    I see the only positive of this bill is that the NCAA will no longer feel it “owns” the rights to college athletes and will never sell their names/appearances to a video game company again. That was beyond the pale when the NCAA did that for MBB and CFB.
    But, I think the downside will the SMU days of recruiting bribes look like amateur hour. Now, FB and BB can go out and “sell” the fact that there are people in the community that have paid other FB and BB players large sums for “sponsorship deals” and if that recruit comes they will get the same help so they can help their family or buy the range rover they want. This will weaponize recruiting. I really do not see any impact outside of the money sports though.
