    Not Andy but you know that. Never said I disagreed, said my comment was not limited to football players.

    I disagree, name/no name you're not buying a "Michigan" jersey. You're buying it bc Tom wore it or Marcus Allen wore etc...
    You're specifically buying something bc that person wore it.
    Imo said person should be receiving some comp for that.

    This just might be the worst argument in the history of "not paying college athletes".

    Talk abt ignoring the obvious holy ****

    Yes I was trying to make a quick point, late abt why you would by a jersey. Well aware he wore #10 lol.

    Point is you're buying that specific one bc of who wore it. NOT the school.

    Usually it's a combination of the 2... you have a favorite school, you wear the jersey of their best player. However, there are light years of difference between wearing a number associated with a specific player versus actually putting that player's name on the jersey.

    Tom Brady has legal rights to his name and likeness. He does not, however, having legal rights to Michigan #10, no matter how closely that number is associated with him in the public's mind.

    First part is a big disagree. Sure it's a combo in some cases but their are also a ton of people out there that could care less abt Michigan & Brady fans. Marcus Allen fans, Tebow fans. The schools aren't irrelevant but again you're making it a point to get that jersey. Very few people will simply spend that money for any old jersey.

    Think abt it, your kid ask you for a Brady jersey, you're buying that bc Tom made it wore something. Not the school.

    2nd part I'm not arguing. I'm simply saying this could be one way to compensate players.

    The value of a jersey isn’t there without the name

    If my kid asked for a Brady jersey, I'm buying Patriots #12, not Michigan #10.

    That's literally your opinion.

    There are a ton of people buying jerseys bc of who wore it. Maybe its not everything in all cases but you're kidding yourself if you don't think its a factor.

    You ask for a 47 Mia jersey you're getting that bc Irv wore it. Not the school or colors.

    Yea I really don't care lol.

    If someone seeks out a #10 from Michigan you know exactly why you're buying it.

    So? Those type of decisions are already made in pro sports, so there's a template. And let's not pretend Div 1 College Football is not a pro sport.

    Each player would ge paid whatever the college is willing to pay based on player's ability and college's need. Probably would need a salary cap. Pay for endorsements should be another opportunity.

    The side hustle's already in place and exacerbated by colleges failing to pay.

    If there was a legal way for player to monetize ability, that would actually work against corruption which is already endemic in college sports.

    It’s a valid argument that there could be a lot of bad to come out of having 18 year old kids thrown in a bidding war among boosters and supporters of the colleges they are considering.
    It doesn’t take a leap of assumption to see it would be fraught with corruption, illicit incentive and ultimately some of the kids will be taken advantage of.
    There has to be a plan, and limitations and enforcement.

    How so? I assume “monetize ability” is a euphemism for be able to receive endorsement money. (If not please explain because that might change my response)

    Opening up poor 18 year old kids to legal bribery in choosing an education, with no rules or limitation would be a disaster. Imo.

    if I’m buying a 47 Miami jersey for Michael Irving I’m probably gonna go buy one that Isn’t an official with his name on the back.

    I was looking for Montana ND jerseys recently. I was looking for ones with the name on the back that were customized. I wasn’t about to drop whatever it costs to buy a 2019 Notre dame jersey with just the number 3 on the back
