Northwestern QB: We are paid to play

Northwestern quarterback Kain Colter testified that he was essentially paid to play via his scholarship as the National Labor Relations Board opened a closely watched hearing on a bid to form what would be the first union for college athletes in US history. From a witnesses stand in a federal court building, Colter characterized playing college football as a job and said schools make clear that athletics are a higher priority than academics. When asked why Northwestern gave him a scholarship of $75,000 a year, Colter responded: ‘‘To play football. To perform an athletic service.’’ The 21-year-old is a co-founder of the newly formed College Athletes Players Association . . . Mississippi football players Denzel and Robert Nkemdiche are being sued for $2 million after allegedly beating a man at a fraternity party last year.

The Ole Miss administration said it supports the brothers, saying an investigation by authorities found no wrongdoing by any members of the team . . . Georgia safety Josh Harvey-Clemons, who missed the Gator Bowl following his second suspension of the season for an undisclosed violation of team rules, was dismissed from the team. Harvey-Clemons had 66 tackles as a sophomore in 2013.
