Good luck with that. The horse has left the barn and the programs who will survive aren't the ones complaining. You've been paying players for a long time (Unofficially). Adapt or let Dook and NC State blow right past you, amongst others.

UNC and its 20 plus years of academic fraud and racist attitudes towards those students can eat a bowl of dicks.

Not surprising coming from the man who runs a program that makes nearly as much money from royalties and licensing as it does from ticket sales. UNC stands to lose half it's revenue if the players can profit from their likeness.

It's not even that. I don't have a huge issue there, because at least the player is making money.

How much money have both UNC and Nike made off selling Carolina Blue #23 jerseys?

I like to imagine that Bubba Cunningham watched Rebel Without a Cause/The Great Escape/Roadhouse the night before this photo and thought he could become the new standard for cool, that he had a gift to offer to the wider world and called a photographer.

Alas, it was just from a 2016 game against James Madison.

North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham warned this week that athletes would be professionalized if current name, image and likeness legislation is adopted, a move he said would be against the core of the NCAA mission.

What?  You already "professionalized" them when you turned your teams into a profit center.  The schools did that.  Not the NCAA.

And furthermore, the NCAA didn't force the schools to form conferences with the specific intent of creating championship games to create more TV revenue.  They didn't force the conferences to create basketball conference basketball tournaments either.

The vast majority of college athletes do not play for an NCAA school.   Yeah, they're not gonna go pro, but they're in college and they are playing sports.   Every town has a college just like that.

Probably as much as the guy who made the NC #23 jersey famous.
Nike's Jordan line provides the gear for UNC.

OK. From 1984- (Jordan got a stake in over all Nike profits/ established Jumpman brand/ whatever), how much money did UNC and Nike make before Jordan got a cut?
