    Big XII leading the way

    http://www.cbssports.com/collegefoot...e-and-likeness

    Small steps, but steps nonetheless. I think they're starting to see the writing on the wall. The NCAA model is outdated, misguided, and possibly illegal. 5 years from now, college athletics are going to be a lot different.

    Re: Big XII leading the way

    Paying athletes for their names and likenesses is absolutely correct. The mutually beneficial agreement happens on the field -- George gets training and coaching and, in return, George delivers a high level of play. It is a sham that ISU could sell Jeremiah George jerseys and profit off of him in ancillary goods like merchandise.

    Re: Big XII leading the way

    Creating a workable model that pays players while sustaining the NCAA's precious 'competitive equity'...well, officials don't seem ready to go there yet.
    This. Somebody needs to explain to me how we start paying players for their likeness and name, and not expect that the major players like tOSU, Alabama, FSU, OU, Texas - who already dominate the money game, won't actually increase their advantage when they can afford to pay more for a likeness.

    Seems to me that once the money starts getting handed out, it'll be way to easy to funnel more and more to the top players. And as such - we may as well let the top 10 (money) programs just play in their own league, because there will be no chance at parity.

    Stupid argument. They can still only roster so many players and a lot of those players are going to go to one of those "10" schools anyway.

    But ISU also gave George the platform to showcase his talents and now he's making 6-7 figures.

    If it happens that is exactly what will happen. I like the idea, in theory, for paying players but still haven't seen a model that won't make the rich a lot richer.

    So you think if Allen Lazard could get paid in college, he's not going to the highest bidder? Which almost certainly isn't ISU?

    We're lucky when we get a top prospect. Throw money into the equation - we have no chance. This happens, and we may as well another division because the "have nots" will be even worse off.

    And I'm not saying kids in college shouldn't get a little something - but IMO it has to be even across all, and not some sort of tiered system.

    Do you think Lazard didn't have the option of taking some money from someone and do you think under a different system ISU wouldn't offer the same for someone like him?

    Right. This is the issue I have BUT it's a different issue. I don't like that people don't consider the opportunity these guys are given to showcase and that people don't consider the value of a degree, but likeness is a different issue.

    Huh? You really don't think big schools being able to pay big money is going to create even worse parity then there already is in college football?

    Well - right now he can't take money by rule. So there's a consequence he's perhaps not willing to accept.

    But if it's within the rules, and somehow contingent upon worth (whatever you want to call it, but not equal among all players, all schools) then there's a bidding war. And you really think ISU could offer as much (to as many players) as an Alabama or Texas or X other schools.

    The competitive gap will open even further. Worse yet, once this happens in FB, it'll extend to every other sport too and we can then kiss a lot of top prospects in MBB goodbye as well.

    Face it - money corrupts everything and we don't have the money.

    Re: Big XII leading the way

    The only model that works IMO is the so-called Division 4, where total revenue is spilt evenly and divided among everyone on that level equally. Every athlete and every school receives the same amount, sort of like the NFL's merchandise agreement. Do the Cowboys sell more stuff/generate more interest than the Jags? Of course they so. All teams divide it evenly though. Without an agreement like this, the same universities that can offer the most money will always dominate recruiting and any semblance of a fair competition is out the door.

    I dont think any of this ever happens though. Schools like Texas make it's money, schools like Texas will want to keep its money.

    Paying players is actually an equalizer (especially if done with a salary cap). Look at recruiting the past 30-50 years- it is not an open market now, as the currencies are tradition, location, and arms-race spending. Paying players removes barriers to entry. It is a lot easier for a school to sneak in a better offer last minute than change tradition or location.

    You guys aren't getting it. Where are the best recruits going right now? They are already going to those programs. They will just get paid more by going to them now. When's the last time we beat those guys for a recruit under the current system? The recruit distribution would be the same. There are only so many spots at those schools. It's not like they can just pay however many players they want and it wouldn't surprise me to see scholarship limits reduced slightly actually increasing parity.

    This I agree with as well. And I expect that the NCAA and other institutions will try to circumvent this by no longer allowing such likenesses. But that train has already left the station.

    What are some examples of where Jeremiah should get some $$ for use of his likeness? Or even go back to Seneca, probably the most marketable ISU FB in recent memory.
