    Is there anything stopping a kid from renouncing his scholarship and playing as a walk-on so he can get money for the use of his likeness?

    Yep.

    They should be able to generate money on their own name. Whether that's endorsements, autographs, etc.

    But in no way should a student be paid. Unless they give up their scholarship.

    I think they'd still be under NCAA rules whether they have a scholarship or not, so they still can't sign autographs.

    College Football thread, time for my negative ratings to sky rocket again!

    OSU only has 6 scholarship seniors on the squad this year. Still going to beat Michigan by 20.

    Meanwhile in the SEC...

    Looking forward to seeing what this big guy can do this year. He's definitely on his way to the NFL. He does have a bad habit of getting a little too chippy.. I suppose with a guy like this, thats a good problem to have.

    Should have it wrapped up.

    Probably won't.

    Butch Jones is a hype man recruiter. He is far from a great coach. His only hope for massive success is to attract elite coordinators which he hasn't done a terrible job at. He has shown a willingness to make changes there fast.

    Will he win a title here? I doubt it but he will make Tennessee relevant again. The question will be how long these fans are willing to go without winning anything of any significance.
