MISSISSIPPI LEGISLATURE

2014 Regular Session

To: Universities and Colleges; Appropriations

By: Representative Scott

House Bill 188
AN ACT TO REQUIRE EVERY UNIVERSITY ELIGIBLE FOR A POSTSEASON BOWL GAME TO PLACE INTO AN ESCROW ACCOUNT 33% OF ALL REVENUE RECEIVED BY THE UNIVERSITY FOR BEING ACCEPTED INTO, PARTICIPATING IN, AND WINNING A BOWL GAME; TO REQUIRE THE UNIVERSITY TO DISTRIBUTE TO A GRADUATING ATHLETE HIS PRO RATA SHARE OF THE MONIES ACCUMULATED IN THE ESCROW ACCOUNT DURING THE ATHLETE'S ACTIVE ELIGIBILITY PERIOD; AND FOR RELATED PURPOSES.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI:

SECTION 1. The Legislature finds that university athletes invest much time, effort and focus to their athletic pursuits which may result in the university's invite and acceptance to a postseason bowl game, earning significant monies for the athlete's institution. The Legislature further finds that athletic coaches are compensated generously from the bowl game revenues, whereas the athletes receive much less significant monetary gain from their hard work and dedication to the sport. Therefore, the Legislature deems it appropriate and proper to compensate those athletes monetarily upon graduation from the university.

SECTION 2. (1) Every university eligible for a postseason bowl game shall place into an escrow account thirty-three percent (33%) of all revenue received by the university for being accepted into, participating in, and winning a bowl game.

(2) Upon graduation from the university, the monies accumulated in the escrow account during the graduating athlete's active eligibility period at that university shall be distributed to the athlete according to his pro rata share.

SECTION 3. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after July 1, 2014.







sounds like a great way to be banned from post season play by the NCAA

Sounds like they have too much time on their hands,or have their minds in the wrong place.

No offense to the state of Mississippi,but I would have to believe there are bigger issues there.

We aren't far behind and after seeing my tax return and seeing what these representives get paid,it would piss me off if this is what they're spending their time on.

We love fried food in Mississippi. There's bound to be a fracas break out every now and then with that much bubbling vegetable oil and simmering passion in one place.

And, if we could get by with this, that would be beyond awesome. But, only if other states couldn't do it. But they would do it once they saw we got away with it......So, it would probably cancel out in the end.

Assuming of course that some of the institutions are still part of the NCAA.  The Big 6 are starting the process of carving off their own voting block which is a baby step towards independence.
