Funny thing is the NCAA only helped him get his name out there more by doing this.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
Pretty stupid that a kid can play pro baseball, earn money yet still play football.
How does the NCAA "Own" his likeness? It's not like he's posing for pictures in his Minnesota uniform asking people to buy his music. He's not using the school to boost sales. Ridiculous...
Yeah the NCAA needs to go away those guys are a joke.
NCAA hypocrites need to go! They wanna talk about LOIC it is within there own committee!
Big lawsuit out there that the athlete's have a good shot at Winning on how the NCAA uses there likeness without being comped for it. I see the coming down on the NCAA.

Killing SCUM just to watch it die!!!!....."De Oppresso Libre"
Reminds me of the skier at CU that had to give up his sponsors to be eligible to play football.
Which is different from playing professional baseball how? That's the whole problem, the wishy washy ways of the NCAA...No steadfast consistent penalties for rules violations as each one is dealt with differently with a different punishment. Look at USC and their penalties, now with Miami, very similar violations but I'll wonder if the punishment will be the same, less or more. The NCAA needs to make a "Rules Sheet w/ Penalties" and stick to it. If you have a player get paid something and anyone on staff knows about it, Boom, 5 schollies lost and 2 bowl games. If coach "sets up" the payments, Boom death penalty.
Whatever the penalties are, they need to be consistent.
There is no professional sking.
Just like track, these "amature" athletes use sponsors to train outside of school. Thwy can letter in track and keep their sponsors.
My point was if a kid can be a "professional" baseball player, which is to get paid for his talents in that sport, a skiier by getting endorsements is technically a professional skiier as he is getting paid (endorsements) for his talents. If one is legal with NCAA why in the world wouldn't the other. As long as the kid isn't getting "paid" for his football talents it should have no bearing on his football eligibility.
I was a PGA Golf Professional, after I left the profession I applied for and received my amateur status back. If I were to give a lesson to someone and accept payment, I forfeit my amateur status and am deemed a professional again, (this would apply to anyone that accepts payment for lessons) This long explanation to argue that a skiier that gets paid (by endorsements) could technically be deemed a professional skiier.

Jeremy Bloom that's when I started hating the the NCAA and my disdain has only grown over the years for that corrupt organization.
ncaa=ioc (international olympic committee). They are either stupid or corrupt.
I say get a lawyer and ram 'um.
The NCAA has a lot of rules like this that are put there because the shadiest of schools/boosters will take advantage of it if they don't. It's like the one kid in your elementary school class who couldn't behave himself and got some privilege taken away for everyone.
In this case, I suspect the rule is there so the Alabamas and the LSUs of college athletics don't have a bunch of fans/boosters paying off a kid by buying whatever he makes and passes off as art.
One would think that there could be special case-by-case exceptions made, but that is something the NCAA is not very good at.
It doesn't matter if there are rules or not. They will be broken by those who don't care. They funneled benefits to kids before the rules and they're still gonna do it after the rules. Punish individuals, not teams or whole schools for crying out loud. If you're involved...SEE YA! Bowl bans and stuff like that is STUPID! You don't even punish the people that were the trouble makers but the ones weren't proven to be involved have to suffer. Man, I hate the NCAA!
I believe the only way to stop rules violations is something we will never see. Imagine if the NFL said, "If you break NCAA rules, you will be left out of the NFL draft for that year"...
Now, obviously that will never happen, can't happen, shouldn't happen, BUT that is the only thing that may get these players to turn down that $100 handshake as it could cost them millions...
