One of the biggest debates in college sports has to do with whether athletes should be allowed to use their name and likeness to make money for themselves - especially considering how much the NCAA and its member schools directly (or indirectly, depending on your opinion) make off of them. And one of the hottest topics in college football right now deals with whether Georgia running back Todd Gurley accepted money for autographs and memorabilia this past offseason.
Wednesday, AJC cartoonist Mike Luckovich put together a very telltale illustration on the matter. It depicts the NCAA "raking in" money, but criticizing the Bulldogs tailback when he goes for just one dollar.

Gurley is currently allowed to practice with the team, but is banned from competition until further notice. It's safe to say that UGA fans will appreciate the humor here.
