Link – Former Michigan TE Jake Butt says college players should be able to cash in on likenesses

posted in: College Football, Links | 0

He may be a Michigan guy, but he’s not wrong. When you look at what happened to him in the bowl game, tearing his ACL, he’s going to wind up getting a lot less money as a pro player. He’ll get drafted lower due to the injury, and get paid less, at least upfront.

Meanwhile the school, the conference, his coaches, etc. make millions of dollars from the sport. The sport he got injured playing. Why shouldn’t he be able to make some money from his name to make up for what he’s going to lose from the injury he suffered?

Some day the world will figure out that big time college sports can’t go on like this. Then what?
