Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s curator insight, January 30, 2013 4:45 PM

"College sports is a multi-billion-dollar business. Do its workers deserve to be paid? 

It's a simple question taking a convoluted journey through our legal system. But student-athletes are closer to getting their day in court, since a judge ruled yesterday that NCAA athletes can legally pursue a cut of the billions of dollars flowing to college sports through TV deals."

Rebekah Brown, CPA's comment, March 7, 2013 10:28 AM
Very interesting article. NCAA is a big business.... but they prevent their athletes from having a job and in some cases a decent education (they are just not alloted the time) So should they be compensated in some other way? And if they do how does it change the world of college sports?
