HBO’s Andrea Kremer talks about college players taking money
HBO Real Sports reporter Andrea Kremer joined the show to talk about her story on Auburn players taking money.
Kremer described her mindset going into the story: “You always hear and everyone assumes it happens, but how does it happen?”
Kremer said both the players and schools are culpable. “They system is broken,” Kremer said.
Kremer said that the player she talked to were all about the money, but they weren’t ready to handle it. They didn’t focus on their education, and now they have nothing.
Kremer did say she had a lead on Cam Newton news, but the person she wanted to talk to asked to get paid and there were some other problems.
Kremer said that this is a cash business, so it’s a “he said-he said” scenario, and it’s hard to prove anything.
Kremer also brought up an interesting point. She talked to mid-level players. Kremer wondered what the big stars are getting.
