New details on the California bill that could change college sports forever

The California State Assembly is in the process of debating and refining SB-1401, which would require the state's colleges and universities to share a portion of their revenue with football and basketball players.

Let's say USC football generates $50 million a year and spends $10 million on football scholarships. For the entire history of college athletics, USC has kept that remaining $40 million and spent it as it sees fit. If SB-1401 passes as it's currently written, $20 million that has funded Olympic sports and paid administrators' salaries would disappear from the budget and reappear in a fund for Trojans football players.

This would definitely make funding non-revenue generating sports a challenge for many schools..

Typically, California has been the catalyst to rule/law changes throughout the U.S. (not just sports, but in general)

This is not going to be good for a lot of clear athletes. Because, the football and basketball program support a lot of other sports.
