They’ve put a group together to explore it.  Things like video games and such.  Even colleges using their likeness in advertising.  So it begins.  What a recruiting pitch.  Stud QB, RB, WR whatever it may be….hey come to my school.  You’ll do well anyway, whats your image made into a graphic with your game stats each week to the NCAA, it’s normal.  And you’ll get paid for it.

I can see so many work arounds for this to funnel tons of money.  The NCAA would have to make super strict rules for this to not get out of hand.

I think it’s a good thing, but there will have to be a decent amount of compliance to ensure these things are at arms-length. If the owner of the Esso Club wants to pay Trevor Lawrence $5,000 to do a 30-second radio ad read, I don’t think there’s any harm done.

Paying for likeness off video games or jersey sales I can begrudgingly live with.  I don’t want to see a time where a player asks a coach if he can miss practice to shoot an ad spot, or attend an autograph signing to pick up a few bucks.  I know the response will be a coach wouldn’t allow that.  Maybe Dabo or Nick Saban wouldn’t but would a coach struggling to keep his job allow his golden boy to do that or else?

These kids are living and practicing in palaces. They have food 24-7, barbershops, bowling alleys, nap rooms, etc…Oh yeah and that whole free education.  A kid can kid a full ride and still receive a Pell grant if I am not mistaken than can be spent as a stipend.

I can see the use of their image as being something they shouldn’t have to give up. I can also see this getting very dirty. It creates a way for donors to funnel money to players.

I struggle to see them allowing this and it not being abused as an avenue for boosters to pay kids.  “Sure I need 300 of Tua’s jerseys, thanks!!”. 

The only half ass idea I can think of is group all D1 or P5 schools into one payment pool and the combined.  Split it evenly across all players.  A Scholarship + sales system. 
I can already hear the bitching either way. 


Maybe every position group gets a maximim amount they can make from ads or signatures to keep it even from school to school.
QB1- $5000
QB2 - $2500
RB1- $4000

If Trevor can just make 5k doing a 30 second ad for anyone who ask then the system is broken and Clemson might as well quit playing because the schools with the biggest boosters will buy every player in the country. 
RB1 - $3000

What about just increasing the stipend they already get?  This way you can get them more money and still keep it regulated.  It’s a slippery slope though, you’ll start getting into raising every X number of years.

As long as it’s even go for it.  How does the stipend work with title 9?  Everyone gets it now?

I’d be great if the amount of money that the players received for their images etc dwarfed the amounts that crooked boosters payed players. Initially the rich would get richer but ultimately imo it would created parity in which the likes of college football has never seen.

Where exactly do you think the “likeness” money would come from? 

How is Pitt going to buy anywhere near as many jerseys as tOSU to create money for its athletes?  It wont.

I think in reality, there really is only a few hundred players nationwide who have a market. I too think the line is drawn somewhere between likeness and jersey sales, and local car dealerships or other businesses just paying players for no work.

I also think pro leagues should continue to develop minor league systems like the G league and maybe the XFL. Millions will still watch college sports even if some of the best players move to the minors. Sioux Falls or Charleston teams don’t overshadow Ohio St no matter who plays for them.
