Dan Wetzel, SI’s Pat Forde & SI’s Ross Dellenger are back and kick off the podcast going through the details of a new bill proposal that would give college athletes in California a 50/50 split of athletic revenue — a potential huge shakeup to college athletics as we know it. Ross details how the bill could get approved & the newly found optimism surrounding it. There would be more benefits to the athletes, but how would it affect regular students? Could tuition fees be raised? Which sports would be eligible (and are deserving) of this proposed pay structure?
Dan raises the idea that the Olympic sports at universities should not dictate tuition being raised for any student. The premise of the federal government funding these sports is also on the table if more bills like these are passed and sports are deemed cuttable by their universities.
In college football news, Lane Kiffin was able to secure LSU transfer quarterback Walker Howard and a college football player entered the transfer portal advertising a school that he never attended.
Finally, the podcast ends with some fishing advice in the event that you land a big tuna.
