Former UM Star: Pay To Play In NCAA Long Overdue


PART BY HEALTH WELCOME BACK. NEW DETAILS TONIGHT ABOUT THE POLARIZING PLAN TO POSSIBLY, SOMEDAY, ALLOW COLLEGE ATHLETES TO MAKE A PROFIT OFF THE NAMES, IMAGES AND LIGHTNESS. SIGNIFICANT MOVEMENT NOW HAPPENING FROM WITHIN THE NCAA. THE GOVERNING BODY FOR COLLEGIATE ATHLETICS SAYS IT WILL TAKE A LOOK AT POSSIBLY CHANGING THE RULES. CBS 4’s AMBER DIAZ HAS LATE REACTIONS TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT. SHE IS LIVE IN CORAL GAME GABLE. AMBER. OF COURSE WE KNOW COLLEGE SPORTS IS A MULTIBILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY. BUT LET’S FACE IT, THE STAR ATHLETES HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO CASH IN ON THE FAME. WHILE TODAY THE DECISION TO CHANGE THE RULES WAS ANNOUNCED, NO ONE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT THEY WILL ALLOW. Reporter: THE NATIONAL COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION HAS VOTED UNANIMOUSLY TO ALLOW STUDENT ATHLETES TO BE PAID FOR THE NAME. IMAGE, AND LIGHTNESS. THE ANNOUNCEMENT COMES 2 MONTHS AFTER CALIFORNIA ANNOUNCED THEY WERE THE FIRST STATE TO PASS A LAW ALLOWING COLLEGE ATHLETES TO SIGN ENDORSEMENT DEALS, BEGINNING IN 2023. Reporter: HOW WOULD THIS HAVE HELPED YOU BACK IN THE DAY? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I’M THE GUY WHO RAN FROM THE TUNNEL –. YOU KIDDING ME? Reporter: FORMER WIDE RECEIVER RANDALL HILL SAYS THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS LONG OVERDUE. COUPLE GUYS WE WERE TALKING ABOUT IT. WE WOULD’VE LOVED TO HAVE HAD IT BACK IN THE DAY. WHEN — WAS ON TOP. BECAUSE YOU KNOW, 30 YEARS LATER, I AM STILL GETTING CAUGHT SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE DID. WE CHANGED COLLEGE FOOTBALL. Reporter: IN A STATEMENT, NCAA BOARD OF GOVERNORS ROAD, WE MUST EMBRACE CHANGE TO PROVIDE THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE FOR COLLEGE ATHLETES. FLORIDA STATE REPRESENTATIVE, KEANU McGEE APPEARED ON CBS 4 AT 7:00 APPEARED JUST DAYS AFTER THE PAST. THIS IS ABOUT FAIRNESS. THIS IS ALLOWING INDIVIDUALS TO HAVE A SAY IN THE PREMARKET. Reporter: HEALD DISCUSSED HIS OWN HOUSE BILL THAT WOULD ALLOW STUDENT ATHLETES TO BE COMPENSATED THROUGH DEALS, USING THE NAMES, IMAGES AND LIGHTNESS. THEY ARE GOING TO SCHOOL TO LEARN ABOUT CAPITALISM. THEY ARE LEARNING ABOUT EVERYTHING ON HOW TO MAKE MONEY, HOW TO CREATE PRODUCTS. BUT THE ONE THING THAT I KNOW THAT WORKS FOR THEM AS THE TALENT. Reporter: WHILE HILL AGREES THAT CASHING IN ON THE FAMOUS BENEFICIAL FOR STAR ATHLETES, HE SAYS THEY NEED TO BE REALISTIC. THAT FAME FOR MANY CAN BE FLEETING. THE LIKELIHOOD OF YOU GETTING A PENSION, AND NFL PENSION IS SLIM TO NONE. SO, IF YOU’RE GOING TO MAKE MONEY OFF — WHEN YOU’RE IN COLLEGE, SAVE SOME OF THAT MONEY. PUT SOME OF THAT MONEY AWAY SO THAT IT GIVES YOU A JUMPSTART ON LIFE.
