A College Football Quarterback Awkwardly Admits That He's "Getting Paid" To Play

 

There's only one word to describe the major post-game gaffe that University of Washington quarterback Keith Price made over the weekend: OOPS! While talking about his performance on the field and whether or not he's been nervous at any point during the season, the Huskies QB responded with this quote.

"This is what I'm supposed to do," he said. "This is what I'm getting paid for—to play."

Uh, wait. This is what you're getting paid for? As in, you're on salary or collecting cash? He paused awkwardly for a second and then quickly tried to take it back.

"Scholarship money," he said, letting out a laugh. "Scholarship money."

Hmmm...Well, that's certainly one way to make national headlines and get the NCAA on your tail. Enjoy the spotlight, homie! [via College Football Talk]
