It looks like Missouri's Lucas Vincent is channeling his inner Ed O'Bannon. On Monday, the defensive lineman tweeted about the soon-to-be-released NCAA Football 14, asking why he should have to pay for the video game when his likeness was used in its production.

Vincent's question fits in line with the ongoing Ed O'Bannon v. NCAA lawsuit, in which former UCLA basketball player O'Bannon is challenging the NCAA and EA Sports' right to use student-athletes' likenesses without pay. Just last week, U.S. district judge Claudia Wilken ruled that the plaintiffs can now include current players in the lawsuit -- a potentially key step toward possible class-action certification.

Given the latest developments, it will be interesting to see if more current student-athletes begin to voice their opinions about the high-profile suit. As SI.com’s Stewart Mandel reported following the case's class-action certification hearing on June 20, plaintiffs' attorney Michael Hausfeld said he plans to add a current student-athlete or multiple current student-athletes to the suit. But Hausfeld also told Wilken that the matter had to be discussed privately, as he didn't "want any current student retaliated against [by the NCAA]” for participating.
