I wonder what minor league football would pay the athlete? Anyone watch triple A baseball or d league basketball? Those players dont have it nearly as good as college athletes.
Dont give me this "people will watch" garbage. The reason we watch is we have a built in love for everything tOSU. Im not paying for the minor league football equivalent of the columbus clippers.
Not saying it is wrong to control your likeness, but I dont think it will help college athletics.

Wouldn't the e schools just need to add legal language to the LOI or create a legal document stating that the athlete agrees to grant the school the ability to license the likeness of the athlete?
Would this then become an anti-trust issue?
Wouldn't the NFL's rule requiring a player to be 3 years removed from HS be just as liable in am anti-trust suit?
I think people are overvaluing the players likeness in and of itself, and undervaluing the enhancement and exposure that said likeness receives through the players affiliation with the school. Put another way, how much of that value would the players likeness have without the affiliation with the school?
If these players likeness is really so valuable without the value added by the school, then why hasn't anyone founded a professional league without age restriction to capitalize on this value and provide fair compensation to the players?
