San Jose State to Stanford—’We’re tired of being your cheap cupcake’

Friday, September 6, 2013

Stanford coach David Shaw is taking issue with San Jose State coach Ron Caragher’s remarks earlier in the week that the football series between the schools is ending Saturday because Stanford wants it that way. Not true, says Shaw. Stanford really wants to beat up on play SJSU every year.

The rub—and this speaks to what college football has become—is money. Stanford pays SJSU a paltry $250,000 to show up at its place every year and take a beating (the game has been played at San Jose State only four times). That doesn’t pencil out for the Spartans. Not when they can be the patsy at, say, Auburn (this year) and earn six times more, or $1.5 million. Chronicle
