If you’re happy with good enough, then good enough is what you’ll be. Greatness requires the expectation of excellence.

I can’t wait to see my school’s QB selling cars on TV! Seriously, it is a way for the NCAA to allow this and not be involved in the details. They’ll probably put a cap on it, but otherwise it’s up to the conferences and schools.

The bright spot is EA may bring out another NCAA game now.

I don’t like it but I knew it was coming.  I don’t see how the college model can be preserved.

I think the NCAA should require all “paid” athletes to disclose their income sources to assure whatever compliance so the people that are paying for these endorsements is known to all.  These kids are going to need accountants and tax experts and of course agents that will undoubtedly lock horns with coaches at some point.

This will likely take 10+ years to get fleshed out and it will have many ugly points.  In the end it may ruin CFB.  Honestly the best bet for the NCAA to keep things “even” is putting a luxury tax of sorts on player earnings that funnel money back to smaller schools. 

I know Dabo isn’t a fan of paying players but if he doesn’t grab this by the horns and go with it he could permanently damage Clemson ability to compete nationally going forward.  Financially we’re not a “big dog” but we could run with them given our current standing.  If we lose it it may be impossible to get back.

The genie is out of the bottle and even Dabo and Saban can’t put it back in….Any coach that comes out against this will be hurt in negative recruiting as being anit-player..The best thing guys like him can to is to strive for rules that keeps this out of recruiting and a process that doesn’t destroy the College model.

Mitt Romney said something as a cautionary tale to be mindful of:

College sports can’t have a “couple of athletes on campus driving around in Ferraris while everybody else is basically having a hard time making ends meet

This isn’t like the pros where everyone is getting paid something..at the college level only a few people will be able to make some significant money unless some type of revenue sharing occurs.

There are so many pitfalls that can damage the game that it’s impossible to predict how this is going to play out…My guess is it will be about as successful as the transfer portal and the targeting rule.
