This story appears in the Nov. 30 issue of ESPN The Magazine.

The AP and coaches have let us know what they think. Isn't it way past time to hear from those who matter most? We got 100 players from 23 Division I conferences to come clean on every topic from gamblers and agents to coaches and cheerleaders. And all we had to do was promise to keep their names and schools to ourselves.

You can start with the first question right here or you can jump to any question below. And don't forget to see how your own answers stack up next to the players and the rest of Sportsnation via the embedded polls on each page.
