If I read this correctly, this can be fairly explosive…..

If the players win it will crush college sports.  All the non profitable sports will be eliminated because schools won’t run constant deficits on their athletic departments.

the best approach to save college athletics is have all NCAA athletes under the same union, as opposed to the NFL and NBA having seperate unions. then have different pay grades for redshits, grey shirts, freshmen, sophmores, juniors, seniors, and team captains. Having all the students under the same umbrella drawing the same pay will prevent college sports from collapsing under the weight of football and basketball.

Honestly it might be a good measure to eliminate athletic scholarships and require students to pay their way through by playing the game. that would encourage them to seek academic scholarships, which is what its supposed to be all about anyways

How many do you think would actually qualify to get an academic scholarship?  How many barely qualify just to get in?  Most of these kids have like a 3.0 or something close.  That’s not going to qualify them for an academic scholarship on a scale where many kids go above a 4.0 due to AP credit being able to receive 5.0.

well thats why they are getting a paycheck from the athletic department as part of a “work study program” college students should be rewarded for good grades, not rewarded with just getting by.

essentially im suggesting that you eleminate all athletic scholarships, then pay them as a work study instead of giving them a scholarship. if they can make more than their tuition, room and board then they can pocket the money.

Also they should be able to get health insurance through such a program

haha that would shut them up. 

Ok players if you’re a bench player you only get 1/4th of your tuition paid for until you can earn a starting position.  80% of them would be like “ohhhh never mind my bad I forgot I didn’t have $30,000 to pay for school every year”

Good point.  Most of these kids would have to have major help to even get started by doing this method.  It would keep most kids in state as well, which would be bad news for Clemson and good news for the GA, FL and NC schools who have more talent then they know what to do with.

Well Clemson would dominate USC since if parents are gonna have to pay for school they will want to pay for the better school.  D2 schools athletic departments would disappear.  Actually this move could effectively destroy the NFL too since it would reduce the talent pool considerably.  This would cause lots of problems.  Now I wouldn’t mind if it forced schools to honor 4 year scholarships with more money given to students.

The NFL, if it is killed, will die because of all these new “dangers” we’re finding out about playing football and how it’s effected the mental health of players.  If it gets banned on a HS level because insurance companies no longer want to cover football players, then it could get killed.

Obamacare FTW?  I doubt it.  I’m sure that wouldn’t be offered in the obamacare level that the insurance companies would offer for HS players, that would be a premium benefit. That means only rich white folks will be able to play football, much like the leather helmet days.  Should be fun to watch.  So far the extra $1,600 or so I’ll be paying the insurance company this year has not justified anything to me yet.

If I was the NCAA I would be calling the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, Nike, and Under-armor telling them that if the NCAA gets burned on this one ALL sports will take a huge hit if players get to bargain for money. 


The only thing I can think of right now that I would be fine paying the players for is for NCAA football, baseball, etc to pay the kids for the use of their image.  If you do this force them to pay the same amount to every kid so there isn’t some unfair advantage for playing at a certain school.

Well…i was gonna keep this one under my hat…but since im probably not getting a phd any time soon. in 2015 a new start up company is going to start training astronauts to go to the astroid belt and start mining. the minimum requirements are military service O-3 or higher (i think), a medical degree, or a degree in life/geological sciences with 3 years of field experience or a phd.
