As Illinois bill advances, NCAA takes steps to allow student-athletes to profit off name, image

This, while being morally responsible in terms of compensation, also means that we might get a college football video game back relatively soon. Which in turn means we’ll be able to make Illini football into a (digital) juggernaut.

The Governor came out in support of the bill yesterday.

The University of Illinois, however, does not (officially) want this change to happen (read: they do not want a new college football video game), presumably because they hate fun or are cowards. Take your pick.

Either way, this won’t age well for them, and not just because of the video game.
