If only there was enough money… https://t.co/9X6ZE1gFOV— Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) July 22, 2019Over the years, Bilas has been very outspoken in regard to the NCAA’s amateurism policy, which prevents student-athletes from profiting off their own likenesses.In 2017, Bilas told Business Insider, “there’s no argument that this is a multibillion-dollar business that is professional in every way except how the athletes are treated. The only student in college that is subject to a wage restriction is an athlete.”If only there was enough money…funny, there aren’t too many “complexities” for administrator pay, but it’s probably all “tethered to education.” https://t.co/M1oRqFMWp6— Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) May 24, 2019If only there was enough money… https://t.co/wAlorTFo2j— Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) August 3, 2018If only there was enough money….https://t.co/vk7h5CaB0Z— Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) June 26, 2018If only there was enough money… https://t.co/XzpRlfEjBx— Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) February 20, 2018As the argument about fair compensation for student-athletes continues, Bilas won’t turn off his Twitter fingers. Whether college athletes should get paid is always a contentious issue surrounding the NCAA. One person who has never been shy about expressing his opinion on the matter is ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas.LSU recently rewarded its football team with a new and improved locker room — and we’re not just talking about an ordinary locker room. The facility features lounging chairs that were designed to be equivalent to first class seats on an airplane, and some may argue that it’s more of a bedroom than a locker room. The lounge pod includes an iPad mount, power outlets, ventilated storage boards and more.
