Players from at least three schools taped the letters APU to their wrists last week as a sign of solidarity with the National Collegiate Players Association, which is pushing for greater support for student-athletes from the NCAA. The letters stand for "All Players Unite."
The NCPA is not advocating that athletes be paid necessarily but it is pushing for schools to commit to things such as more fully guaranteed scholarships and making sure athletes' sports-related medical bills are paid for by the schools.
Several members of the Colorado football team said the subject hasn't gained much traction inside their locker room and coach Mike MacIntyre has not addressed it with the team.
Senior co-captain Derrick Webb said he supports the ideas behind the APU movement but he's unlikely to write the APU slogan on himself for a game.
"I feel like regardless of whether I join it or not, it's only a matter of time before that whole thing takes place," Webb said of the proposed changes.
