On this bye week edition of the Black & Gold Banneret Podcast, Jeff, Eric and Brian break down what happened at Cincinnati, where the UCF Knights go from here, and pass out midterm grades for halfway through the regular season.

Then, in a special interview, Jeff discusses Florida HB 287, a bill that would permit college student-athletes to make money off of their name, image and likeness, with the authors of the bill - Rep. Chip LaMarca of Florida’s 93rd House District and sports lawyer and agent Darren Heitner (30:45).

Read the text of the bill here.

Our very own Chas Short (@CFBAsterisk on Twitter) then joins to go a little more in-depth into the issue from a legal perspective (49:40).

Finally, Jeff, Eric and Brian recap events for Men’s Soccer, Women’s Soccer and Volleyball, plus Tacko Fall’s NBA preseason debut in Boston.
