The NCAA is exploring allowing its athletes to be compensated for their name, image and likeness. Ray Tanner is worried about that.“This is personal opinion but when I see name, image, likeness it makes me feel like it is pay for play,” South Carolina’s athletics director said. “I’m like, ‘This gives me angst.’ ” Southeastern Conference commissioner Greg Sankey feels the same way. “There are so many forces pushing each and every way,” USC president Harris Pastides said. “At some point, the courts and the lawyers took over. We’ll see where it goes.” In May, the NCAA announced a working group to explore the issues surrounding name, image and likeness compensation, which could allow active college athletes to serves as paid sponsor for businesses and/or receive money for their autograph. Still, it worries Tanner and some of his colleagues. “We pay for all kinds of things we never did before,” Tanner said. “I think we’re in a good place, and I don’t know that there would be a way to make that work personally.” -Josh Kendall, The State.
