Mullen needs all the help he can get.
takes the governor to finally level the playing field with those programs.
It's they can gain endorsements, not they the university pays them. They can use their likeness to make money. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signs bill that allows college athletes to earn endorsements
They already get paid in Bama and other places so....
Like they cant get endorsement money elsewhere too? Pathetic when we have a twitterer beggimg players to at least comsider Goofy Ass Dan.
I get that you don't like CDM and have never liked him. What I don't get are two things: (1) despite your proven history, you sometimes post as if you are surprised. Why? (especially recruiting which even those of us who don't follow closely knew he couldn't do.) (2) I am not trying to be mean, but I think that I detect a "wingey" quality in your football posts that you rightly decry in the Political Forum. Isn't that inconsistent?
I'm sure the university will figure out a way to force the football players to share their endorsement money with the girls soccer team.
I'm cool with it. Even though Alabama probably just gave everyone a raise after hearing this
Can’t wait for the college football video game to return.
may not happen. it'd probably take a union to make it easy. Or they could just pay a few guys per team and to hell with the rest
Isn’t this just an empty gesture because the NCAA bylaws over-rule it?
In what way? How would an organizational by law overule a state law?
Uhhhhh.... let's say it is legal to have brownies in your state. You join the International Organization of Cookie Cutters who demand that you never have any other baked dessert. Is it illegal for them to ban someone who also cooks or eats brownies? Probably not. Even though brownies are legal. The NCAA has many rules saying athletes cant do things that are legal under state laws (ie take certain OTC or prescription meds they consider enhancers.) State laws usually don't limit an association from making some more restrictive regulation or bylaw. Groups are generally allowed to make more restrictive rules. The SEC has some rules that are more restrictive than the state laws and even more restrictive than NCAA. Im not sure the NCAA wants to fight though. In fact, Im pretty sure they don't. They seem to be taking a knee on everything. Here is the whole bill if you want to read it. It seems to ban "a secondary institution" from limiting the players from being compensated. So, if NCAA kept it's current rules, UF and the others schools would have to leave the NCAA... which I'd prefer. https://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2020/646/BillText/er/HTML
That’s really my point. The entirety of this law is to neuter the NCAA. The NCAA bylaw, or whatever it is, is not going to override the state of Florida.
I think @GatorJ started drinking early today. Easier example: state law allows recreational pot here. No one is interested in enforcing the federal law prohibiting pot use. Yet, athletes can not smoke pot and continue to be on the team. Another example: no lettuce use for this military member even though state law allows it. It’s in the “terms of employment”, otherwise known as the UCMJ.
You’re missing the point. They will not be able to compete in NCAA sponsored events if they accept money for endorsements unless the NCAA changes its rules.
NCAA Board of Governors has already said they approve of this though and are going to change the rule. I'd care much other than wanting my EA Football back. The only video game I ever loved.
I think this order comes prior to NCAA implementation, correct? Edit: never mind, I guess the change goes into effect for the 2021-22 academic year. Thought it was 2022. Back to my bottle, I guess.
