Former UNC player Deunta Williams says the SEC pays for its players

Former UNC safety, Deunta Williams isn’t too happy about the punishment the NCAA handed down to the school. Williams was suspended 4 games in 2010 for accepting improper benefits, but says that it’s not even close to what the SEC does.

“What happened at Carolina is child’s play compared to what happens at the SEC,” Williams said. “The SEC pays for players. I’m not afraid to say it, but the NCAA doesn’t go after them.” Williams felt like the NCAA tried to make an example out North Carolina but ignores the real issue.

“It’s a broken system,” said Williams, a four-year starter who graduated in 2010. “College football is a business, and the people who run college football are only interested in money and using the players as product to make money.

“That’s the frustrating part about it. The NCAA is crucifying players to keep the system going and the NCAA doesn’t have to answer to anybody.”
