NCAA Now Supports Students Making Money

In a shocking turn of events, the NCAA board recently stated they are now in support of students making money (which is the goal of going to school in the first place). And, with the support of each division (I, II, III) students will be able to earn income off their likeness starting in 2021. A few thoughts on the topic;

  • About damn time
  • Players can now make money on “third-party endorsements both related to and separate from athletics”, and the rules also allow, “compensation for other student-athlete opportunities, such as social media, businesses they have started and personal appearances”, according to the NCAA.   Which means they will allow players to make money doing anything, except play sports
  • I bet top players will make millions a year but I real love the idea of lower tier players making a couple grand a month from this. Talk about adding to the college experience… 
  • Also, are schools going to give scholarships to top players who will make millions of dollars while at school? Seems like there are better ways to allocate the scholarships 
  • I wish this happened in 2013. My college basketball stats of 2.3 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 0.5 assist per game would of made me a lot of green

Question: What would your strategy be to make money as a stud college athlete?
