Kirk Herbstreit Has A Message For The NCAA’s Latest Committee

first_imgkirk herbstreit looking very tan at the nfl draftYesterday, the NCAA announced it was forming a group to examine the organization’s “position on name, image and likeness benefits and potentially propose rule modifications tethered to education.” Potentially, the committee’s findings could institute a policy change that would enable student-athletes to profit from their name, image and likeness.If that happens, there’s a chance the beloved NCAA Football video game franchise will come back. If it does, expect rejoicing from college football fans across the country.Kirk Herbstreit is certainly rooting for the game to return. He sent a message to Ohio State AD Gene Smith, who is co-chairing the NCAA committee.“So @OSU_AD if all goes well is there a chance we get our NCAA Football video game back?!? Just asking for a few 100k friends that have missed the game desperately for 5 years—including former and current players. Haha!! Be a hero!” Herbstreit wrote on Twitter.

It has been way too long.More importantly, while Smith made it clear that paying student-athletes isn’t being considered, allowing them to profit from their name and likeness is a step in the right direction.Hopefully changes are coming.last_img read more
