Wisconsin senior forward Nigel Hayes is one of the more vocal college athletes in America when it comes to social issues and he took a jab at the NCAA with his College Gameday sign on Saturday.

With the college football show in town for the big Ohio State/Wisconsin showdown, Hayes decided to be a normal college student and bring a sign.

Hayes has a sign similar to one that was seen on the show earlier this season when a college student asked his mom for beer money and put his Venmo account on the sign. That guy ended up with over 2,000 people contributing to his Venmo — even though that wasn’t the original intent.

So Hayes attached a Venmo account to his sign under the guise of being a broke college athlete, something he talked about with regards to Big Ten revenue on Twitter the night before. Hayes has been vocal about college athletes being paid and this sign probably isn’t the last thing he’ll do about it before the end of the season.
