Endorsement Pay
I really don’t have a problem with endorsement pay or selling your likeness if it can be regulated, which seems to be tricky. I do have a problem with universities just paying players.

Dittos. Do it right and will be a good thing. Do not want the bigs to just pay off players with no regulations.

I believe the Big Five are already paying stipends above and beyond the athletic grants. But, likely all on the team are getting the same amount. This selling your likeness could create some unusual disparity. How many offensive linemen, for example, could line up endorsements like those of star offensive players? Since the NCAA is against this, seems they could have difficulty regulating it. Is all this headed to court?

If paying athletes (not just allowing them to sell their images on their own) results in an employer-employee relationship between the university and the athlete that opens up a whole can of worms...are they benefit eligible? are they subject to the rules of the Fair Labor Standards Act? etc.

RE: Endorsement Pay
Tennessee State Senator Brian Kelsey has announced plans to introduce legislation in the next session that would permit college athletes in Tennessee to be paid for endorsement deals. He says his legislation will follow the California law and be similar to laws under consideration in Florida, South Carolina, and Illinois.

Generally agree. Because of Title IX, paying athletes in any sort of equitable fashion is virtually impossible. Allowing them to tap into the market for their own likeness, however, is a great way for them to capitalize on their fame without impacting the bottom line for universities.

A lot of the consternation from the NCAA on this is overblown. I honestly don't think it changes much.

RE: Endorsement Pay
Overall, I could support endorsement deals. Of course offensive linemen couldn't line up endorsement deals the same as the star players, just the same as they wouldn't be paid as much if they go to the NFL, and that is just life. If your likeness doesn't have any market value, which is the case for almost all college players, then you shouldn't make any money. I strongly oppose any type of college directly paying the players, and this could be a good compromise where only those who really deserve to be paid would be.

My concerns:
1) We are already increasingly in sports world of putting the player above the team. Just yesterday, the starting running back and the starting quarterback for Rutgers told their coach to quit playing them the rest of the year so they would be eligible for a redshirt since they had only played 4 games. I hate seeing that kind of thing, and this may increase that overall mentality.

2) What happens when a apparel company sponsors a player, but the team has a deal with a competing company? What happens when Pepsi sponsors a player, but the school has a deal with Coke? The logistics of regulating that kind of thing would seem to be difficult.
