"The NCAA's top decision-makers voted unanimously Tuesday to allow college athletes to profit from their name, image and likeness "in a manner consistent with the collegiate model."

A victory for American values, IMO.  Long overdue.  

 

Very curious to see how much they embrace this new model.  If it's just a symbolic concession and the rules they decide on are going to make it nearly impossible for players to earn money while remaining eligible, that'll be disappointing.

The devil will be in the details. Clearly a step in the right direction but I have strong fears that this will really widen the chasm between the P5s and G5s.  How are they going to put any kind of reasonable monetary restrictions in place? Or will it be open market?

Should they have monetary restrictions on the endorsement money a player for the Yankees can make versus a player on the Brewers?

 

Or another way, do they have monetary restrictions on the endorsement money an Olympic athlete can make versus a non-Olympic athlete?

I’m not sure it will. The good players go to the good schools, the rest get the pick of the 4 and 3 stars. Like it is now. It may even close the gap in the sense that a QB backing up at Clemson but is good enough to start anywhere else, could transfer to Boise so he can sell his jerseys and be the star and make money because no one wants Clemsons backup QB Jersey.

That's a really good point.

 

it'll be interesting to see how this all plays out, that's for sure. 

 

But either way, big step in the right direction - but I give the NCAA no credit for simply acknowledging that this is something they can't stop. Should've happened a long time ago.
