    I wonder if this will catch on and how far they will go with it. Also.. this could work out well to CFB or it could work out poorly. I'm also interested to see if the NCAA rule-making machine conveniently spits out a rule against wearing stuff like this.

    The NCPAnow.org website described the "#AllPlayersUnited Campaign Goals" as:
    • Demonstrate unity among college athletes and fans in favor of NCAA reform.
    • Show support for players who joined concussion lawsuits against the NCAA, which could "force the NCAA to finally take meaningful steps to minimize brain trauma in contact sports and provide resources for current and former players suffering with brain injuries."
    • Show support for the players who "stepped up in the O'Bannon v. NCAA, EA Sports lawsuit regarding the use of players' images/likeliness, which could unlock billions of dollars in resources for current, future, and former players."
    • Stand behind individual players being "harmed by NCAA rules."

    I have a feeling these kids will be suspended or lose their scholarship, that's just how sad the NCAA is.

    Arian had it right, they own you, and you can't do anything about it.

    I agree, let's say they do stand up to the NCAA which I do hope they do then say goodbye to the scholarships and NCAA wins. This is an unfortunate situation because these players do bring schools quite a bit of money. I only wish I could have had a scholarship, il be paying off my school loan for the next ten years. They are lucky to be getting a free education at the same time.
