NCAA votes to allow athletes to profit off likeness
Players about to get Paid

For all the mouth breathing fools that said (1) it'll never happen, and (2) it's going to ruin the sport - time to go suck some tit and call your pastor - we're marching towards 2020 and no one gives a shite about your outdated values.

In all seriousness- This is going to be great for the athletes, and the schools. It'll also affect less people than you think. The NCAA getting ahead of this following California's law changes allow them a runway to really curtail impropriety. It will also give pause for some young athletes to stay in school a bit longer, provided they're not a slam-dunk pro like Julio Jones or Colin Sexton. This was going to happen. I'm a bit surprised it was announced now, but, I think the pressure from state's with blue-chip programs like California and North Carolina expedited the process.

Hopefully, we can get some local businesses to pony up and make our boys some money.

Roll Tide!

Great news. Now we can easily buy players.

If all the Tuscaloosa businesses aren't currently reaching out to 5* recruits and promising them deals, then they need to be shut down.

This will be the kiss of death for the southern teams in smaller markets. Get ready for California to dominate. But I’m sure you don’t see that.. I hope you don’t really think Alabana can compete with LA on sponsoring players. Wonder if this will have an impact on Bryce Young

I also wonder if recruits will look to schools that play more often in prime time games. For example, will this hurt teams in the Pac 12 (#Pac12AfterDark) and the Big 12 (they play a lot of games at 12pm EST)?

It'll be interesting to see how conferences handle their tv contracts and kickoff time schedules within the conference.

Lee County has enough Yella lumber $$ to keep going for a while. Welcome back Longhorns!

The NCAA couldn't control the money flow when it wasn't allowed. This will be chaos.

Maybe we can get players $$ for appearing on the barbershop episodes!! ESPN/Disney $$ put to good use!

I wonder how Saban will handle this now.. like freshman can’t talk to the media.? This will change a lot of ways things are done. I also wonder if this will be his exit as it becomes too much like the NFL

I've been thinking I'll retire when Saban does. I'll still be a bama fan, but football is getting less and less interesting to me, and this rule might accelerate that.

That wasn't his problem with the NFL. As long as he has god like control here over the program, he's fine.

LOL. It hasn't even been implemented yet and you're acting like everything is sunshine and rainbows.

re: NCAA votes to allow athletes to profit off likeness
Part of the control is the players.. if we have players doing commercials during game weeks.. how will Saban like that?or if they are worried about jersey sales, or contract endorsements.. He is all about focus and this will add another distraction. I’m not saying he can’t adjust.. just wondering if he will want to.

I'm just concerned that the NCAA won't go far enough.

They didn't.

Yahoo Sports Twitter

The NCAA isn't allowing athletes to get paid. The NCAA is buying time.

quote:

On Tuesday, the NCAA made a major announcement, and at first glance, it felt like a doozy.

In a post to the NCAA.org website, the association’s board of governors announced that they had “voted unanimously to permit students participating in athletics the opportunity to benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness in a manner consistent with the collegiate model.”

Again, at first glance, this seems like a huge deal. The state of California had just passed a law allowing college athletes the chance to monetize their likeness, and it appeared, from that opening paragraph at least, that the NCAA was following suit.

But pause, and read closely the last few words of that opening paragraph: “in a manner consistent with the collegiate model.” That’s a very sneaky rhetorical move right there. The collegiate model doesn’t allow athletes to get paid, so what does it mean to have athletes earn off their likeness in a manner consistent with the collegiate model? Who knows!

And then read the next paragraph:

The Board of Governors’ action directs each of the NCAA’s three divisions to immediately consider updates to relevant bylaws and policies for the 21st century.

This is where things get a bit hairy. I’ll admit I had to read it a few times to even understand what it meant. When I finally got it, I almost had to tip my hat to the NCAA: This is a classic bit of double speak that anyone who’s covered the association knows well. It’s one of their finest efforts so far.

The Board of Governors did not make a change to NCAA bylaws which makes it legal for athletes to make money off their likeness.

The Board of Governors issued an “action” which tells their three divisions — DI, DII, and DIII — to “consider updates.” Basically, they are ordering the divisions to think about things.


This changes nothing. This is the formation of some working groups. We might even get a subcommittee out of it. The funny thing is, they’ve already done this. In May, the NCAA announced that it had formed a working group to consider the question of compensation for athlete likeness.

They’ve now apparently had their working group, and have come up with the action to … form more working groups. This time the working groups are at the divisional level.

It’s nonsense. It’s nothing. It’s a statement for a statement’s sake. Really smart writers who have devoted their lives to the subject couldn’t make heads or tails of what it was saying, because that was the point.

“We must embrace change,” Michael V. Drake, chair of the board and president of Ohio State University, says in the statement. The statement then lists a bunch of bullet points about how they shouldn’t change all that much, or too fast, and also who knows how long it will take them to decide what to do.

The NCAA wants you to think it is embracing change, but that’s not what is happening. Change is being forced upon the NCAA; California has passed a bill, and there appears to be bi-partisan support for similar proposals in other states. This is the NCAA trying to change the narrative, get out in front, buy some time and ensure that the change takes a while and is incremental. It’s a stall tactic, full stop.

Don’t be fooled. This doesn’t change anything, not yet. This is a committee announcing the formation of more committees. Advocates for college compensation may take this incremental step as a win, but again, this is only an incremental step. College athletes have a long way to go before they can get compensated in any way.

re: NCAA votes to allow athletes to profit off likeness
I imagine that NCAA policy will be MUCH stricter than the various state bills being introduced. Apparently the NCAA felt that they would have to bend and make some concessions, but I'll bet that their policy is going to have few allowances compared to what the states are after. I believe they're trying to show the ability to compromise, while making their guideline very stringent.

Then here's to saving some money on coaching salaries.
