WATCH: Pat McAfee on How NIL Rules Would Have Impacted Former WVU Players



The hottest topic surrounding college athletics the past week has been the NCAA’s change in Name Image and Likeness (NIL) rules that will now allow college athletes to profit off of their names. Former WVU punter Pat McAfee shared his own opinion on his radio show Monday, drawing on his own college experience to explain why he supports the change.

McAfee used former WVU greats Pat White and Steve Slaton as his examples, saying that White and Slaton’s play on the football field significantly rose the profile of the university. He mentions locker room upgrades as well as general campus upgrades as examples of how the university benefited from White and Slaton and said that they should have been able to make some of that money as well.
