In response to the question “Should college football players be able to license their name and likeness rights for profit?“, there’s a coach out there — presumably one making tons of money while making every time demand on his players the NCAA allows (and then some, likely) — who actually answered with this:
“No. I don’t like the way that’s going, to be honest, because I think we’re turning them into professional athletes. I’m not sure coaches deserve that right, either. I’d like to see us stay more of an amateur sport. From my view where I see college football going, everything is driven by money and it’s less like amateur sports. I think we’re losing the college atmosphere.”
Thoughts and prayers for you, bubba.
I can’t wait until he marches into the office of the president of his school and lays that down. I’m sure it’ll make a huge difference.
