    House Bill 188

    Thoughts

    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.

    If the team loses money going to the bowl, can they go after the graduating seniors for the difference?

    Considering the money goes straight to the SEC office, the 33% will be out of ours and Ole Miss' pockets. At least until after revenues are distributed.

    NCAA would never allow this to happen anyway. Unfair recruiting advantage for Mississippi schools not named USM.

    If we lose the bowl game, does it mean the student athletes don't get any money? See bold text below...

    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.

    Its Omeria @ her finest. She's also authored a bill this session that would require you to register quantities of pistol and rifle ammunition you purchase, one to fund a study to see why there are more blacks than whites in prisons, and one to require low fat meals be served to overweight kids in school. Can you imagine the hate to reaped upon you if everybody else in your class has a regular school meal and you have to get the fat boy meal?

    Yeah, she used to be my state representative. BTW, the House web site seriously needs to update her bio page since her husband passed away in 2001.

    I hope this stupid bitch don't find out that the SEC basically profit shares with bowl revenue and ALL schools get money for the bowls, not just the ones that goo one. She will sue the SEC to have JSU and Alcorn admitted.

    I do not know about this rep, but the next time elections come around.... People need to go to the courthouse your rep lives in and make sure the lien books are clear of their names or business names. Part of my job is to research title to properties and you would be astounded at the names of state reps and senators that owe taxes and it has gotten to the point that they have liens filed. Some of you folks that have reps or senators that have districts that run along highway 45 south of tupelo is a great start.
