    Anthony Gonzalez insight, Justin Fields Heisman odds

    Lettermen Live presented by Roosters is back with another jam-packed virtual show.

    Former Ohio State wide receiver and current United States Congressman Anthony Gonzalez takes a quick breather from Capitol Hill to join Austin Ward and Birm and talk about his efforts in the last few weeks, as well as plenty of Ohio State football. Gonzalez talks about what he would do if he were quarantined while trying to prepare for a season and what he expects from Justin Fields and the Buckeyes.

    Anthony Schlegel also joined the show to break down Heisman Trophy odds for Fields and much more. It’s all part of a fun, casual conversation presented by Roosters.

    If the NCAA's new rule change is going to work, it's going to need some help from congress. Thankfully, we've got Gonzo on the case.

    NCAA president Mark Emmert said the association will also be turning to Congress for help in making the proposed changes possible. The working group's report says the NCAA should ask the federal government to help provide "guardrails" that would create one law that applies to all schools and also to "[e]stablish an antitrust exemption for the Association" that would provide cover from future lawsuits challenging potential caps the NCAA would place on the type of endorsements athletes could make and the value of those endorsements.

    "It's clear we need Congress's help in all of this," Emmert said.

    Federal legislators have shown interest in creating laws about how college athletes are paid in the past year, but the coronavirus pandemic and an upcoming presidential election present obstacles to quickly passing any legislation. Emmert said the NCAA could vote to approve these proposals even if Congress does not provide all the help that is being requested. He added that he thought passing a law in the coming year was "certainly within the realm of doable."


    (Anthony) Gonzalez, a former wide receiver at Ohio State and in the NFL, said there are still important details for politicians and college sports stakeholders to figure out. He suggested that the government might create some type of clearinghouse to help the NCAA regulate its new NIL market. He said he is confident that answers will emerge in the coming months for one simple reason.

    "We have no other choice," Gonzalez told ESPN. "... Whether we like it or not, those questions have to be answered. Do we get it perfect? Probably not, I don't know. But it's certainly something that needs to be done."

    A lot of changes are coming and I have no idea how all of this is going to play out, but I do know that is it's a remarkably convenient time to have a former All-Big Ten football player in Congress.

    Can't listen to Schlegal talk... talks way too much and him/Boren always say "right?" and it drives me up a wall.

    If Anthony just pulled back a little more his work would be very refreshing but boy does he just take over the spotlight.

    Re: “I do feel a tremendous responsibility to do this the right way, to get this done correctly, to coordinate with all the right people, so that we protect the college system that we love so much,” Gonzalez said. “The college system has been vastly beneficial to the athletes who have participated in it. We have to get this right at the congressional level, and I am taking full responsibility for striking the right balance.”

    GONZO'S ON IT. For the NCAA's name, image and likeness changes to go smoothly, it will need an assist from congress, which means it's an extremely convenient time to have a former Ohio State football player in the U.S House of Representatives.

    This obviously is not the nation's highest priority at the moment, for good reason, but I'm glad to see Gonzo's handling things.

    The former college football star is now in the United States House of Representatives. The Republican Rep. is teaming up with Democratic Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, from Missouri, for a bipartisan bill to help college athletes profit off their name, image and likeness.

    The “rules of construction” in the bill makes the point that athletes who profit from the NIL legislation will not be school employees.

    In the bill, athletes can have endorsement contracts and have representatives negotiate the arrangements of the endorsements. It also doesn’t make it illegal for an endorsement to conflict with a school endorsement agreement.

    “We greatly appreciate U.S. Reps. Gonzalez and Cleaver’s collaboration to sponsor bipartisan legislation to strengthen the college athlete experience,” the NCAA said in a statement released after the bill was introduced. “We look forward to working together with both representatives, their co-sponsors and other members of Congress to further establish a legal and legislative environment where our schools can continue to support student-athletes within the context of higher education.”

    Rep. Anthony Gonzalez was once a star for the Buckeyes. Now, he’s playing a key role in helping future Ohio State stars profit off their name, image and likeness.
