The NCAA does not allow boosters to pay players either. I think they are more concerned with the boosters paying the athletes than the school. The school already gives then tuition, room and board, and books. But if a booster can endow the coaching position at a school, why not endow payments to 40 scholarship positions. If the athletes can be paid, which other NCAA rules are you worried about.The bill is specifically written to allow “athletes to sell their image and likeness to outside bidders” (outside bidders=not the school).
In addition, this bill did not dissolve the NCAA so the school’s would still be subject to the NCAA’s rules and, I’m not if you’re aware or not, but the NCAA does not allow schools to pay players.
C’mon, you went to Notre Dame, you must be smarter than this.
