Re: Supreme Court vacancy

Hey guys, I've actually been a Democrat this whole time. Never was a Republican and did not re-register as a libertarian.

I just didn't drink the anti-trump koolaid.

Re: Supreme Court vacancy

The Supreme Court on Monday ruled against the NCAA in a landmark antitrust case that specifically challenged the associationís ability to have national limits on benefits for athletes that are related to education, but more broadly had raised doubts about its ability to limit benefits at all.

The ruling will end the associationís nationwide limits on education-related benefits athletes can receive for playing college sports.

Athletes playing Division I menís or womenís basketball or Bowl Subdivision football will be able to receive benefits from their schools that include cash or cash-equivalent awards based on academics or graduation.

Among the other benefits that schools also can offer are scholarships to complete undergraduate or graduate degrees at any school and paid internships after athletes have completed their collegiate sports eligibility.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/sport...ng/5237656001/

Now schools can offer cash benefits to "student" athletes including money for laptops, paid internships etc. My first impression is that the big schools can do a lot more paying of booster money to lure "student" athletes.

I think this just makes the disparity even more pronounced. No way a Maryland alumni dark money can compete with the Michigans and Ohio States in terms of program money.

I guess the Alabama "Sports Cars for Football Starters" program is now legal. After all .. the kids gotta get to school somehow.

Yeah not a fan. To me a free education worth(depending on the school) is 80 to 150 thousand dollars ,how is that not worth while?

Re: Supreme Court vacancy

I 100% side with the weird unbalance of these schools and TV networks making billions of dollars in revenue and the guys who go to Alabama to play football or UNC for basketball are employed athletes and not students in way shape or form.

But the idea of paying athletes has some many red flags.

- wont this just allow and encourage even more under table payments?
- wont this just make Alabama recruiting even more dominant?
- will non revenue sports be cut out now bc even more money is going to 5 star football and basketball players?
- how does a school like Maryland compete with booster/alumni/program money of OSU or UM? Let only the even smaller schools like Nebraska etc


Will be interesting to see.
