  A group of senators led by Cory Booker of New Jersey and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut on Thursday released a plan for reforming college sports with an athletes bill or rights. The legislative plan calls for college athletes to have the ability to earn money for their names, images and likenesses with "minimal restrictions," and much more. The senators also want to ensure for the athletes long-term medical coverage and treatment, enforceable medical standards, academic freedom and revenue sharing agreements.

Last month, NCAA President Mark Emmert appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee for a hearing about name, image and likeness. Booker and Blumenthal questioned Emmert about athlete welfare and said then their plan for a bill of rights was in the works. Booker and Blumenthal were joined in a statement by seven other senators, including Democrats Chris Murphy of Connecticut, a frequent NCAA critic, and vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris of California. The NCAA is in the process of changing its rules to permit athletes to earn money off their names, images and likenesses for things like endorsements and appearances. - AP College Football

  New Mexico State University made the difficult decision to postpone its 2020 football season due to the COVID-19 pandemic that continues to affect our nation. This decision was reached in conjunction with President John Floros, Chancellor Dan Arvizu and Head Football Coach Doug Martin. We have relied on the knowledge and expertise of both our on-campus medical staff and others to arrive at this decision. With the Big 10, Pac-12, Mid-American and Mountain West Conferences, UConn, UMass and Old Dominion a total of 53 FBS programs have made a similar decisions in recent days. Because of this, we came to the conclusion that creating a full, robust schedule for our student-athletes and fans would have been exceptionally difficult to accomplish. Finally, the state of New Mexico's 14-day quarantine order makes playing a football schedule with road games impossible. - New Mexico State Football

Trump said Orgeron "feels his players just want to be out there." The president said he's hopeful that both college and high school football would be played in the fall. The Big Ten and Pac-12 said Tuesday they were postponing their football seasons. - AP College Football

He returned two punts for touchdowns in a 2018 victory over Villanova. While Amos drew headlines for his return ability, he developed into a consistent defensive back during his JMU career.
