Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently tweeted, “Great news for college athletes in FL & across our country. I’m extremely pleased @NCAA has realized that this is a matter of fairness & equity, & that these athletes should have the opportunity to receive appropriate compensation for the use of their name, image & likeness.” He was of course referring to the NCAA’s unanimous vote to allow college athletes to make money from the use of their names, images and likenesses. Many have stated that this can be done without shattering the collegiate athletic model. Those sentiments are misguided.

The author of this article does not hold a position on whether shattering the current collegiate athletic model is good or bad. The author of this article is someone who deeply understands the issues surrounding college athletes receiving compensation for the use of their names, images and likenesses. He played football at The Ohio State University, he is a sports attorney at Holland & Knight, and he has been a sports agent. Below are a list of questions he does not know the answer to, and no one else does either.
