The world of college athletics could be on the verge of a major overhaul, with the possibility of federal legislation allowing athletes to profit off their skills, according to Alan Blinder of the New York Times.

Just don't expect Alabama's junior senator and former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville to be among those in favor of it.

Speaking to TMZ Sports, Tuberville said he thought scholarships and financial awards from players' universities should offset any discussion about paying collegiate athletes.
