LaMichael James reacts to Ducks auctioning off his jerseys (stay classy Oregon)

While LaMichael James is preparing for the NFL draft that starts tomorrow, Oregon is busy auctioning off his jersey and that has the former Ducks running back talking.


The auction is part of an effort by the school to eliminate an inventory of used uniforms and also make a little money.

A green jersey worn by James has already passed $600, which led him to express his dismay on Twitter.

ilove the university but the amount of money they have made off me I could buy several educations lol am I a donor now? image

James isn't the only former Oregon player unhappy. Nate Costa told The Register-Guard the school policy forces players to purchase their jerseys. He borrowed money from his parents to make sure none of them went on auction.

"We just don't feel it's right," Costa said, speaking for several players. "You have to buy your own jersey and if you don't, they'll sell your own jersey to make a profit."

The auction is sure to start debate about how schools reap financial gain while the students receive only an education.

James, however, didn't seem to be making a larger point about that topic. He followed his first comment on Twitter with the following:

With that being said I don't think college players should be paid that much more. 18-20 yrs with money hmm trouble lol I have two views

Now we know why they have a new jersey every week image

NCAA doesn't allow schools to give them the jerseys, so the players have to bargain with the school. Oregon isn't the only school that does this. They just made a website to sell the stuff and it 's getting a lot of publicity.

Not sure why the dude whose team is coached by Lane Kiffin is talking about class though.

No, I don't think the schools are allowed to give them anything. At least I know not helmets or pants either. And I think the schools have to sell them the jerseys for at least a $100 a piece or something like that. Mark Asper was talking about he can't even afford to drive to Eugene from Idaho until he gets drafted (and that's an if too).

In most cases you can take whatever you want. Schools typically keep the most popular guys sh*t so they can make money off of it or hold on to it in case the player blows up and they use it years later to enshrine them into the school's hall of fame or other things along those lines.

It's very rare to see guys leave college sports and not get to take at least one uniform with them.
