    So USC, UCLA, Cal, and Stanford canít compete for a national championship if The State of California doesnít fall in line?

    And I say, "GO California, GO!!" I hope this is the first step that puts the NCAA out of business, the greedy vermin.

    Well that bill is one surefire way to challenge the NCAA and amateurism in the courts.

    I would like to see the state of Alabama and other states with blueblood, moneymaking programs do this and force the NCAA's hand.

    Well, USC and Stanford are private schools, so I'm sure they wouldn't be impacted by this bill if passed and upheld.

    If you do that you end college athletics. Just watch and see.

    You need a governing body. Even though this one has flaws you can’t just let things go ungoverned.

    College athletics existed long before the NCAA as we currently know it. The NCAA has become an organization that puts a desire to protect small school athletics ahead of the athletes themselves. Frankly, if we can't fix that then the NCAA has to go and we let the chips fall where they may. But the NCAA sees this threat to its existence as clearly as we do. They will soon make it possible for players to profit from their name, image and likeness. The courts have made it clear that the current state of affairs will not stand.

    Re: NCAA threatening to ban California schools from championships?

    The top 40 head coaches' salaries' are > $3 million/year. The top 65 are > $2 million per year. The top 82 are > $1 million / year.

    These numbers roughly fit my "Take the Power 5 + 1 out of the NCAA and create something new" suggestion. These schools should only play each other. This would solve a LOT of problems about "inequity," "ambition," "underfunding" etc.

    I really don't care _AT ALL_ what happens to the other 60+ teams. They're wannabes and only get their money playing P5+1 teams at $1mm - $2mm per game. That can be most of the school's entire athletics budget. If they really wanted to actually compete on the field, their fan base would contribute - just like most of the P5 have - and they would build huge stadiums, practice facilities, etc etc etc.

    They have no place among the big boys. Let them go back to D1AA or D2. Maybe there could be some kind of program like elevation and relegation in European soccer so that if you didn't keep up you would have to move down and if you really excelled (like UCF has in recent years) you could move up. The problem is I don't want P5+1 teams playing D1aa & D2 teams. So you would never know how they REALLY competed against the big boys until they got there.

    Now that you've created the P5+1 system, pay the players for their likeness. HOWEVER, here's how I would do it: Let them have 1/2 now and the rest goes into some kind of pension-type fund that grows over the next 40 years. I don't know how you do this - legally and ethically - but it's what should be done. How do you control who makes how much ? Do all players get paid? How do you keep the #1 guy from making all the $$$? Again, I don't know but it must be done.

    I would also create academic majors in Football, Basketball, etc. Why not athletics (I'm not talking about coaching type majors in schools of education.. I'm talking about actually majoring in football). I'm not saying this is actually a smart thing to do from the athlete's standpoint or society's standpoint (other than keeping them eligible and interested). But, why not? We have majors in art, theater, music, etc. Athletes are people too!

    If you want to go to a pay for play system, you have to figure these things out and enforce them.
