A leading civil-rights historian makes the case for paying college athletes—and reveals how a spate of lawsuits working their way through the courts could destroy the NCAA. A litany of scandals in recent years have made the corruption of college sports constant front-page news. We profess outrage each time we learn that yet another student-athlete has been taking money under the table. But the real scandal is the very structure of college sports, wherein student-athletes generate billions of dollars for universities and private companies while earning nothing for themselves. Here, a leading civil-rights historian makes the case for paying college athletes—and reveals how a spate of lawsuits working their way through the courts could destroy the NCAA. Or buy your coach. These were eminent reformers—among them the president of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, two former heads of the U. Olympic Committee, and several university presidents and chancellors. The Knight Foundation, a nonprofit that takes an interest in college athletics as part of its concern with civic life, had tasked them with saving college sports from runaway commercialism as embodied by the likes of Vaccaro, who, since signing his pioneering shoe contract with Michael Jordan in , had built sponsorship empires successively at Nike, Adidas, and Reebok.
With the recent news that the University of South Carolina has received notice of allegations for potential major violations, the idea of scandals in college sports has been thrust back into the limelight. While it remains to be seen what will occur with the Gamecocks athletic programs, let’s take a look at the scandals that have already run their course.

Jun 18, It was a huge day for the NCAA today as there were multiple updates on college sports resuming operations. The council met virtually today to talk about a number of issues around college sports regarding getting sports back up after the COVID19 pandemic brought them to a halt. As expected, the NCAA approved the upcoming schedule to begin a schedule for summer practices.
As first reported by Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated, college football will begin to slowly integrate organized meetings and workouts on July 6, with the hope of enhanced training by the end of July, and with a normal start to summer practices in August. Boston College has yet to set a date for football players to return to campus, but if they get back in the next few weeks they should be right in line with the NCAA guidelines.
This would put Boston College on track to kick off on time against Syracuse on September 4th. For men’s and women’s basketball, the committee approved a continuation of their current rules that allow for eight hours of nonphysical activities prior to July On top of that starting on July 20 players can resume summer activities until the start of the school year.

Winning brings satisfaction and pride to the current student-athletes, and brings honor to the institution and all its alumni. We all want to win. But we must do so in accordance with the policies set forth by the NCAA. The NCAA holds the institution responsible for the control and conduct of the athletics program. Therefore, the institution is also held responsible for the conduct of all its staff, student-athletes, alumni and supporters.
Violations could affect the eligibility of a current or prospective student-athlete, or could result in sanctions against the institution.

An extra benefit would include the provision of transportation, meals, clothing, entertainment, preferential loan terms, housing and other benefits offered to student-athletes not available to the general student population.
New NCAA Rules Aim at Holding Coaches Accountable
By Jeremy Rubin on May 13, Local and state health guidelines and university student policies will dictate to what capacity NCAA athletics will take place at each school, which means timelines will be determined on a school-by-school basis.

Thursday brought a sign that the NCAA’s dedication to student-athletes might not be as important as it was just 24 hours before. The Division I Board of Directors and Presidential Forum recommended against undergraduate players in football, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball and hockey being granted the same one-time transfer exception currently utilized by athletes in other collegiate sports.
Undergraduate players in those five sports currently have to sit one year in residence before regaining eligibility. This development doesn’t mean the issue is dead by any means. The NCAA board simply concluded the one-time transfer concept was too complicated to recommend pursuing it right now as it will require formal legislation — instead of a mere tweak to existing transfer rules.
The issue had become so complicated the board had issued a moratorium on any changes to the transfer environment.

Those conversations will be limited to college coaches discussing players they are specifically interested in, as part of their evaluation process, not as a de facto communication method for making unofficial verbal offers to players.
