With the NCAA out of the picture, it’ll be up to each conference to set its own rules about education-related compensation.  Competition, in other words.

UPDATE:  Get a load of this horseshit.

    “Son, come play for State U and when you’re done, we’ll show you how to be an owner-operator of your own Big Rig!”

    “But coach, won’t I have a degree from State U?”
