We have always been at war with Eastasia.

Damn, it looks like we’ve had the NCAA all wrong.  It’s always been a friend to the working man or woman.  No, really.  Just ask Jack Swarbrick.

“Since regular students have the opportunity to exploit their name, image and likeness, we’ve always felt students who are athletes should have a version of that,” said Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick.

You guys sure have had a funny way of showing it, Jack.

    Let me get this straight: being paid to sign a NLI is a problem, but keeping the player under some car dealer’s thumb for four years so it doesn’t appear they were paid for play is OK.

    That’s one way to take care of your boosters.

    Aside from the girls of the southeast or other young ladies going wild, Who and where are all these “regular” students exploiting their name and likeness? 😁

    This has to be the dumbest statement I’ve ever read – or close to it. Exactly how do “regular” students get an opportunity to exploit their name, image and likeness? Yeah, Nike is pounding on the door to sign up all those Biology majors!
