NCAA gives players $2000 a year

10/28/2011:Former UO reporter Allie Grasgreen has the story in Insidehighered.com. It’s way too little for the big revenue football players, and arguably too much for the non-revenue players. Should cost the UO AD about $1,000,000. The real cost will be if the courts then decide this makes the player’s employees – think lawsuits for on-the-job traumatic brain injury damage that shows up years later. Meanwhile, the AD will fight like hell to make sure the money comes out of further subsidies from the academic budget – not out of their own salaries. Will they consider dropping some non-revenue sports?
