|Clemson DB joins lawsuit against the NCAA|

According to ESPN, six current NCAA players have joined a lawsuit against the NCAA. The lawsuit claims the NCAA owes money to former players for allowing their likenesses to be used without compensation.
Led by a pair of Arizona Wildcats, six current college football players from major programs on Thursday joined a federal anti-trust lawsuit against the NCAA, significantly raising the stakes in a court battle that challenges the economic model of big-time college sports.
The players are: Arizona linebacker Jake Fischer and kicker Jake Smith, Vanderbilt linebacker Chase Garnham, Clemson cornerback Darius Robinson, and Minnesota tight end Moses Alipate and wide receiver Victor Keise.
By adding their names to a highly contentious lawsuit originally filed in 2009 by former UCLA basketball player Ed O'Bannon, the players -- all from college football's largest conferences -- enhance the chances that damages in the suit could reach into the billions of dollars.
One thing @21FearGod wanted me to make absolutely clear is that he won't let his involvement in the suit be a distraction on the field.— Andy Staples (@Andy_Staples) July 19, 2013
