The NCAA's top decision makers voted unanimously Tuesday to allow college athletes to profit from their name, image and likeness "in a manner consistent with the collegiate model."

The board said directed the three separate divisions of college sports to immediately begin figuring out how to update their rules in a way that maintains a distinction between college and professional sports. The board members said in a release Tuesday that all changes should make sure student-athletes have the same opportunities to make money as all other students, maintain a priority of the education and the collegiate experience and ensure that rules are "transparent, focused and enforceable" and do not create a competitive imbalance. The board wants each of its division to implement new rules by January 2021.

Just for the record, this is a bad decision that the schools and the NCAA will regret soon. There is at least some controls in place now, and at least people are watching. It's going to be all out, full blown "legal" cheating. Top recruits will be getting thousands of dollars for doing commercials and it's just going to bring more of unseedy characters into sports.

As opposed to the cheating that already occurs? Just because you get bent over backwards by your boss doesn't mean others have to.
