California law could threaten Texas football


2-ROBERT:YOU MAY HAVE HEARD THE ANNOUNCEMENT LAST WEEK THAT A CONTROVERSIAL NEW CALIFORNIA LAW IS SET TO BEGIN IN 2023.IT’S CALLED THE “FAIR PAY TO PLAY ACT”. ITS GOAL IS TO ALLOW COLLEGE ATHLETES TO EARN ENDORSEMENT DEALS AND OTHER MONETARY BENEFITS NOT NORMALLY ALLOWED UNDER N-C-A-A RULES.2-ERIN:STUDENT ATHLETES IN CALIFORNIA WILL BE ABLE TO PROFIT FROM THE USE OF THEIR NAMES, IMAGES AND LIKENESSES. FOR EXAMPLE… A STANDOUT FOOTBALL PLAYER CAN MAKE MONEY FROM HIS JERSEY SALES…. OR A COLLEGE BASKETBALL STAR COULD SIGN A SHOE DEAL.STUDENT ATHLETES COULD EVEN MAKE MONEY BY HOSTING CAMPS… OR STARRING IN ADS.2-ROBERT:SO, HOW WILL CALIFORNIA’S LAW AFFECT TEAMS AT U-T AND THE REST OF TEXAS?2-ERIN:KXAN’S JOHN DABKOVICH CAUGHT UP WITH FORMER LONGHORN AND NFL WIDE RECEIVER QUAN COSBY AT THE “FORE THE KIDS” GOLF TOURNAMENT AT SPANISH OAKS… TO TALK ABOUT THE “FAIR PLAY” AND HOW IT COULD INFLUENCE RECRUITS. 09;27;34;21JOHN: SO, WITH THIS LAW IN CALIFORNIA, LET’S IMAGINE A 17-YEAR-OLD QUAN COSBY IS GETTING RECRUITED BY EVERY SCHOOL IN THE COUNTRY BUT THERE’S ONE SCHOOL WHERE YOU CAN GET PAID. AFFECT YOUR DECISION MAKING PROCESS? QUAN: THE WAY IT’S FORMATTED RIGHT NOW WITH IT ONLY BEING IN CALIFORNIA, CLEARLY THAT WOULD AFFECT BECAUSE GROWING UP IN LITTLE, MARTIN, TX I WAS TO GET THE OPPORTUNITY, FIRST AND FOREMOST, YOU HAVE TO EARN IT. YOU HAVE TO GO OUT AND MAKE PLAYS AND TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO USE YOUR LIKENESS. TO HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY, I’M SURE IT WOULD HAVE WEIGHED ON ME. THAT’S WHY YOU SEE A LOT MORE STATES LOOKING INTO IT AND PROBABLY ARE GOING TO PASS THEM IN THE NEAR FUTURE. :44 09;30;43;27JOHN: THE NCAA HAS SAID THIS LAW IS GOING TO END AMATEURISM IN COLLEGE SPORTS. IT’S GOING TO END COLLEGE SPORTS AS WE KNOW IT. DO YOU THINK THAT’S THE CASE? QUAN: THAT’S TRUE AND FALSE. IT’S DEFINITELY TRUE BECAUSE IT WILL CHANGE SOME THINGS. SO, AS KNOW IT? YES, IT WILL BE VERY DIFFERENT. PEOPLE WILL, I’M SURE, GET CREATIVE AND FIND WAYS TO TRY TO DO THEIR BEST TO HELP THEIR SCHOOL. AND AMATEURISM? SOME PEOPLE MIGHT SAY ‘THAT’S OKAY’ BECAUSE, ULTIMATELY, OTHER THAN THE RULES, I’M NOT SURE WHAT THE NCAA, AS AN ORGANIZATION,EVER DID. I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT UT DID FOR ME :4009;31;55;04JOHN: TIM TEBOW SAID SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF ‘WHAT HAPPENED TO BEING LOYAL TO YOUR TEAM AND PLAYING FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME?’ A LOT OF FOLKS SAID, ‘EASY FOR YOU TO SAY. YOU CAME FROM A WEALTHY FAMILY.’ CAN YOU DO BOTH? CAN YOU MAKE MONEY ON THE SIDE AND STILL BE LOYAL TO YOUR FOOTBALL TEAM? QUAN: FOR SURE, I PLAYED WITH TEBOW ON THE BRONCOS AND HE’S GOOD AT VOICING HIS OPINION AND FROM HIS LENS, I SEE WHY HE SAYS THAT . BUT HE COULD CALL MOM AND DAD ANY TIME HE WANTED AND NEVER EVER HAD AN ISSUE. HE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT IT FELT LIKE TO GO TO SCHOOL WITHOUT A CAR. :31 09;32;40;10AND SO, UM, HE DOESN’T REALLY KNOW IT FROM A
