This isn't about selling the free stuff they get from bowls. My guess is the NCAA still won't allow that.* However, if someone sells a jersey with their name and number on it then the athlete can get a cut. If they use their picture on, say, a video game then the athlete can get a cut.

*In my mind, if you give a kid something then it is theirs to do with as they wish. If you don't want them to do with as they wish then don't give it to them.
I think they'll fix that rule. I've always thought it was dumb, because I agree. It's their stuff.

Right. If you don't want them to do with it as they wish, don't give it to them until they leave. Otherwise, it's theirs.

My parents sponsored a hole-in-one contest for a recliner for a MDA golf benefit. A college kid hit a hole-in-one and won the recliner. He told my parents he was going to sell it because he needed the money. There were no rules keeping him from doing that. I can't remember, my parents may have just given him the cash for what the recliner was worth to save a delivery - that seems like something they would do.

I understand the sentiment, but it raises the same issue as no-show jobs. An OSU player might sell his Texas bowl jersey/swag for a hundred bucks, or maybe a grand to a monied alum. An Alabama player might get fifty grand from an alum, just so they can let recruits know they'll be taken care of.

Right. I think the solution, which I've proposed here before, is just to pay everyone. Everyone gets the same thing.

If the NCAA does proceed with players getting paid for their likeness, I would like to see it pan out like this. When anyone is recruited and signed to the university, at that moment they can either take the athletic scholarship, room/board, etc OR they can choose to be paid for their likeness. They would also not be allowed to change that decision later. That deal would likely make almost everyone but an elite few take the scholarship and would hopefully help keep some parity in college football.

I will bet it does otherwise to parity. Wanna take the bet?

Alabama and the blue bloods can only take on so many kids that wanna get paid. But they will get enough to tip the balance further their way.

The can of worms this opens up, is like said above, the no-show job situation. The NCAA can't police this. There's no way.

Correct, but relaxed transfer rules will also contribute to this situation, imo.

I agree with your other post, though, & don't see any way the NCAA can police this, at all. This is the no-show job situation on steroids.
