SCOTUS Has Spoken

BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- The Supreme Court this morning issued a ruling that the NCAA cannot strictly limit certain benefits for student-athletes as a means of protecting their amateur status. While this decision only applies to those guidelines restricting education-related benefits, Justice Brett Kavanaugh fired a few warning shots at the NCAA and its current status:

“The NCAA's business model would be flatly illegal in almost any other industry in America."

"Nowhere else in America can businesses get away with agreeing not to pay their workers a fair market rate on the theory that their product is defined by not paying their workers a fair market rate. And under ordinary principles of antitrust law, it is not evident why college sports should be any different."

Well alrighty then.

I’m not sure what the questions were before the court...but I’m always confused when “pay” comes up and the cost of an education, room and board, books, and some spending money are never mentioned. I’m all for the likeness-image opportunities college athletes now have. I believe in the open marketplace concept. But, I had to pay for my college education including student loans. None of my 3 brothers had to because they got full ride athletic scholarships. Title IX wasn’t in full force when I graduated from high school - maybe I should have re-taken 2 years of high school and then I too would have gotten a full ride. In my opinion...they got paid to play college sports.

This could become a nightmare in balancing Title IX requirements. In balancing a P5 school’s budget vs an A10 school’s vs a Horizon, etc. This could very well cut sport programs which takes away opportunities for minor sport athletes from getting their college paid for and an opportunity to continue playing a sport they love.

It looks to me like a can of worms being opened.
