    Interesting article here. California seems to be pushing legislation that allows college athletes to earn compensation for the use of their likeness. Obviously, the NCAA doesn't like this and is threatening that these schools would be ineligible for participating in NCAA championships. Curious as to what will happen here if the NCAA sticks to it's guns.

    Will the California schools leave the NCAA and form their own association? What would this mean for the rest of the PAC12?

    An opening for the P5 schools to ditch the NCAA.

    My initial reaction is that this is a bluff on the part of the NCAA. They don’t want it to pass, but I have a very hard time believing they would go through with that kind of threat. Between Stanford, UCLA and USC, they probably win 3-4 national championships per year in various sports. The majority of which are in sports where no athletes would ever benefit from that rule anyway.

    This is my thought as well. The NCAA will eventually cave on this...probably. With how incompetent they are, you never know.

    Would be an interesting standoff, as you could expect many of the best athletes to then head to California to get paid. NCAA would see their brand diluted.

    With actual rosters and the players getting a cut of it that is put in an interest-bearing account they can't access until after their eligibility is up. It shouldn't be that hard to make something like that happen. Would get a lot of positive press while driving more interest from kids in college football.

    How much money would EA Sports project to generate off the NCAA football games? How much would go to every college football player in the country?

    130 teams x 85 players = 11,050 players as a basic estimate.

    EA Sports pays the NFL & NFLPA $50M a year for its Madden rights. https://moneyinc.com/how-much-is-the-madden-nfl-video-game-franchise-worth/

    Let's figure that the NCAA would get half that, so $25M.

    Then, let's figure that players get half the money after administration costs like we see from a standard pro deal. For easy math, let's say that the player pool ends up at $11.05 million.

    That comes out to $1,000 a year for every player.

    Assuming that each school is getting a share of the rest ($11.05M / 130) and the rest went to the NCAA general fund and conferences, we end up with every Athletic Department getting a check for $85,000 a year.

    We're not talking about huge money here.

    It just occurred to me that even if California passes the law, that doesn’t mean schools like Cal, UCLA, Stanford and USC will start paying the players. The PAC 12 would have something to say about that.

    You didn't include FCS or other levels that are included in the game, unless you're just assuming the money would only go to FBS programs and players.

    Yeah. A system like that would be corruption proof. Right. In my mind it would serve as a money laundering operation.

    Suppose the Cali schools have to band together for one big Cali classification, how would this impact the western conferences in general? The WCC, Big Sky, WAC, MWC, and Pac-12 would be impacted. I think a North and South split would be done for football:

    Northern Conference
    Washington
    Washington State
    Oregon
    Oregon State
    Boise State
    Utah
    Utah State
    Wyoming
    Colorado State
    Colorado

    Southern Conference:
    Hawaii
    Nevada
    UNLV
    Arizona State
    Arizona
    Air Force
    New Mexico
    New Mexico State
    UTEP

    For all sports:

    Northwestern
    Washington
    Washington State
    Gonzaga
    Oregon
    Oregon State
    Boise State
    Utah
    BYU
    Utah State

    Southwestern
    Nevada
    UNLV
    Arizona
    Arizona State
    NMSU
    UNM
    UTEP
    Wyoming
    Colorado State
    Colorado

    Big Sky
    EWU
    Seattle
    Portland
    Portland State
    Idaho
    Idaho State
    Montana
    Montana State

    WAC
    Weber State
    Utah Valley State
    Dixie State
    Southern Utah
    Northern Colorado
    Denver
    Air Force
    Northern Arizona
    Grand Canyon

    Big Sky Football would contain all BS and WAC teams except AFA in football.
