling available, and also get a stipend for travel and miscellaneous expenses. Michigan provides about $2,500 per semester and SEC schools provide about $5,000 per semester. (The rationale for SEC players getting that much more is questionable, but that is another subject).
Kudos to the SEC for not being cheapskates like Ann Arbor.
No, its about following the rules rather than abusing them. I guess its being a cheapskate when you honor a scholarship even though a player becomes medically ineligible to play, right?
