I really don't like where any of this is headed, especially where there are states OK with the proposal (most notably PA). I'm indifferent on my feelings as to college athlete's being paid as a whole, to be sure, but I fear seeing half the "blue bloods" splitting from the NCAA's mandate and going on their own, and what that does to the sport as a whole.
Penn State being able to offer legal $$$ is ABSOLUTELY an unfair advantage vs. Ohio State, and they will absolutely reap the benefits of such. Why would a 17-year-old teenager not accept the benefit of legal pay-outs, if available? The B1G will have to address this directly with legit regulations, if it comes to that... even if that requires schools like Penn State to be removed.
