Minnesota Wisconsin Football

Wisconsin quarterback Graham Mertz is one of the athletes that has begun selling merchandise to cash in on his name following a court ruling allowing college players to profit from their play.

Less than a month after the NCAA ruled college athletes can profit from their names, image and likeness some Badgers Football players have begun to reap the benefits.

On July 1, the NCAA adopted a temporary policy to suspend rules that banned college athletes from getting paid for the use of their names, images and likeness. It was a significant shift but a small part of a larger debate over whether students should be paid to compete in college sporting events.
