Name, image and likeness has changed the game, quite literally, in more ways that none.
The top talking heads across the college football landscape realize as much.
That includes ESPN’s mouth of the South analyst Paul Finebaum, who opined earlier this week on his radio and TV show that the NCAA is falling apart as we speak. Not later. Now.
“It’s not only the future — it’s the present,” Finebaum said, per 247Sports. “And I read something over the weekend from Jack Swarbrick of Notre Dame, respected individual — highly respected — and he said that he thought the NCAA current structure, Power Five, would be obsolete by the middle of the 2030s that’s 10 years off. I think he’s being very, very generous. I don’t think this is a sustainable model that will last another couple of years. Now, it’s impossible to predict the breakup of an organization like this because it moves so slowly. But it is going to come apart. The NCAA is on its last breath. And I think college football, as we know it, is on its last breath.”
