The NCAA votes to allow college athletes to benefit from their name, image, and likeness….how is this going to look?

-Here come endorsement deals! Everything could go into effect by January 2021 possibly…Jake and Sip discussed this in the past and were both generally opposed to it, but maybe Jake has changed his mind…

-Maybe this is the only way for Nebraska to truly recruit like they want to—open up the pocketbook, baby! However, that probably wouldn’t be too popular with Tom Osborne…

-Also, Adrian Martinez looks like he’s going to play on Saturday! What should we expect from him?

The NCAA is fighting back on transfer policies and getting back to strict measures again

-NCAA brass met in Indianapolis on Wednesday to review and announce ‘minor adjustments’ of its transfer policies, deciding to go away with the 2018 rule that allowed certain transfers immediate eligibility based on a waiver

-Is this the way it should be in the NCAA? Feels like it’s free agency if players are allowed to leave and play right away. There’s always been a desired happy-medium, but what is the best way to get to that point?

California wants college players to be compensated for their likeness, but the NCAAwants to ban the state’s schools from NCAA Championships if that happens…will anything ever change?

-A proposed California bill would allow college athletes in the state to start earning compensation for the use of their name, image, or likeness beginning in 2023, but the NCAA is fighting against it, and is threatening to not allow any California schools to compete for NCAA Championships if that is the case

-Will there ever be unity in all of this? Schools and athletes won’t stop pushing, but will the NCAA ever stop pushing back?

Early Break:The hype is high again for Nebraska Football—CBS Sports’ puts the Huskers at 17th

  • We’ll probably hear this be a common narrative among sportswriters throughout the spring and summer, and we’ll continue to question it until we see proof of a team that can immediately go from two years of 4-8 to becoming a team worthy of being Top 20 ranked (typically at least a 9 win team for that to be the case)
