The hardest part is obviously going to be regulation, and I hear the arguments and how its geared to over-value colleges with corporate connections or the bad actors who will be deployed to find a recruiting advantage.

That's a tough logistical question, and the clearinghouse arm of the NCAA obviously has to take control and ensure that everyone is doing this type of stuff on the level.

But the NCAA has had DECADES to modernize and they have just allowed the gravy train to keep rolling as the viral age of marketing has hurt hundreds, maybe thousands of kids who could have been earning money based off their image and likeness.

The time is now, so forcing the NCAA to defend this in court is pushing them in the right direction to change.

There's all kinds of ways they could have regulated it. It could have given them 1k per month with the rest in a trust until the leave school or go pro with hardship allowances for their families. They could have solved this decades ago any number of ways, but they decided to take the hard line and public opinion on the NCAA has changed drastically and now they have to adapt unwillingly instead of in a method of their choosing.

If this is a state by state thing, then DeWine needs to get on the ball here. This is a huge recruiting advantage.

Indiana fires Archie Miller, but gets $10M from boosters to cover it under the guise of "philanthropic funding"

Under the table money beats over the table any day, Buckeyes still have the advantage.

That's cool to see their supporters step up like that in these trying times.
